Where did you buy it from, and how much? Looking for cheapest price

Any good options out there for replacement? Any deals that people have received from dealers with coding?

08 Vert 35K miles, I operate the top w/ the car off and yet battery is still going strong.

When I store the car for a month or more I remove the negative side of battery.

I still need to take it for the recall ~ !

78k and still have the original battery. Replacing inz in the next week or so, I keep getting intermittent "Personal Access Convience Group Failure" codes.

07/08 build, 50k and still on the original battery.

No issues so far, knock on wood.

I do put a battery tender on it while in winter storage...

You can only buy it from BMW. I have a friend who works there and got me employee pricing. The labor to install it costs more than a Bav Tech cable though, so it was a no brainer for me.

$417 at my dealer, but I'm still milking the original bat.

12/2007 build date, 52000 km. only summer driven, no issues. Had the car sitting for a couple hours while doing various coding and it fired right up, my previous BMW (09 E90) sat for less time and needed a boost after the same coding, but it was driven year round and not garage stored.

Will be going DIY on the change, probably summer 2016
