New 1er battery supplier/availability

Believe it or not, Home Depot now sells Exide car batteries. The Exide NASCAR L5/48X (760 CCA -replaces some of the 1er OEM batteries) sells for $99, and it was in stock. Their website lists the L5/49X battery (900 CCA - swaps for my 128i battery) sells for $119, but you have to find it in the store. I'm going to ask the store to order one for me.

Check realoem.com BMW part numbers to confirm these batteries will work.

More reasonable than dealer pricing.

If you can manage to program the battery you are set otherwise you might have a problem.

I'll take the car to my Indy shop for the battery registration. I'm just happy to save $hundreds by not having to buy the battery from BMW.
