Well, it looks like my battery is on the way out and someone recently told me that BMW batteries were know to be ... well, less than great. Having not heard this before, I submit this poll to you.

Will an aftermarket battery affect the safety feature that disconnects the positive terminal lead from the battery?
I don't think it should.
A battery is a battery is a battery, right? :dunno:

Battery replacement

It seems to me that these low (no) maintenance batteries loose a good bit of their capacity when they get completely discharged. They never have the same "power" after that.
