im not entirely sure but i believe distilled water thing is for the older batteries cuz nowadays most are completely sealedJust replaced mine today!
I killed the old one installing items (draining) on the vehicle. Payed $70 for a Duralast 49-DL with exchanging the old battery (the previous owner had put in a Duralast 48-DL). Fits great except for the top, had to place a shim. Performance was awesome, started right away.
Are batteries completely maintenance free? I have read someplace about adding distilled water?
Nice setup impin: how many dbs did you hit with those DDs???Heres my new battery. I got the Kinetik HC2400. It has 2600CCA I had to cut out he top of the cover to fit it.
And heres a shot of the stereo setup
What a total load of bullshit. As long as the capacity is the same or greater than the original battery and it physically fits in the compartment an aftermarket battery is no different than one with a BMW logo on it. Do you think BMW has it's own battery factory?beaware that sometimes bmws done like "aftermarket" batteries i have seen alot of times cars come back with other electrical problems...so if anything else weird starts to happen you wll know where to look
