The battery in my '94 540i is getting tired. I searched around looking
for a Douglas battery (OE manufacturer for US) to replace it with and
found that they have recently divested themselves of their automotive
Does anyone have any first hand experience with a good replacement for
BMWs? I have always liked the "Interstate" batteries, but I am curious
if anyone has used any of the others.
Realize that many of the brands used in Europe are nor available in the
US and batteries are not an item one wants to have shipped, so looking
for something locally available in the New England area.
Oh, also, the 540i takes a BCI group 93 battery which is a beast. It's
one of the highest CCA batteries out there. Most of the other battery
manufacturer's web sites that I've visited recommend a BCI group 49
(similar shape) for my application , probably because they don't make a 93.
Any experiences with group 49's? What CCA?
