I bought this battery to replace the 6 year old battery on my 2004 BMW X5 3.0i. The battery for the X5 is installed inside the passenger compartment under the spare tire. My primary concern was getting a battery that was an EXACT fit and this battery is. The battery even includes a vent hole that fits the vent tube installed in the car. Don't expect the people at the parts store to install it because it takes at least 45 minutes. (Remove rear deck cover, remove jack, remove spare, remove air compressor bracket to get to the battery. Once exposed installation was a snap). It took me about 1 hour to install. Also, I used a "battery maintainer" supply 12 volt power to the OBD2 connector under the dash while I changed the battery. It cost about $13 and I had to connect it to an external battery pack, but it saved all of radio settings and control computer settings. It was well worth the time and $ to use it. I don't know how long this battery will last, [$] It has a 3 year warranty and 84 month prorated so I am hopeful. I figure I saved about $100 over buying the battery from the dealer.

QDR - Update your data base for the correct size battery. Ordering online and picking up is a good deal if the part is correct, but not if you require multiple trips to correct a computer data base error[...] Had to "buy" two batteries to make one work since one was bought on-line with in-store pick up.

    store should have suggested drain test which is what problem truly was. However, while website states that a drain test on the cars electrical system can be made, the store said it could not perform test. What the hell!?

                    • Q:

                      Will this battery work in my 2008 BMW 328xi? My current battery reads: 12V 90Ah 720A 160RC 720CCA
                      I believe it is not the newer AGM type.

                      I've heard that if I get a battery with a different Ah capacity the car needs to be reprogrammed to match. What is the capacity of this battery? Is there one that matches the 90Ah of my current one perfectly?

                        Yes, the AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 94R, 730 CCA - Part No. 94RH7 will fit your 2008 BMW 328xi. However this battery comes with a lesser amp hour of 80 AH. If you want a higher AH battery I would recommend the AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 49, 760 CCA - Part No. 49H8 which comes with 95 AH. Once you have replaced the battery you may need to check with the dealer to get the car programmed for it.

                      I just looked at this battery at my local store. It does look like it has a vent hole on both the negative and positive side that would accommodate my 2002 BMW 325CI. Earlier posts here state that there is no vent. Have the specs changed ? Unfortunately the rep at the store was unable to help me.

                        Autocraft Battery, Group Size 94R, Part No. 94RH7 is incorrectly listed as 730 CCA. This is correctly displayed as 765 CCA in the product specifications. We are working on having this inconsistency addressed as soon as possible.

                        Battery is vented, but be sure and remove the elbow pipe fitting from your old battery. Vent opening is near positive terminal, about 1/4" diameter.

                        Yes it is vented. I just replaced my battery in a 2005 X5 with this one and used the old vent tube.
