what are acceptable batteries to use other then interstate?
i have been told that only interstate batteries that can handle this much electricity can be
used is this true and what other types of batteries may be used if possible?
yes....the walmart batteries will not have the warranty or the power....my Dad is the VP of Engineering...35 years as an Electrochemical Engineer...I've no choice but to support interstate~
thought so, i noticed my x5 was acting funny and i check the battery and it's from orielys thought interstate was the only one with the proper specs. thank you
I work at NAPA. We sell batteries for BMWs all the time. Never any issues. Our batteries are made by Deka. When buying a battery you're looking for cold cranking amps (CCA) and reserve capacity. CCA should match what the vehicle originally called for. This information can usually be found in your owner's manual. Reserve capacity is how long you can drive, at night, with all accessories off, except of course the headlights if the alternator fails. Usually 90 minutes of reserve capacity is good. This will get you home or to a service facility before the car dies. HTH. -Jim
would take napa over interstate... delco is the best in my opinion.
I would choose interstate over any other battery.
My Interstate MT-91 Megatron was put in my Z3 in 2003. Just had to replace it in 2015,
Hi ,I bought a Diehard Gold Battery AMG for my BMW X5 xdrive35i 2011 and it work excellent with lots power punch 850 CC of power it the best battery for my i wouldn't buy anything else for my BMW X5 the best battery money can buy !!!!!!
I would never put a interstate battery in my BMW X5 ,a Diehard Gold AMG 850 CC is perfect battery for my BMW X5 xdrive35i 2011 its works perfect nothing like a Diehard Gold AMG Battery its the best from Sears 850 CC its the best battery with 36 months warranty bring it back at anytime to Sears .
I like Interstate a lot and have one in my Kubota but I have recently started changing over to Optima which can be shipped UPS and the price you get from Amazon is competitive with the standard lead acid batteries you can get at AutoZone and other retailers.
