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

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.
