    Any difference between the AGM battery from Autozone vs Advance Auto? I do not have a local NAPA or Pepboys store close to me.

    OT: I really want a lithium car battery. They are just too expensive right now.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one, IMO.

    Battery died on me yesterday, and won't take a charge... Going to grab one of those in this thread unless there's a newer recommendation?

    Also - I heard from a friend the computer needs to be told when a new battery is installed, but I read on E46Fanatics that this is only on E90 and newer models. Which is right?

    Hey, long time didn't hear from you my fellow MA member. I was thinking that you sold you zhp. Based your comment, I can conclude that you still have it and I am glad to hear it.

    Glad to hear that car is bringing smiles.
    I am good. Still have both zhp. Your old steering wheel was successfully re-wrapped in leather and installed on my wife's car.
