Hello, i'm from Barcelona (spain) and i decided to install a lightweight battery into my M3. That's why i contacted with Tony from VOLTPHREAKS (www.voltphreaks.com
). I chose to install the VPH900 Lithium Battery.
I'm going to describe how i did the installation of this battery into my e92 M3 with a few pictures:
When i recived the battery with aluminium SAE terminals.
Battery comparision: 26 kg against 3 kg
I did two small holes to install a plastic bridles
Velcro at the bottom of the battery to avoid sliding.
Velcro in the battery hole and also you can see the small holes.
Voltphreaks Battery, i installed a rope in one side that i tightened with a plastic bridles in the other side.

The battery is amazing and i haven't had any problems. The battery is very well fixed with this installation.
