FYI, cost me like $180 I think, did the install myself (recommend getting help, that sucker is HEAVY).

Not an invalid recommendation by any means.

But on a serious note, the reason I say 2 people is because you can easily crush the harnesses by mistake with that big ass battery. The opening is barely bigger than the battery itself, so it'd be useful to have someone hold the wire out of the way,

Here's the thread I mentioned:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=810387

Not sure, huh? *lol* That's interesting, as, just like I said, I've done it, so I *am* sure.

Software: http://**************.com/BMWLogger

Anything else?
Which MS version of the BMWLogger software do we need for the E9x M cars?

Just got this one from NAPA, only took 1 day for them to get order in as well. http://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/Ca...94R_0476125775

Direct replacement $190.00, with Buddys Discount got it for $140. Sure beats buying one at dealership for $400
