Buying a Replacement Battery for BMW 320i

Sadly, your BMW 320i won't last forever. Neither will its battery. On average, auto batteries last anywhere from three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your BMW 320i stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A sluggish engine start, an illuminated battery or check engine light, swollen battery case, corroded battery terminals, or faded headlights can all signal that your battery needs attention.
