Thank you. You don't happen to know where that guide is, do you?

If this battery is the same one that is sold at autozone (just under a different label), then it is somewhere around 150. If you divide 150 by 2, and add 16 (a formula I found on e90post for converting reserve minutes to amp-hours), then you are left with 91Ah, which is closest to what your car is already coded to.

Is it even possible to find the reserve rating as it's not listed in the specs. There is also an Autozone nearby. If we know their battery is the right fit to not have to do any modifications, should I just go that route?

Here is the autozone one, it's not the same as the CCA is different, it's got 790 CCA and 140 reserve for $164: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...3386_636952_0_

or Advanced with 765 CCA and 140 reserve for $166:
