e90 Battery

To make a long story short, I got my car back from service and my battery was dead. I told them that I questioned the battery and they assured me that it was good. The horrible customer service and BMW West in Houston TX makes me wonder why I bought there extra maintence and warranty package. No need to go into how bad I was treated there, makes me too mad . I replaced the battery myself with the Oddyssey PC1700L (Dry Cell), very expensive but so far it is really good. I waxed my car yesterday and had the stock radio playing all day, battery didnt even hesitate. What do you guys think??

I'm not sure on the stock battery spec to compare but you can, it's on your battery. I think it's the cold crank that matters most. Correct me if I'm wrong.
