My car is not a compact, the battery is still in the front. All Nordic E46s are like this.

They would much rather have it in the rear if there was actually space for it, but since there is not they have to put it in the front.

Unless we are not talking about a compact.

the compact is a 4 cyl (in the states)

4 cyls get a battery in the front, 6 cyls get it in the trunk (or under seats in 5, 7 series)

how much do you think an engine weighs??? a 4 cylinder engine is only 2/3 as big as a 6 cyl. A third of an engine is a decent chunk of weight, that's why 4 cyls have bat up front, 6 cyls have it out back
