Where do you guys get battery installed?

BMW specialist shop quote me $311+tax,
local BMW dealership quote me $330-450 in tax (depends what kind battery you have)
Tischer do not ship batteries, so going US picking up isn't a option here,

I see many people in GTA get their battery installed around $200 range,
how about you guys in GVA?

in gta i got my battery for $170~ + tx from dealership and installed myself. it is pretty straight forward to do but some what annoying and requires some elbow grease and a strong back to lift/align battery into case.

But you need to register it to the car for it to charge properly!

Rmp can register it for you, they did mine and many others on this forum!

Buy a good battery and then hook it up yourself. Here's a thread where a guy wrote software to initialize the battery to your car .. and the sw is free
