Is the battery that comes with the X5 special? Do you have to get another BMW battery? Or can I borrow the one out of my Rav 4 to get it started?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

This car will have a DIN type battery, you will see that the battery post are no higher than the battery case, ad if you fit a more conventional battery it may cause a problem, just be aware of metal striking the pos terminal as this will cause a flash and can often destroy electrical equipment, I would be fitting the correct battery.
