The OPTIMA H7 YELLOWTOP Deep-Cycle Battery represents the ultimate in automotive battery technology for modern, accessory-loaded BMWs and other vehicles. Superior manufacturing, new (un-recycled) internal components, and latest tech combine in a package that's ideally suited for many BMW models including E82 1-series, 3-series (E46, E90, E91, E92, E93), 5-series (E60, F10), E83 X3, E53 X5, E85 Z4, and E89 Z4.
This battery is designed to replace many of the factory BMW batteries without any additional mounting hardware. It has a foot print that measures 12.5" x "7" x 7.5" tall and offers 80 amp hours of capacity with 880 cold cranking amps for reliable starting and cold-weather performance. The top terminal posts are oriented correctly for most BMW applications.
If you are looking for a premium battery, superior to the "generic" batteries you may find at the local parts store, we would urge you to try the Optima H7 for your BMW application. This is a longer lasting battery that is up to the task for some of the newer BMW models where sitting days/weeks at a time can deplete the charge and hurt the longterm longevity of your battery. The OPTIMA H6 direct-fit battery is designed to be a super long lasting battery that holds its charge better than other batteries on the market.
No mounting kit required! This new H7 direct-fit battery does not require a mount kit, and installs in the factory battery location. (If you are looking for our light-weight / compact battery option, please check out our D35 battery options as well!)

OPTIMA H7 Direct-Fit Battery Benefits:
- Maintenance-free for your BMW - Deep-cycle with powerful cranking power - Up to 3X longer life than the parts store batteries - 15 times more vibration resistance - Sealed and virtually spill-proof - Mountable in virtually any position (but terminals located and suitable for BMWs) - Faster charging / recharging - Optimal starting power for high compression BMW engines - 300+ discharge/recharge cycles for a long life Please note that on newer BMWs (2006+) you should perform a coding procedure any time the battery is replaced. Coding the battery to the car ensures best performance and life.
This battery is sized for BMW applications better than the H6 - it's the same width and height but longer for a more direct fit and the same orientation and installation as the factory. The quality internals and high-tech design allow an ideal capacity and output, and without being too large for an OEM fit.
