2009 BMW M3: Battery location
December 24, 2009
I was rummaging around the trunk of our long-term 2009 BMW M3 the other day, looking for the owner's book, when I came across this little cubby.
Hit the jump to find out what's underneath; plus, a Christmas bonus!
It's the battery of course. Two things are interesting. First, you can see that there are two positive cables running out and routed to the engine bay of the car (positive lead can be seen in bottom right pic.)
The second is the truly nasty look of that recycled trunk liner material. But we're only talking about the hidden part, the side you see everyday is fine. And I like that BMW and other carmakers are increasing the content of recycled materials in areas normally out of sight and touch.
Christmas bonus! Extra pics showing the esquisite detail Bryn's InsideLine gingerbread garage.
