My battery was original and after 6 years still stared the engine without
issues.No error on the dash either.

The symptoms were:
1.My 12v equipment always complained about low voltage
2.Dealer scanned my codes during one visit and said one fault read:Aged
battery,replace.

You can buy any AGM battery as longas:
1.It is either H8 or H7 group/size/design
2.It is 80,90 or 92ah (amper-hours)
A larger capacity (ah) battery may be OK too.
Some F10s come with 80Ah battery and some with 90Ah.Probably depends on
climate.
