    Battery box from walmart($7 ftw!)
    4ga wire I had laying around
    6 ring terminals(I lost one of them in my front suspension somewhere, still can't find it haha)
    That's pretty much it. Onto the pics.

    Sorry for cell phone pics!

    4 Gauge is pretty small, you'd probably get better juice flow with a 2 Gauge positive.

    BMWs have a factory "relocated" battery. It's offset in the passenger side rear to help crossweight.
