The 10 year old AGM in my zed was showing signs of impending death this week so I just replaced it with a Varta AGM. Found a source with a good price so if I get 10 years out of this one too I'm not complaining!

I suspect that the Z4M had an AGM specced only because M cars are more likely to sit for longer periods.
