Also you don't have to replace with OEM. You just have to have an AGM type battery with the same specs. Did you get an AGM type Interstate with the same specs as OEM?
EDIT: I agree it's BS we have to register our batteries. I have a BT tool though so I can do it myself.
I dont think they are all AGM,there are wet cell batteries listed on real oem also. I dont think the BT tool has the capability to specify type of battery, but if you go to real OEM, the parts listing for batteries shows a service instruction that the type of battery must be registered also. I suppose that would only be an issue if you changed types.
