I priced out a battery for a 2011 335i and it came to $145 (vs. $200 MSRP). It is an EXIDE brand. For that price I would not bother taking a chance at Sears, AutoZone, etc.
Now the question is what will a dealer charge to register the battery once it is installed. That's where the hosing takes place.
