You'll need to find out the exact battery model your car requires as there are a number of different ones which were OEM for '07.

And then you will need to have the new battery registered so it will play nice with the IBS, JBE, alternator, etc.

Given all this, I had my dealer do it. While it cost $400, I know it was done right and there is a 2 year warranty on parts and labor.

i bought an oem battery from my dealer for $170 2 days ago, installed myself and a friendly indy shop registered it for me for free. I would highly recommend getting an oem and making sure you register it with the car.

How do you go about registering a new battery yourself?

Thanks!
