How old is my battery? (Picture included)

Is this the original battery? How can I test if it's cells are good etc etc shops have told me all kinds of things from it being perfect to it having bad cells. Also is it an AGM battery?

It's an exide battery NOT oem . OEM battery has Bmw logo on it. Exide does make oem approved BMW batteries. BMW does not make batteries but all batteries made for BMW will have the BMW logo on them. I'm sure you battery is fine, as exide does make BMW batteries but to answer your question that is not the original battery.

Nope. My OEM battery was made by Exide and looked exactly like that. The bold number on the upper left of the picture is the BMW part number.

OP: It's most likely the original one. Not AGM. Are you having battery issues?

Looks exactly like the one I just replaced in my car. I would post a pic but I'm on mobile. Mine had the Exide logo and the BMW logo.

It was the original battery on a 2009.
