07 e92 battery - dallas area

looks like my battery gave up on my 07 e92 with roughly 54k miles. Dont really feel like spending $400.00 + just on battery and registration.

Can anyone here in Dallas area recommend other options that have worked, its always mixed opinion whether to buy a battery from autozone/walmart/costco etc and not getting it registered or go to bmw dealership to buy and get it registered.

need a new battery asap... Car is just sitting in garage.

Not in Dallas, but I ended up buying a battery at Walmart and got it registered at a local euro repair shop. The battery was around $100 and the shop charged $60 to register it. Been 8 months and car runs great.

Wow, I wasn't aware that a battery had to be registered and that it would be 400 bucks for it. I hope everything works out and get a good deal.

I picked up one at Walmart too with similar specs as my OEM and never had any issues without registering it.. i had an 07 with similar miles when my battery died.. Also did you try charging the battery? They sell chargers for $50.. try that first.. if you take your battery out you can drop it off for a free overnight charge at autozone...

walmart battery + home registration. total cost ~$120.

Lots of people with '07s and up are going to start reaching the end of the OE battery life. These cars are good at eeking out lots of juice, but 5+ years is about all anyone can ask of a car battery around here.

Is the whole "battery registering" thing new for the E90/later models? Because when my E39's battery died I just picked one up at Autozone and never had any issues with it. The 335 is the only car I've ever owned that had any specific battery coding/registration requirements that I've known about...

I have the same car - 07 E92, built Aug. of 06. Bought a battery at BMW of Austin last year, and with my BMW CCA discount, the battery and registration came to less than $300.
