bmw 61 21 7 555 285 battery

Was going to charge my e92 330i battery it has the part number as in title and is a 80ah battery I know to charge it through the connectors in the engine bay however is this an AGM battery or not? My car does not have start stop btw, I need to know as the charger has different settings.
Thanks

This:

has the same part number as you've quoted, and clearly says VRLA/AGM on the label under the part numbers.

Thank you very much for finding this. For some reason mine doesn't have the VRLA/AGM written on it there, it has the warning and the varta logo though. I'm guessing it's got to be AGM though if the part number is the same, is it better to charge with an AGM or normal cycle if unsure of the battery type?
Thanks
Rhys

AGM has a lower peak charge voltage, so better to use AGM if your unsure.
