Replace Battery in SF/Marin Area.

Anybody have recommendations for a place to replace a E92 battery in the San Francisco/Marin County Area? Sonnen BMW in Marin County wants a ludicrous $520 plus tax.

There are shops in the bay area that do coding. Not sure how much they will charge to register a battery.

Change the battery yourself and OEM Batteries cost $150-200 depending on your cars options also coding is ONLY necessary if you change the battery to a different rated one then the OEM. But if you buy an OEM that's same rated then all you need to do is register it, sometimes it's not even necessary to register it.
