Battery Core Charge???

I have read extensively about battery's for our cars but I've never came across anything about a "core charge" like you get with other "regular" batterys.

Do dealerships or indy shops reimburse you for your core at all?

That depends on the state law (recycling), it's to prevent improper disposal...I kept mine and was charged $15 back in 2011.....best $15 I ever spent, the battery is still in use in an Audi....it's not a core like when you buy a turbo, you pay $500 and get the $500 back so they get the old part....

Texas.... In the past with all my other vehicles I've got a few good dollars back from old batteries, alternators, starters, etc.. Yet I've never came across the procedure in relation to BMW's.
