In this situation I think you're confusing "simple-minded" with "single-minded".

Considering my environmental variables differ greatly from yours, I'd say my decision to have someone else do what I've been doing for the past 35 years makes sense.

First off:
Ever change a battery in sub-freezing weather, at 6am, right before work? I have and quite frankly, I didn't enjoy it.
Since the Bimmer is my only car, I also didn't feel like walking 6 miles to buy a new one and lug that bettery back under my arm. Done that a few times in my younger years and it wasn't the pleasant experience one might think it to be.
And thirdly:
Why buy a membership to AAA if you don't use it?

Bluebee, I'm glad you're here to educate those that require it and create really cool topics fit for publishing in Bentley, but let's keep the acid in the battery. m-kay?
