The link saved me $35 instantly. The battery can be used on X3, X5, X6, 3 Series and 5 Series. I got free installation at local Advance Auto Parts store. My local BMW dealer confirmed that there is no need to register a battery on a 07 X3.

Thanks for the link bowang! My total came to $113.99 (free shipping) and will be ready for pick up in (2) days for my new battery. This is much easier to digest than the $600 I was quoted...yuck.
