I paid $158 for the H8-AGM battery and 3 weeks later took to Fields where they registered battery to car for $75. It is the exact same battery as the BMW branded battery. Johnson Controls/Exide makes the battery here in US. Autozone has a complete unconditional 3 year warranty and 7 year prorated warranty if you buy it from them. So if it dies within 3 years I don't pay one dime to replace it at AutoZone. BMW only warranty for 2 year. Do the math and give your wife a dozen roses with the money you save.
