Battery problems

Well it looks like my post has people researching whether to pay their income taxes now or not....but in regards to the battery I got a call from an independent repair shop and they said on the 2007 that I have it is necessary to register it and they do it for free if you have them put in the battery. But since it was over New Years and they were closed I did it myself so my wife is taking it I over to them tomorrow to get it registered just to be safe and she will find out what they would have charged to replace the battery had we have them do it and then what they are going to charge to register it...will let you know once this is done. This guy claimed it can cause the battery to not last as long or even possibly do the battery in...but I still think this is somewhat of a BMW scam as everything is so sophisticated it should be able to know a new battery has been put in....but I guess better safe than sorry!
