Thanks so much again
Both AGM and the lead cell are OEM, but if you can't source an AGM the older battery is fine. AGM is a newer technology and better for several reasons. Here is a list of a few of the advantages.

Personally I would register the battery for the longer life.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
