Mein Auto: 2004-525 I

(2004 525i) This is something that I cannot understand of WHY these cars HAVE to be REGISTERED when replacing a simplistic damn battery as opposed to OTHER cars. I bought a battery from NAPA ($180.00) and had the stealership change it out and THEY charged me ($188.00) to do the "5 minute" battery exchange and of course when it was time to pay up, they said "it had to be registered" to the cars computer. WTF?!?!?! Explaining that the computer has to be "erased" from the current battery and "reprogramed" to the new battery. WTF kind of german engineering is THIS? Pure BULL****! Not too happy with my (1st) BMW. How stupid...... My 2005 Honda Accord that I kicked to the curb is WAY better. Plus it does not have the STUPID "I-DRIVE". Sorry, but that's how I feel.....
