+1 Agreed. Also there is a way around getting the battery registered. You can use a transfer tool that essentially keeps the computer running at all times during the battery exchange. Its as if the battery never reset or was even removed from the car. Keeps all your settings and no need to register. I did this to mine not 2 weeks ago
