Mein Auto: 2007 X3
Battery Type - Standard, AGM or GEL?

Hello,

I have a 2007 X3, and the last 7 VIN number is WF23041. The part number on the battery is S: 61 21 8 385 398. Since I don't drive my car often, I bought a battery charger to avoid the battery drains out. But I need to choose battery type on the charger. Does anyone know it's a Standard, AGM, or GEL battery? I contacted couple of local dealers, but they didn't know.

Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure its a standard battery. The E83 didn't come with AGM batteries as standard

Thank you very much for the answer! That's what I thought. But I got confused after couple people told me that it's a AGM battery because it's sealed and maintains free. Nowadays almost all car batteries are sealed and maintains free, but most of them are regular wet cell batteries.
