7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Battery registration cost

I was going to replace my battery with a non-oem AGM battery but ask my local indy shop what they would charge for registration. I was told it would be $135 for registration only. Seems a little high to me but wanted to know what the average should be and can any shop that works on foreign cars do the registration?

If you have INPA or toolset32 on your laptop its a 20 second ordeal, very easy to do.
$135 is a crime

I sadly do not have that in my laptop. What's even crazier is I called my local bmw dealership and ask them for a price on a battery. They gave me the cost but said I didn't need to register the battery based on my VIN.

That's funny. Buy the battery from them, have them to put in writing that it does not need to be registered so when it dies in 3 months they will replace and register for free like it should be in the first place

Go on ebay and buy the USB INPA diagnostic cable, install INPA on your laptop, and register it yourself. Its really easy to do, and will only cost like $25.
