Well, it has to be registered if there's a computer on top of the battery.

Looks like. Check THIS - item #2 - IBS [Intelligent Battery Sensor? That's a power mangement chip. Battery's gotta be registered.]

Notice: No price - should be, what, $500?

Another battery cable recall. Call the dealer and ask them to run your vin.

E46 and older chassis do not need registration.
