$200. Just buy the right one. Ton of posts on this

You "should" register the battery, but pretty easy to do- a single button press. Most decent euro shops will have a tool... $20? $50? It is a one minute job. Or buy one.

Dont stress about it- change the batt, then sometime in the next week or two, register it. SOme people dont blow up

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label

OEM is not what BMW sells
