Spending the few $$ for the app and adapter was not too bad an investment anyway since Bimmerlink has some other cool features in addition to battery registration PLUS it shows any and all faults and allows you to clear them as well! It's pretty handy to have that functionality on my iPhone since I can use it in a pinch!

BTW, what battery did you get?
Ah, I see, that's cool! I got the ACDelco 49AGM (900CCA/95ah) battery. I've only had it for three weeks, so time will tell how good it is. I was looking for a direct replacement (Exide) but had no luck finding one but on ebay so I settled for this one.
