Thanks, great write-up! I got the same battery and swapped it out in the AutoZone parking lot in Lynnwood, WA yesterday. $188 total. Strictly BMW Bellevue, WA is going to do the code registration early next week for $64 total.
The hardest part, I though, was lining up the foam brace blocks when lowering the new battery in.
By the way, when these batteries get tired, these cars randomly shut down sub systems when potential is low. Some weird and scary **** can happen.
