: My car is a Feb99 production and the battery is PN 61 21 8 381 738. It is white with two grey/tan folding, carrying handles. The top is covered with a heavy vinyl (?) label. I can see the outlines of the cell openings below the label but can't get to them without removing (?) the label. The only things on top are the +pole,- pole and the green "eye." I can see where the top pieces are assembled to the case but I tried to pry them up without damaging with no success.
: Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks.

What you've got sounds like a sealed battery. The confusion comes from the fact that virtually all before yours were standard (add water) batteries. These have exposed caps with slots for a removal tool. The "green eye" is typical of sealed batteries. Perhaps BMW has finally decided to upgrade the battery in new models.
