Hi my name is ***** ***** BMW the AGM battery needs to be registered with the cars onboard computer normally using main dealer equipment, some specialist garages might have the equipment but it does sound like this is the problem,

if the car has registered that it has a new battery it will still show the warning, hope this helps
