I hope you didn't burn out your ABS module too. Those things are very sensitive to low voltage.
Given the price to replace that ABS part, it's known sensitivity to low voltage, and the chance failure due to low voltage just outside of warranty I believe that the battery should be a maintenance replacement item at 24 months (better $100 every two years than $2,000+ for the repair). I believe BMW is remiss in not making more note of this sensitivity.
Some people have reported great, long life, service from their batteries but as for me .... I replace at 2 years so I won't pay for that repair again (at least not for battery reasons).
Good luck on your starter.
