Why does my AGM battery not fit?!

Bought this AGM battery from Oreilly's and the stupid mechanism BMW came up for the E90 does not lock on! Am I using the wrong battery? It looks like there should be some kind of ridge for this to lock onto.

The picture is of a 94r that is over a year old. Is that out of a different car or did you buy a used battery? I believe e46's use the 94r.
