Agm Battery For 1m

So at dealer yesterday getting airbag replaced. Asked them to check battery and it's at 50% and needs replacing. It's original. Even though I've had it on the CTEK Charger for 6 months. It's time for a new battery.

From what I've gathered on this forum, (and since the original battery has been discontinued) looks like some recommend 61212353811 for a replacement which is 70, and with 680 CCA.

Dealer said I should NOT use that battery because it is NOT an "AGM" like the original.

So my question is has anyone discovered the best AGM replacement for the 1M original battery? Does it matter if it's not AGM? Thanks!!
