Battery Light

Help...My battery light came on this morning on my 99' 328i. First, what does this mean? Second, where is the battery located? Third, how much do they cost and wher can I get one?

It's in the trunk, possibly under the spare tire cover. The light may mean the alternator needs a check. How old is the battery? Is it starting the car well and holding a charge?

Batterys in the trunk... RHS under the black plastic cover. Best to first check if the alternator is charging the battery-take it to any auto or electrical shop and they'll checck it for free..
