You will not need to CODE the car, that is only for the black batteries on 5 series. You need to REGISTER the new battery, this resets the charging system...it lets the system know there is a new battery in the car and not to continue charging harder on the new battery as it was for the weakened battery.
If you do not register it, the worst that can happen is it will shorten the life of the battery.
