Dunno whether it was truly a coincidence or if the 'better' electrical connection exposed a weakness, or caused one.
Yeah I texted the technician over at BMW of Davenport right after i got the warning, hes a cool guy i know him, and he told me that I probably need a new battery or it needs to be charged, but I think it's BS because my car was fine before that damn replacement. I don't think it's fair that I would have to pay for a new battery if it was fine before hand.
