Just replaced my battery. Cost 350 for a non gen vs approx 520 for a gen.

Might be a placebo but gearbox (6AT) seems to shift better

Where did you get it? And did you get it coded? I called a couple of places when I was getting the warning message and they all said oh you have a x BMW sorry we can't help.

My Indy mechanic (ex BMW master tech) supplied and fitted it. Coded it to the car as well. Took about 40 mins to do everything.
