Assistance with DIY battery install (Denver Metro)

Hi there -
I'm wondering if any Denver area folks can help out with a DIY battery install, namely assisting with remapping the new battery to the car.
Please email me at telegrammatic [at] gmail [dot] com if you can help out. I'll be happy to compensate you via a case beer of your choice. :-)

The car is a 06 330xi.

Thanks!

Thanks a ton Andrew. After some further research, it appears that my OEM battery has an "eye" that indicates battery life. There's a green/black/yellow status -- yellow being the status that indicates replacement. Mine's still on black but I have a sneaking suspicion that it will turn yellow soon. The battery seems to struggle in colder temps (which it didn't do last year).

I don't know if you've seen this thread, but it's a great write-up.

If you don't mind, I'll reach out when the yellow status crops up -- I'm guessing in the next month or so.

Thanks!

need help with 328xi battery replacement

Folks

I have 07 328xi and today afternoon it wont start up while i returned to a parking lot after a meeting. i guess after a few failed start up attempts i realise the the battery might be shot. ( its been running for 7 years). soon after all kinds of error messages started flashing and then it got to a point where it would not do anything. I tried jump starting with a friends help but it tries very hard but cant get itself to start up. Looks like i need a new battery and need to replace it.

Ideally i would go the dealership but i am guessing that this might be an expensive affair and looking at all the DYI options i am wondering if somebody can help me with the replacement and also the battery programming.

If any of the folks don't mind helping me get it installed and getting it reprog i would be more than happy to buy you couple of cases of beer that you fancy .

Also could you let me know best place to order a replacement battery .

Please excuse my ignorance and the fact that i am a newbie when it comes to cars tech.
