Battery Replacement Question

So I was able to remove the battery on my 335i Coupe 07, but this wire I can't figure out where it connects to, It stems off the second red wire but I can't find any connector, what is this to where should this be connected can someone help??

Just a guess but I thought I read somewhere it is to keep the battery charged when they are shipping the car over for Germany

Just a wild guess

If that's the case that would be awesome cause I am really lost as to where this thing came from rofl, I man handled the battery so wasn't sure If I ripped something out by mistake. The Ground Terminal area was a little tight to work in.

Anyways picked up a battery from Walmart for 118.00 today after being left stranded at my house with a dead battery. I'll install tomorrow, if anyone else can confirm this plug that would be great.

You will need to get someone to code the battery to the car so you will have no problems.

Lots of threads on coding and not coding the new battery.

I have a cable I'll code myself

I bought the Everstart 94R 11 which was what was listed in the book at walmart. Just to be Sure, is this the correct battery? I couldn't find any specs on the battery other than 765 CCA which makes a difference but not really a big difference imo compared to 720 CCA on the OEM.

I couldn't verify ah, even online I couldn't find the specs on the battery but the 94R seems to be what everyone has been recommending on the forum but couldn't verify the 11 other than the book. Plus no other 94R's on the shelf.

Seems to be slightly smaller than the OEM battery but I am sure it will fit when I go out in the morning to install.

Is the connector the object with the intense glare in the first pic?

Yeah hard to get a picture of it, I couldn't find my digital camera.

but from other post I realize that people said that it's not used, so I zip tied it to the wire so it wouldn't dangle and registered the battery and it's all good to go!.

Yeah, read the battery DYI, there is a spare wire that doesn't connect. It looks like a flimsy pc wire.
