2007 E92 328i dead battery replaced....

Replaced my dead battery a few days ago at 87k miles (6.5 years it lasted). Before installing the new battery from the dealership (cost $229 plus tax) I was told as long as I matched my battery with a similar model and specs (Exide brand supplied for BMW from the dealership), that I wouldn't have to reset or register the new battery. Only issue after replacing the battery was a CC ID 259 window anti-trap deactivated error code occurred and it was a simple fix. No other issues after install. Will post any problems I may get if I do.

that is incorrect info. Even though you matched the battery, the charging system needs to know that it is working with a new battery. It is not the end of the world if you dont register, but your battery life may be shortened when the system overcharges it assuming it is the old depleted battery.

You don't have to code it if the specs are the same but you will need to register it. I registered my using my Bav tool.

I'm going to be the guinea pig on this one! You can't really over charge a car battery when you are constantly using the radio, day time running lamps, and everyday use of interior lights and car anti-theft system, besides alternators don't usually last the life of a car on a daily driver like mine. Alternators are usually the culprit why batteries go bad early as well due to normal wear and tear. We will see how much longer a new battery will last without registering it.
