Battery upgraded and registered

Recently upgraded my oem battery. I've been researching about batteries for about 1 year now preparing myself for when the time comes. I will purchasing optima 1200 charger and CTEK CTX Battery Sense Module - CTEK 40-149. There were lots of options but I narrowed it down to the following below based on my system I installed in my bmw e90 2007.

BMW AGM battery options

1. Batteries plus Duracell brand 570-900 cca,92ah, 4 year warranty for $214.
2. Bmw stealership $500+ with programming
3. Odyssey 94R-850 FCP.com for $260
4. Optima h6 yellow top direct fit $289 with $50 rebate on BimmerWorld.com

In decided to go with the optima yellowtop h6 for the convenience of having a local warranty location and promotions available at time of purchase. Used my bmw Carly App to register the newer battery specs. The CTEK CTX Battery Sense Module - CTEK 40-149 is super cool device module which connects directly to my battery then syncs on a app with my iPhone! Has the ability to instantly provide battery health on the fly.

I would recommend Kirkland battery, they're manufactured by whoever the Costco supplier is but it's reasonably priced.
After I changed the battery the cranking is so effective, it goes as high as 2100 rpm

when registered H6, do you change Ah setting accordingly? e.g. from factory setting to 72Ah? Thanks.
