    when you change the battery on the newer BMW, you need to have the new battery registered into the car system. This will tell the car that a new battery is installed and the charging rate will be adjusted accordingly to a new battery.

    My recommendation is to call my usual battery guy Sam at +60127095532 and inform your car model and he will bring the right battery for you. He will even do the installation & battery registration to the car. Just inform that you are a friend of Danny with White F10.

    Yes. Unless you have those gizmos that can do the registration of the battery to the car system.

    Apparently Banner is of of the suppliers of AGM batteries to BMW. Guess BMW now lets Banner compete with Varta. Physically looks the same, apart fm the markings. if BMW uses them in their productions, guess we should also.
