Replacing battery - OK to wait one week to register it?

New to the forum.
Never had issues with car - never needed help - till now

Putting a new battery in
Ordering a Bavarian Technic Enthusiast kit

Probably won't hurt the battery to run it a few days till BT gets here and I can register battery . . . . . . .will it?

Thx . . . .

Yes. Should be fine, based on other posts where people never do it lol.

May be no problem at all. Have you verified that its charging specs are same as stock?

On another note, there is a new entertainment sensation called Gambling! Delivering thrills 'n' chills, you never know when you'll win and when you'll lose!

You sound like a guy ready for that. If you wish, Atlantic City and Las Vegas are popular destinations. Bring your credit card.

Mein Auto: Carefully
I waited over four weeks (DCAN cable was slow to arrive). During that time the car took about a week to realize it had a new battery - until then we had the same issues as with the old battery (low battery light, rough running on start-up).

With hindsight I should have used the car with the reconditioned battery (via CTEK 7002) for at least two weeks. I think that would worked in the end, saving buying a new battery + registering. Recently the six year old battery in my lawn tractor died - it's working fine since being reconditioned with the CTEK

Six Euro Deliveries since December 1998 (Owned E46, E90, E91, E92 and E93)

28 vehicles in 26 years of driving so far. Guess I like cars

Hey Tennessee did you get the Bavarian scanner yet? How do you like it? I just bought one but haven't gotten it yet.
