E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: X1, 128
Back in November, wife's 128 had a dead battery. I got it towed to our dealer. Turns out the was a open recall for the battery cable that ends up killing the battery. So they replaced the battery and cable under warranty. I wonder how many got charged when it was related to a recall...

when you change the battery the car needs to be coded?

The cars computer charges the battery based upon how old it is and what type. When you change the battery, it will be charged like the old battery unless you tell the car it is new by coding. It is a one stop process if the new battery is the same size and type and a two step process if you change size or type.

Only the dealer can do this?
