DIY Battery registration

Hi,
Has anyone yet tried the new "Battery registration" feature of the BMWhat software?
Recent update to the iViNi-apps on my Android now shows the new feature.

My 2010 has the original battery, and I don't think it is going to survive the Winter.

My plan is to buy the BMW battery (w/ my 10% Club discount!), install it, and register the new battery myself.

Tommorow's DIY project is to replace the $68 bulb that produces the "angel eyes" feature, Right side burned out this week.

Frank

Someone (on another BMW forum) said that when he tried to register the battery, it asked for another $11 to enable this feature. It is not functional!

Last time that I tried to use BMWhat to reset the oil change service minder light, it asked for an additional $6. Instead of paying $6, I just did the reset for free by following the instructions available everywhere and I did not need any cable, OBD adapter and computer. As for the battery registration, you can still do it for free with BMWlogger.

Thanks for the advice & tips!
I had no idea there is so much interesting software available for our cars.

I'm a big fan of the software, bought it for ~55 bucks months ago. The owner/developer is really good at responding, everything I have tried work. Coding, removing codes, resetting service...etc

A $68 bulb. H8s do not cost that much. You must have been buying it form BMW. Sorry if that is the case.
