  1. BMW Diesel Owners & Enthusiasts
    Hello all, going nuts here. Recently purchased a new battery (Autocraft H8-AGM, 95Ah) to replace the original BMW 90 Ah, AGM battery. I thought I had what I needed to register the battery, but I'm doing something wrong or missing a step. I began with my Foxwell NT510 Elite, but I can't figure...
  2. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Following a storm found the rear window of my 2003 Z4 shattered and water collected in the battery well and top motor well. Had a AutoZone Duralast Platinum H6-AGM which was near end of life. Amp was ruined, battery died, required jump start. Had no issues when the Duralast was replaced (no...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Time for a new battery in my 98 Z3. The PO put in a new BMW battery just before I bought it 5 years ago. I want to replace it with something other than the glorified lawn mower battery that BMW sells. Looking in the forums I see that the battery replacement and type is registered in the...

    I see a number of references about the need to register a new battery. What equipment is required to access this information and do the registration? Is this something I can buy without it being outrageously expensive? Thanks for any insights/help. Todd inMA 2007 335xi - 133k miles
  5. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So when I go to check the VIN of the BMW I've recently bought, I either get 'this is not a valid VIN' or a car which is much younger than mine. I know that the car was originally an E36 325i (1996) and now has a lot of E36 M3 parts including an engine, but surely this isn't a factor. Some sites...
  6. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Ladies & Gentlemen, Did anyone succeeded to register a new battery on F10 N55 engine ? I am not talking theories here, I spent a humongous amount of time to get rid of the nasty 'replace battery' message' with no luck. I replaced the battery with the same OEM specs battery was in it, so no...

    Does anyone have a programmer for a battery replacement and possible software update if current version is out of date? I am in North Dallas and refuse to pay the Dealership in Plano anymore money! I am willing to pay for it just not Stealership!! Prices Thank you Bobby

    I plan on buying a BMW X3 28i with PCD pickup and then travel back to Oregon. If I buy from an out of state dealer over the internet, how do i get tags and plates for the car when I pick it up? Who handles this? Do i get a temp SC registration until i get back to Oregon? Does PCD provide...

    On many of the higher end BMW's (M3, 5 series and up) some of the insurance companies are now requiring the vehicle either be briught to one of their office so the cehicle can be viewed and photos taken, OR a copy of the Purchase Agreement from the dealer be faxed to them. A word of caution...

  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    We had our car made in Germany and imported to the Philippines. I didn't realise that one could register to receive notices directly from BMW for any recalls or other notifications. Having purchased a Euro vehicle and living in Asia, can someone advise where I should go to do this? BMW Germany?
