Yes, dealer wanted 303CAD

Other stores here in Canada (Canadian Tire and Parts Source) wanted between 240-260 CAD for the same model as the dealer , 90-92ah).

Lower model, 80ah, which would also suffice was 220-230 CAD, so I could have gone for that.

Non-AGM models were 150-180, but I never wanted to change the type. It even says on the OEM battery not to change it.

So, after tax, I ended up saving about $80 compared to dealer price.

Yogi - Just an FYI. Carly for iOS received an updated today. It specifically noted that the battery registration was "completely overhauled". If android received the same update, might be worth re-registering your battery to its full capacity.

Hi Sam, thanks for the info. Not sure if I should do it or just leave it as is. 90 vs 92 is a small difference , if they even added this option...

For now, I am perplexed at my other issue / thread i started. Brand new battery and discharge warnings. Mind you it has been extremely cold here, so i attribute everything to that and hope everything is good....

I would register it to the correct capacity is possible. I went through your other thread. The car might have some way of thinking the battery cant get back to 92ah. Eitherway, its only been a month, battery is still new, so its worth a try atleast.

Thanks again for the help everyone. These two threads have been priceless. And also one about Carly a while ago, that is where I first learned about Carly.

Did you end up re-registering the battery after Carly update? Last week it had an update that said 'battery registration overhauled'. Yesterday morning it had another update that said the same thing.

You can update the app first, then turn on expert mode and connect to the adapter and it will update the adapter. Try the test again see what you get.

I updated the app, connected the same way I have before and I see the new interface, BUT I do not see a 92AH option under change battery type.

So I left it as is. Update the adapter??

BTW. I am sorta pissed off. I already spent $70 on the app and I just tried coding to shut off legal disclaimer and that is another 15 Euros!!!??? WHAT???
When I registered the battery, I coded the seat-belt reminder "for free". But "idrive coding" is 15 Euros? What???

I really doubt there's going to be a 92Ah setting, when there's already a 90. Most of the coded options are capacities spaced much farther apart than that. 2Ah is not going to make any difference to the way the car systems operate. Just leave it.

Re-registering will tell the car that you just replaced the battery again. For what it's worth, the car logs every time, and the odometer reading when it was done. On E90s it appeared that there was only 4 or 5 data slots to remember registrations on the lifetime of the car. I'm not sure what happens with you do it the N+1 time - never needed to know.

When I did this stuff on my E90, there were only 4-5 capacities with the lowest being 60 or 70 Ah. Some googling would probably reveal answers for the F10. There's only a couple of options to select, and the options are a function of the car, not the coding software.

The IMO TL;DR - if you took out a 90Ah AGM and installed a "92"Ah AGM, do the registration and forget about trying to code.
