2008 E60 M5 Battery Replacement

Replaced mine with Exide Edge L5/49/H8 Auto AGM Battery, registered it with DIS. Before I did so, I queried the replacement history and noted that the shop that replaced it 3 years ago did not register my previous battery!

probably a stupid question but still...what is the point of these BMW cars and registering a battery? Any other make you run to Pep Boys and throw a new one in and done.

The charging system is "intelligent" but not smart enough to tell that it's a new battery - which has different charging needs that an older one.

This is what happens when you get a bunch of new hires in design who grew up believing that computers are the answer to everything. they replace analog systems with digital and our misery index climbs.

To each his own, but why take it to the dealer if you can do it better and have the means and knowledge to do it yourself?

Used ISTA-D to register but it still shows 90AH
Is it that important to change it to 95AH?
I didn't install ISTA-P of course. Anyone have instructions for INPA?

Thanks OP for the DIY!!
