Come over here and I'll do it for $900. I bought a new battery for under $200 (same rating as OEM) and got my coded.

These BMW's have had the same feature since the E65 or E60. You guys really think that they are all running OEM batteries? No. Heck, most of them probably didn't get the battery adaptation reset either and they are fine.
