    battery replacement

    Hi guys,


    One quick question that popped up after I changed my battery yesterday.

    Do we need to do a reprog for the new battery? I know it is something you need to do with an E90 but does it also apply to the E46.


    Thanks!

    No, programming for the battery is not needed for E46 3 series cars, only E9x 3 series on.....

    Reprogramming is just a dealer scam for the older cars. The most you will have to do is reset your clock. What battery did you go with?

    I went with a home brand from a speacialized battery shop in town. Works well since then and so far just had to reset my clock.
