Battery Replacement

I woke up to a dead battery in my 2015 F150 which got me thinking, my 2015 M235 cant be too far behind. Ironically the truck is a 94R/H7 AGM battery just like the BMW. If only they came in two packs lol.

Anyway, I have the correct software and ODBII adapter to code the battery replacement in the F150. I dont have anything to code the BMW.

What are my best options? I have not really seen a DIY battery replacement thread, but have seen mentions of Carly being a good coding software, but have also seen that it cant code the battery replacement for a F22?

Just trying to plan ahead since it cant be far off. Thanks guys.

I am looking to change my battery in my 2014 M235i. 5 years seems to be the right time. I see that the OPTIMA H6 Car Battery, yellow top, seems to be a direct fit but it's a deep discharge battery and that seems counter intuitive.

What other options are there? It looks like the 61-21-7-639-053 heavy duty is discontinued and the 61-21-7-598-775 is cheaper than the OPTIMA but I have had good luck with OPTIMAs in the past.

Carly should easily take care of the coding so that is no problem.

Any wisdom is appreciated.
