Battery OEM vs Odyssey

About to purchase a New Battery from BMW 61-21-2-353-12 92ah 850 CCA
.

Should I buy or get the Odyssey 49-950 Group or 94R-850?

.
All (3) are the same price & I can Code & Register the Battery myself.


Thoughts?

OK - Well for all those NOT interested

I ended up purchasing a 92ah 850 CCA BMW Battery from the dealer.
.
using the Foxwell 510 I registered the battery -- not needing to Code since the New battery was the same Old -- 92 ah and Type AGM were all the same.
.
.
Only issue I had was the Foxwell cable must have a short as it took several tries as the screen would "white out" in the middle of programing. I moved the cable around and it would force the screen to reset. I have stored the scanner in it's storage bag in the house -- just feels like cheap crap.

FWIW -- Looking into icarsoft BMM v3.0 to replace the Foxwell that I have had since 2016. I am familure with the icarsoft as I have one for the wife's MB and the hardware is or at least feels superior.
