Not sure if there is any truth to this. I'm sure i'll have to re-calibrate the one touch on my windows and some settings that would be reset on the radio and whatnot. (clock, date, etc)
I was told the dealer would have to set the max charge on the battery and has to do other stuff that I wouldn't be able too.
(I thought only the 2006+ 3 series needed battery registration) - Mines an 04.

any truth to this ?

Use a battery tender, so you don't have to disconnect the battery
