Phone numbers come from your contact list on your phone. Radio stations and seat settings, maybe not. But the battery will need to be programed to the car. It's part of the new procedure on BMW's starting in 2006, helping withe the charging. Check your owners manual if you don't believe me. Any dealer or BMW independent garage will be able to do it for you once you have the new one installed.

Seriously? You need to program the battery to the car? That's ridiculous. Now knowing this, I'm not sure this will work, but you can buy a cigarette lighter socket information saver device that attaches to a 9 volt battery. I believe Bavarian Autosport sells one.

I think I'll stick with my E39.
