Replacing the AGM Battery

Hello Folks

I'm quite interested to know how easy it is to replace the AGM battery in the MINI, and does it need coding? Some makes like Audi, Volkswagen need new batteries coded or you'll get an error. Searched the forum and I can't seem to find any information about battery coding.

Can we do this using ESYS or are we at the mercy of dealers charging us a bomb for it?
The battery price is quite reasonable if we source it ourselves.

I've disconnected ours a couple of times and had no other issues. other than the trip going to zero. If worried connect a 12v power supply to the leads while swapping them over. My CTEK battery charger has a 12v supply facility. I'm sure others do the same.
