I grabbed an Everstart H6 AGM from Walmart @ $169 and installed it with my fresh Aliexpress cloth cover. Coded her in with OBD11 and thats about it for today. I might be installing a trailer harness soon, which will be a chore.

Got a link for that battery cover? I asked at the dealer and when even the parts guy laughs at how expensive it is (over $100CAD)....you take a pass on that.

I get into more detail in my facelift BCM retrofit thread... but retrofitted facelift BCM PN 5Q0 937 084 CG (software version 5Q0 937 084 DD) into my the TDi. Had a few easy things to fix that I messed up when transferring pre-facelift coding/adaptations to facelift adaptations (only, no coding).

I set a light function for the right rear blinker to "always 100%" instead of "not active."
I set wiper fluid level sensor to "installed" instead of "not installed," hmm, simple retrofit (along with brake pad wear sensor).
I set ENG153700-ENG154803-Steering Column Switch-Verbauort_Lenkstockschalter to LIN, instead of CAN
- This caused steering column stalks to not work, along with wiper fault in vehicle status page/dash

Anyway, facelift BCM is installed, and fault code free!!! My original (retrofitted higline) BCM wasn't even fault free. That was something I screwed up, of course, haha. I've got 30 color ambient coded. Lights are not installed but AID/Infotainment color is working. Color by driving profile is working, but I need to get the button on screen to set color to coupled/not-coupled to driving profiles.

Pictures of color settings, and my tail light screw up. Phone washed out the color selections but colors in the middle get very blue, then through the purples to yellow, orange, red (the picture looks light blue, white, gray-ish). These pics were before I fixed my adaptation mistakes.
