100Ah battery instead of 70Ah? 323ci e46 year2000

Hi guys,

I'm in need of changing my car battery and it says in the manual that it takes 12V 70Ah. But is it ok to put an 12V 100Ah in the car anyway? Since this was the only one they got in the store for the moment. Thanks!

Yes, it is perfectly safe. The 100Ah battery has more electricity stored in it, so it will take longer to run it flat.
