Great. . Now you just have to check if the alternators are capable of charging the batteries satisfactorily.

Your new battery might take a little longer to charge fully, but, 3AH don't make a difference anyway. All you need to check is that if the old M800 alternator is actually giving good amps at Idle. Nevertheless, it was a good decision to switch battery from a less run car to a frequently run car as your battery will be in optimum condition always.
