UPGRADE from a 94Ah to 120Ah in UK

It will be interesting to know if any i3 enthusiast has Upgraded their 94Ah battery to 120Ah in the UK.
If so what are the problems, and the final cost of conversion if carried out professionally or by BMW dealer.

(assuming that the old good battery can be traded in for recycling?)
