Any one have a clue on if it affects more than my radio needing a code thats possibly in the trunk liner? Im considering buying a memory saver to keep the codes but if i dont need it i dont but does it affect the other electronics? I have a 2.5 liter 2010 beetle please help. If it helps autozone said the battery requires professional installation.

Battery installation does not require a professional; It can take some time and figuring out where all the bolts and covers go, how they come off, etc. The battery can be a tight fit and tipping it on one end; can help you get it out, as it partially, hides under the front fender.

As to the code for the radio, I've had it go both ways; sometimes disconnecting the battery does not require the code to be put in to unlock it and other times it has been a issue.

Again, seems to be the luck of the draw; i've had it go, both ways. Most of the time; I have had no issues; when, I have done programming with things or the head unit is removed, then it seems the radio safe mode pops up.

on my experience, it depends on how long the battery was removed and replaced (like for charging it or so) but a quick swap did not even ask me for radio code. i just upgraded to a better battery. i have 2.0 2014, not sure if that makes a difference.

In general I don't really have a problem with safe mode for the stereo but if I make major changes to the vehicle, it can pop up and require the input of the code, to restore functionality.

If safe mode pops up; sometimes if I just cycle the power button a number of times it will go away.
