Wish I could help. I would recommend a trickle charger but you said that was not an option.

Can you get someone to start the car periodically?

Bilstein suspension

The stock shocks were horrible on the earlier model year E9x with sport suspension. Along with equally awful Bridgestone RFTs they made the suspension way too harsh.

I have 18" rims sport suspension and Conti DWS tires. The car is very quiet as quiet if not quieter than my Lexus SC300 was.
