In my e38 the dealer unscrewed the holes in the battery and never recapped it. I had to buy a new one because the battery was destroyed (luckily it somehow didn't do any noticable damage to the trunk). That battery lasted about 7 years before this happened. In my e39 I had to replace the battery within a few months of ownership. I don't plan on every checking the fluid levels.... -Steve
