That's just the BS reason the BMW techs have been told to dish out. I have not had any problems with my 2011 335is either, but admittedly, my car does not have the alarm system installed which I feel is the root cause for this issue.

For some reason, my wife's '08 535xi does not go to sleep properly (even when locked) and the battery drains with the car sitting in the garage. This issue surfaced very early in our ownership, and if you have not had any problems so far, there is a good chance that you won't.

But, to be on the safe side, keep a battery tender on the battery to keep it fully charged when you are not going to drive it for a couple of days.
