@ Sir Galahad,
Thanks for the great technical information. Prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure.

@ Hot Ice:
Thanks for the tidbit about the 1 hour/day driving. Funny how the SA at BMW really didn't want to point blank impart that little gem; not that it matters - I used to drive 2-3 hours a day in heavy traffic and I don't miss it a bit. It is interesting on both the Deltran and CTEK sites, Deltran indicates they are the manufacturer of the BMW branded charger, yet CTEK indicates that BMW uses their chargers.

I'm kind of a pushover for all the pretty lights on the CTEK unit. This would be a much easier decision if there were just an iPad app for it.
If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.
