Thanks for links! Having bought four new BMWs from the local dealer and considering a new 3-er wagon one hopes they'll replace the battery under the factory warranty..

We have an MX-5 that sits on my lift for up to three months at time over winters; never had an issue from its battery. In 25 years of driving other than my first used car the only battery I've had fail is a Honda CR-V at four years old - it acted up and totally died within three days. $109 and ten mins DIY to replace.

The guy from Buckhead went to Global Imports - worst dealership in the Metro area by far. Likely they both charged him for a new battery and submitted a warranty claim to BMW. Terrible place; I had a good SA there once but these days won't set foot in the place. Heard too many horror stories.
