1.) Make sure to LOCK your car so that the car shuts off all the computers.
2.) You need to drive the car so that it wams up to operating temperature, and them another half an hour to an hour to keep it charged.

Look into Kat's thread for more info about battery maintenance. A wealth of information in that thread.

We had an 2009 BMW M3 sedan come in today that only had 4,000 miles on the ODO. He was complaining about how the cars battery was dead and how BMW's are a POS because the battery drains. Gee, I wonder why. He sold the car to us and headed across the street to Audi/Porsche.
