A few times per week I'll drive home at lunch and go for a couple miles run, and sometimes take the long way back to the office again.
Prepare for a knock on your door from the "Unfavorable Driver Behavior" BMW Polizei. Shame on you!

Your battery is being "abused" according to BMW NA...THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES for your behavior. Check Nordic_Kats threads (she's free on bail).
