Similar problem

Yesterday, for the first time, the yellow "low battery" icon went on but has not reappeared. Given the cold snap we have had in the DC area, combined with my not driving the car for several days I would not be surprised by the battery being low.

It's time for me to buy a battery charger and am leaning toward the CTEK after reading posts on this forum. My question is whether to buy the 7200 model ($92) or just the 3300 model ($56). Is the 7200 model overkill?

BTW, I agree with all of the past comments about how ridiculous it is to spend $50K + on a BMW, then have to worry about the battery going because your daily trips are too short. The price we pay for driving a Bimmer.... Kind of like keeping a mistress.
