Yet another Battery drain question

Hey fellas,

New here, went back 10 pages or so of the forum, didn't find similar issue.

Need help locating a battery drain in wife's X3. Last two weeks on Monday had to jump start her car, battery was almost dead. Car sat in a driveway over the weekend. If the car is driven during daily on weekdays, it is completely fine in the morning.

Went to Pep Boys , they did battery test and it is OK, although 4+ years old.

Also, I've noticed that radio panel doesn't completely turns off in the last two weeks when car is locked. The panel and clock stay on. So, is this a possible battery drain (this doesn't look right), and if yes how can I make radio turn itself off? (sorry, not in the manual, and the car is off warranty).

Also, do you recommend replacing battery anyway since it is 4+ years old?
