Hi guys, I'm thinking of storing away my car for a couple of months and my question is, are there steps to do before i disconnect the battery? Is it true that i have to wait for 20 to 30 mins after turning off the engine before i disconnect the battery and also, wait again after connecting before starting?...I don't know what is the reason for this but if anyone out there can help me out i would appreciate it very much....Thanks for reading thisn post.

You might be thinking of this, which is limited to the 9/00 and newer E38s with the MKIII NAV system. However, people have taken the position that waiting to disconnect the battery until after the NAV light on the drive turns off is probably worth doing, just in case.
