that's helpful to know because i live less than a mile from work,and typically only drive 4 or 5k a year.i guess i'll just have to drive this car more,which will be a lot of fun,and possibly replace batteries more than usual.it makes sense in a way,the m3 has a lot of electronic functions,and therefore probably has a high battery drain.
