Djantlive to your point, I had the parasitic test down right after shutting car down so you make an excellent point on why it was probably so high. I forget that the car does a series of things before it goes completely off. That would likely explain when I personally did the test why it was 8 amps. I wish I knew how the dealer did it but regardless they replaced the battery. Sadly, I won't know what the effects of changing out the battery are until next year. Tires are so bald (metal is starting to come through) I ended up leaving it at dealer until my new shoes come in. Also picked up a battery tender since I don't drive very far to fully charge battery so hopefully this is all the car needs.
