Great thread!

I'd add simply to buy a battery tender when getting this car, especially if you drive it infrequently. The electronics on these cars drain the battery faster, and the alternator disengages when the engine is under load.

I hook mine up to the trunk, but the hood point also works. My car is 7 years old, and I'm still on the original battery.

Yea apparently it's more if you're driving an E90 which is weird cuz I'd figure M3 coupes would be more expensive to insure?

I appreciate the wisdom of Theodore. It's not just the information. It's also the tone: what to worry about and, equally important, what NOT to worry about. Thank you, sir.

This needed to be a Sticky ages ago. Moderators, what are you waiting for?

Oh right, OP isn't a paying vendor.
