enjoytheride is on a distinguished road
Had a 2010 35d (just updated to a 2014 f15 40d in March) Had two batteries in 4 years. Listen next to the bonnet when you turn the car off, there's plenty happening. This continues for some time. Every time you open a door (any door) the car activates ready to start. So when you clean the car and open and close doors it just puts constant load on the battery. Only solution is to put a charger on it. When I drove short distances over a week the battery ran down so I was in the habit of charging the battery every couple of days. New model totally different situation.
