Suggestions welcomed.

You can always just unplug the battery and bring it indoors close to an outlet. As per the suggestion to start the car every week or so, if you’re not going to drive it then its actual worse than just leaving it.

Before I stored it I added stabilizer to the fuel and had bmw change the oil but not add the last half litter of oil as I will pour it in come April or May right before I start the car. The logic behind this is that cold starts are where the most wear occurs.
