Well that's the thing, per the warranty booklet, I am just into the problem area. As I wrote here, my "per trip" commute is just less than 10 miles at about 9.7 miles. I still think this should be enough as I never had a problem with my old car and it's old battery in the four years prior with the same commute.

I am rather blown away that in two years I am having these kinds of problems. I am really hoping this has something to do with the battery cable recall. I just got my letter a little bit ago but haven't had time to go in yet. Although I somehow think it's probably more due to BMW's Brake Energy Regeneration systems which I discussed here. I wish I could just turn that system off and let it charge normally.
