Hey guys, it's been a while! The last school year kept me super busy, and I ended up packing the 'vert away in a storage facility since it wasn't being used for commuting purposes (just bought another vehicle for that!). So here's the scoop. I entrusted my parents with the task of exercising my car every week or so while I was gone. But my mom can't drive stick and my dad has a bum left ankle (go figure), so it wasn't even started. I came home for winter break to a dead battery, and in recharging it several times, killed the alternator. Figured that out when it died in the middle of an intersection. Towed it to Jack's Auto & Aero (for those of you who are familiar with the area and our resident Bimmer genius), and he fixed it up, no problem. At his recommendation, I disconnected the battery upon packing the car away at the end of December, and covered it up in the facility to survive the winter. Now, six months later, I guess my greatest fear is rolling up the garage door to find a big heap of car that has rotted away to nothing. Yes, I know I'm being dramatic, but is there anything to be wary of? I just bought a heavy duty portable jump starter/battery charger, but as for the unseen items, should I do anything like siphon the gas out and replace it with a fresh batch? Replace the oil? Get new ignition wires (haha)? Has anyone ever dealt with a similar situation? I'm open to any advice, as usual!
