The dealer says that it's the battery. And further, they said that the Z4 needs to be started every 2 days or the car won't start. This is what they told my cousin. I'm not buying this crock. Sounds like a bad altinator. Any thoughts? Is this a typical problem with the Z4?
Thanks!

The car prob sat on the lot too long and now the battery is drained. Tjios happens quite a bit. Its covered under warranty. They should charge or replace it if necessary and test the charging system for free.
