Angry My Battery Is Draining...

SO... When I got my car it just had a new battery put in it. When I tried to start it to unload it from the trailer it wouldn't start after a 6 and a half hour drive. Anyone know of any misterious power drainers that I could check.? I'd really be upset if this M3 comes home tommorow and I can't do anything wit hit because I have to charge the battery every time I drive it. any help would be great. Thanks

Trunk light, grounded wires, bad alternator, could be a combination of a lot of things. Jeez man, one of these days you're going to catch a break . . . I hope

Try letting your car run on your driveway for like 20 mins, then try to start it, or drive it around the block for a while, it might just need to fully charge up. If its not charging properly and your battery really is new, and hasnt been sitting from whereever you got it for like 2 years, check grounds before you buy an alternator. Luckily alternators are pretty easy to install on e36's.

Thanks guys I just felt it weird. I did catch a small break believe it or not. My padre went to the title office yesterday to try and title the car because3 we hadn't been able to make cotinuity with the ownership. So we are titling it as an Assembled Vehicle.. thank god it is almost over.. I'm calling the body man up today. I suppose I'll end up driving it illegally to graduation hahaha.
