Yeah I'm gonna try to run it every day until we move. Then I can just disconnect the battery and maybe charge it when I need to run the car.

Maybe use a slow/trickle charger or something?

That's a hell of a charger. I'll maybe try the cheap one and see how it works.

Something is up...

I ran/drove the car on Tuesday for a while after jumping it. It should have started up just fine yesterday but it was even more dead than the day before. Alternator? Hmmm well maybe not since all electronics work fine when the car is running. If the alt was bad then there would be nothing. The battery is brand new. Unless there's an open circuit or some shit draining the battery.

Fuuuuck this car.

Went ahead and got me a float charger. I'll let you know how it works out.

Revisiting the leaking oil thing...

Since I finally have a driveway, I plan to work on this soon. Reading online, they say to replace the valve cover gasket and rubber grommets.

Valve cover gasket set: http://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-val ... 1120030496
They say you need 15x of these too: http://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-val ... 1121437395

RTV sealant is used?

People talk about it here: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/sh ... ver-gasket

A similar DIY (not my engine): http://www.dvatp.com/bmw/valve_cover_gasket/
M54 DIY video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-TLgNCmTlY

Shall I replace the spark plugs while I'm at it? As far as I know they've never been replaced. I've got the M54 engine.

Thanks dawg!
