2002 BMW M5 Owner Comments

Unknown battery drain causes premature failure of battery and more than average replacement intervals - every two years as opposed to 5-7 yrs. Car will not start if idle for 24-48 hours. I would like to file a claim for the charging system and associated equipment for any BMW M5 (E39) built between 2000-2003.
