Any number of things could drain your battery other than the clock, a.o.
- Trunk, hood, or interior light or glove box light that is staying on when the engine is OFF
- Aftermarket radios, CD players, amplifiers, cell phone chargers etc. etc.
- Electric seat motors and electric antennae motors that are stuck in the ON position
- Relays or components under the hood that are ON or running with the engine OFF - for instance electric cooling fan motors, anti lock brake pump motors, air ride suspension pump motors
A drip charger may fix this, but may also cause a fire, so I decided to stay away from them.
I always simply pop the front hood of my 328 and pull the red connector plug on the left hand side. That basically disconnects the car from the battery without any hassle. Before you go driving simply pop it back in, adjust your clock to the right time and you're all set to go.
Doesn't the 308 have something similar?
A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister F.
