Andrew, thanks for that.
I will add that I'm not planning on just leaving the car for 5 months, I will start it up every 2 or 3 weeks and take it out for a 10 - 15 minute run every 3 - 4 weeks. We don't really get any snow in the UK, but after a frost there is salt on the roads, so it won't be driven until we've had several showers to wash away the salt.
The battery conditioner is plugged into the cigar lighter with the battery connected as normal. Is it better to remove the battery? I didn't last year and it survived by only being started every 2 to 3 weeks without a conditioner.
T1f, I would ship it to CA for the winter as long as I could go too, but as it's a euro model it probably wouldn't pass any of the US tests.
