    Hi, Car is draining from battery when locked and not running. Approx 10 amps / hour. So flat over night. Pulling the fuses hasn't stopped it. Are there things that the 645 from 2004 (e63) are famous for causing this? Also other e63 owners a quick question; When you try to open the boot...

    I have a 2009 120d Convertible. The battery is completely flat and so I am unable to open the boot or the bonnet to access the battery or to recharge it. Is it feasible to provide temporary power via the cigarette lighter to enable the boot and the bonnet to operate.
