I drive about 50-60 km daily to go to work, which I assume is enough to keep the system charged. I didn't leave anything on.
Talked to service and the car is going in next week. They seem to think that it is related to the cold spell we have been having, but it all started when the weather was really warm last week. Hopefully, it's only a bad battery.

Has anyone experienced anything similar? Not something I would expect from a brand new car with barely 2K on the odometer.
had the same problem in my E90
ended up being a recall on all E90 LCI models batteries
