My Ride: 2002 330ci
Yeah I didn't mean it will only last 1000 times. I was just quoting the txt from the website. I realize that it never gets discharged fully. I think it really depends on how much you use it though. I purchased my last 02' 330ci in 2007 and my battery was shot within like 2 months of owning it. So I only made it 5 years.

Also I can't imagine the cap will store energy for that long. It certainly isn't a big cap. And I had my battery out for quite some time before I got the new one in and I still had remote functionality. You sure it works like that? Just asking as my experience seems to contradict what you are saying. I figured it was non-volatile.
