Never, EVER, EVER let the battery on a modern car go flat. All sorts of weird shit can happen and you will find yourself paying a dealer to sort out the mess.

Yup.
One of the more memorable instances was when my 360 Modena battery went flat and there was no way to get into the car. Not even the bloody door lock works with the key. I had to jack the car up, remove the under tray and then use a power pack to power up the car from the starter motor (from memory). Then the stupid computer had to be reset *sigh*
Needless to say it only went flat the once :p

Mine's permanently on a trickle charger - battery is always good to go.

If you were here in Adelaide I could have helped with the fault codes as I have all the ECU software / hardware / manuals / spare lotus leads.

They call Ferrari assist and wait 4hrs for somebody to tow it to the dealer. Luckily for me it was at home in my garage and I had all the required tools  so I did it myself.
