Iv always used a thick piece of rug under each tire, KEEP IN MIND, if the rug gets wet someway somehow, the moisture will damage your tires more then having it sitting on concrete ;)

would plastic garage tiles do the trick? hehe

For a 135i, is it OK to leave the battery disconnected?
1. I do not have access to an electric plug in the storage area
2. Can it drain all the ECM memory???, so will the car start next spring???
3. Will a small solar (powered by the neon lights of the inside garage) be sufficient to keep the battery charge?

Yes you can leave it disconnected without any harm. Worst case, you'll loose your radio presets and/or memory seat settings.

Ok, thanks for the fast reply.:)

One other tip. What I use to do with my E30 M3 in my garage was put down a layer of the black roofing tar paper on the concrete floor. Apparent it's a great barrier and it's cheap from Home Depot or similar.

Well someone told me that a dead battery can harm one of the main ECM... so I just bought a quick solar charger @ Canadian Tire and installed it on the roof, my car is parked right underneath the lights...Thanks for your input gents.
