Should I keep the V on a battery tender or actually disconnect the battery?

My vote is for Battery Tender (http://batterytender.com/product_info.php?products_id=2&osCsid=afb04467313d4e4fd4ef0aa75a41ab69)
That's what I use when the V sits out the winter for 4 months in the garage.

Neither, I'll drive it, free pick-up, free 100 octane fill-up, free return delivery. I'll even wash, wax, & detail in between pick-up & delivery.

Great way to get first hand experience of future mods ;)

I've always wanted to literally stand on the gas and hammer one of these cars, I just don't have the gonads to do it to mine. J/K, I don't even like driving others cars, even when there nice ones for fear something will go wrong.

It's after midnight and I just laughed out loud!

Battery tender will keep your battery nicely topped off while you are gone. I do this on my S2000 while it's in winter hibernation because there are items that draw current even with the car off (alarm).

I leave my 09 CTS-V, or my 07 vette in storage for a month at a time, alarm set, no battery tender/minder/maintainer of any sort, and the car always starts first time I turn the key when I go pick it up.

Yes, if your battery is healthy then letting it sit for a month should be no problem at all. I would do nothing if it's only going to sit for a month.

My offer's still good. Well, it's good at my end.

Yes Gary and you can stick it in your end!
Just kidding!

Whatever happened to our new "specifically designed for the 'CTS-V" D3 lowering springs? Are you wearing any yet.
