Too bad it wasn't a VW. They have engineered their BCMs to monitor the battery voltage and automagically switch the radio off (in accessories or key off/radio power button override mode) when it drops to a certain voltage, to save the battery from getting too flat and not being able to start the car. Depending on the volume level is how long you get out of it before it turns off. Awesome German engineering. Shame about their DSGs, though... :P
