electrical issues 2000 e320

i've been having electrical issues for about 2 years. last year i changed the battery and got good results only for a matter of weeks. the car will not hold a charge longer than 2-3 days, and now that its cold outside, its more like 18 hours. i feel like it is losing power somewhere while the car is turned off. i recently pulled out the bulbs from the trunk and glove compartment. has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing? does anyone have any ideas of how to check if something is consuming the power when it shouldn't?
also, maybe its an alternator issue?

Please post this on the W210 forum (native forum for your car). Something is not "going to sleep) when the car is off and I'd bet money once you find the culprit all will be well again.
