Just run the car short before you leave and make sure it's on temperature.
This should put a good oil film on all the engine parts.
You could loan a small charger to continious charge the battery from your garage, I think this is better because of all the electronics in the car. The device should keep the battery healthy but I don't know the English translation
After you get back just start the car but do NOT rev it. let it run idle for a while.
You can hear the ticking in the head for a while because of the hydraulic lifters but this should disappear in less than a miniute or so, no harm done.
Make sure that you do not put any load on the engine for at least a minute to let the oil go thru the engine and the bearings.
You could disconnect the battery but I am not sure if there are any electronics using a small battery which could drain.
What about the electronics? There is no danger...Definitely disconnect the battery as it will definitely be dead when you return.quote:
