    I hesitate to jump any modern car with all the electronics & marginal alternators. Can't you just give the battery a charge with one of those chargers that plug in thru the lighter socket.

    As previously recommended, it is far better to charge the battery, rather than jump start, to lessen the strain on the alternator. There are several threads from Ferrari Techs advising against jump starting here. One time is probably okay, but not something you should do regularly.
