Re: How does BMW perform the Battery Capacity Test?

Talked to them again today - they were a bit baffled when I asked if they were running the battery drain tests last night - as they said they were only charging the vehicles - I suppose they must have left the side lights and interior lights on, and maybe that drained the battery ever so slightly (e...

Re: How does BMW perform the Battery Capacity Test?

Looks like they switched cars - the one (49.5K) that was updating the time overnight, stopped, and the other one (21K) is doing the green light/plugged into the EVSE and time update thing now (and notifications windows down, doors open, side lights on)...looking at it again the last time it updated ...

It looks like BMW (at least in my area) is now enforcing the 4 year/50K mile maintenance plan is for the original buyer only and not transferable.... https://www.bmwusa.com/explore/bmw-value/bmw-maintenance/terms-and-conditions.html "... NON-TRANSFERABILITY These maintenance programs are availa...

Re: Final service visit of our maintenance plan

..... I had postponed for ~10 months having the driver airbag recall reprogramming performed until my scheduled service visit. I assumed that the system software would have been old enough by now that BimmerCode would have been updated to work with this software version. However, BMW must be contin...

So it seems if your i3 was made on or before 06/15 your remote and emobility services last for 10 years?

While reviewing my connecteddrive settings - I noticed one of our 2015 i3 REx the emobility and remote services will expire next year....while the other 2015 i3 REx will last until 2026. Out of curiosity (and wondering if I can extend the emobility and remote services on the one expiring next year) ...

Renewing Remote Services & eMobility Services?

Remote & eMobility Services are expiring in the next year for our 2015, however I do not see an option to extend them (like Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information) on the connected site. Are these services extendable, or are they trying to push folks toward (the expensive) Connected Services? In...
