Re: Trip meter / odometer mile change discrepancy.

I think it is rounding ! Let’s say your trip started when it was 29,349.4 (displayed as 29,349) That would move to 29,350 when your trip said 0.6 etc etc... You can figure out the exact distance on the odometer by looking at the trip. So if the odo changed when the trip said 0.7, the odometer was at...

Re: Next model after 120ah i3

At my local BMW dealer last week, I mentioned to the service agent that I was considering changing my 94ah REX for the new 120ah model, which here in the UK no longer has the REX option. She said that she had heard BMW is phasing out the REX altogether in 2019 and that the 120ah is a stop gap while...

Re: Future owner complete newbie needs pre-purchase info.

Thanks for the input! Given two identical-ish 2016s for the same price, which is better? 13K miles vs 37K? Or a five year drivetrain warranty on the 37K one from a BMW dealer who has "certified" it? I'm thinking there's not really much of a drivetrain, and the 8 year battery warranty outl...

Re: Chargemaster or Podpoint home charger in the UK

bobbydazzler, that’s fair. I had the same issue - they could only install 2 weeks after I had my i3. So just used 3 pin for 2 weeks which was fine, took about 10 hours to charge. I had to buy a very heavy duty 20m extension lead to cope as a “normal” domestic one kept tripping / overheating. Not sur...

Re: Future owner complete newbie needs pre-purchase info.

Khigh, ReX is absolutely the way to go ! Brilliant having a “get out of jail free” card. “I see you can hack the REX to maintain current capacity”. So you know, it’s not a hack. All you need to do when below 70% charge (could be 75%) is turn it on and it “holds” the charge where it is. It automatica...

Re: Newbie Question - Finding miles used with ReX !

Thanks for all the comments. The web ConnectedDrive (vs the App) was the perfect solution.

It would have been years before I worked that out.

What a brilliant forum !

Newbie Question - Finding miles used with ReX !

Hi Folks, Still loving it, week 4. Trying to embrace the EV philosophy by not using the ReX (only in emergency). Used it a couple of times - completely justifying it and great to have the “get out of jail for free” card. However I would like to know how many miles the ReX has been used. How do I do ...

Re: Connected App in UK

Patni1, This is a much bigger question. I would evaluate whether you go Android or Apple IOS on many more things than the BMW connected app. I am Apple, works fine. I suspect the Android version is exactly the same... You are about to make a life changing decision :D - go Apple where everything just...
