Re: Setting Departure Times Issues

In the car itself - the App barely works for up-to-date displayed info, and never works to send settings.

Setting Departure Times Issues

Ok, how does the Departure Time menu and settings work. The manual is really weak in this area. I have set: Charge now Preconditioning Departure Time 1 8:20, Mon, Wed - and it works as advertised I would like to set a Departure Time 2 for Friday, and Departure time 3 for Saturday, but cannot. Depart...

Re: Battery issue

What AlohaArt said ;) Plus try charging it fully, with pre-conditioning/departure time set, and see what range is displayed once pre-conditioning has finished, right when you unplug and first get in the car, and it hasn't time to re-adjust to outside temp, etc. If I set pre-conditioning/departure ti...

Re: Switching Charging Current

You might also check the simplest first - that the double-pole breaker in your electrical panel for the new 240 v charger is actually in the "on" position, and whatever indicator light on your new charge station is showing power to it,

Re: Switching Charging Current

Can you give more details on what is happening? Screen should show: Level 1 Charging (120v) Level 2 Charging (240v) You should be able to set reduced or max for each level. The car recognizes which cable you plug in, 120v or 240v, and then charges accordingly. A 120 volt cable has one 120v hot wire,...

Re: Is the maintenance plan worth $600?

BMW indicates oil and filter change every 12 months on the Rex. If you are still under factory warranty, I'd stick with that, as you could have a warranty claim denied if you aren't following the proscribed maintenance. Out of warranty, judge it on use, but for me, I will be sticking to the one year...

Re: Is the maintenance plan worth $600?

SaveOurPlanet, since you are not covered by a service plan, try checking with a local independent service shop that specializes in BMW's, and see what their rates are for similar service. That would give you a ruler to gauge if the BMW prices are "market" or inflated. Bavarian Motors in At...

Re: REX Acoustic sound dampening

Even at surface-street speeds, I can barely hear the Rex engine when it is on in my 2015. Wonder if, in the later models with the larger battery capacity, they have increased the Rex rev's, to provide more "juice" while running?

Re: Unexpected, very powerful, acceleration surge BMW i3

A few people have reported their i3 suddenly "accelerating". Turned out in cases reported, that If the regenerative braking system was operating and the car made a sharp turn, or hit a pothole or a bump, causing the wheels to lose traction, the traction control would disengage the regen to...
