Where to get software patch for REx sustain charge to 75%

Thu Apr 20, 2017 6:10 am

After reading this thread viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4452 I wanted to start a new topic on where to get the software patch to reprogram a 2015 REx so that I can control when the REx comes on and also make full use of the 2.4 gal tank. I'm not much of a programming guy so I'm interested in the $150 patch as mentioned in Bob Wilson's link. I thought about PM'ing Bob but maybe others are interested too so I decided to start a new thread. If this is inappropiate then maybe somebody can PM me.
When I finally get my i3 I want to install the software patch so I can drive it home :)

Thanks Jeff
So you plug the USB into your car? Where's the port for that?

Does this modification now include unlocking the full gasoline tank capacity? I don't believe earlier versions did.

As of December, it did not include the gas tank capacity hack. I would recommend contacting them directly.

FYI, my last trip to the service department, BMW loaded new software that wiped out the patch. But it was easy to reapply.
