For the first six months of my ownership I only used the REx for about 10% of my mileage but recently I have some family stuff going on 200 miles away so for a few weeks I'm doing big mileage and probably using the REx for about 50% of my driving but it copes just fi...

Re: REx "quality" recall and s/w update

Anyone else had this recall? When my car was with my dealer about a month ago (having charging issue looked at for the n'th time) they mentioned this spline update was on the computer and that they'd do it at the same time. They rang me back later to say that they didn't have the tooling but would ...

Re: Media screen going blank

The jungle telegraph stuff is starting get on my nerves. BMW UK have no record of any remote services issues on the internal support system At least they told you that :) I sent my dealer an email on Monday telling them about me experiencing this issue and asking if there was a fix and never even g...

Re: NAVIGATION SWITCHES ON AND OFF

Hi Kirp,

Seems this is a new problem that a few of us are experiencing.

Check this thread out : http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1748

There's also a post in the i3 facebook group discussing the same thing.

Re: Media screen going blank

I experienced this problem during my commute this morning. Crashed 4 times in about 15 mins, black screen and then an auto reset/back to the BMWi loading screen.

Re: Weather change... reduced range

So the headlights, wipers and aircon in total consumed 20 miles of range over a 2 hour period... Yep, and we can expect that range to drop further when winter really sets in. On Sunday night I drove the 200'ish miles back from parents which is something I've already done several times in my i3 and ...

Re: Delayed Charging mode.

Anyone know what a 'LIM control unit' is ? That's what they replaced on my car last week in an attempt to fix this problem but unfortunately it didn't work and I've only had one night since where it charged without error.
