Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty

Big if is that whether their diagnosis will qualify battery replacement. Some have said, software update unlocks the reserve battery increasing the overall capacity. Regardless the warranty, most of i3 owners will be willing to pay out of pocket to get an upgrade. Maybe BMW consider this strategy mi...

Re: How often long should I run Rex?

I picked six months without any scientific facts. Is six months a good interval? I had issues with rex, dealership asked to run it once a month long enough that gas is recycled within 3 months. I have been practicing that for a year so far no issue except there is that feeling of guilt for pollutin...

Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty

bitttersweet. There were folks reporting last year that a previous version of ISTA allowed to affect the kap. wonder if this is what they did? I would keep checking to see if the kap stays the same.

Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty

Just spoke with the shop foreman - My car got a software update. Supposedly it's like your iphone.. the dealer updates it, but even they are in the dark as to what is in the update. So I guess it really is magic that batt kappa max used to say 13.2 and now it says 16.2. Seems shady to me. Imagine y...

Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty

New user here. Love my 14 REX, aside from this battery degradation thing. Here's my story: I got my car around this time last year. I'd get around 75 miles of range on battery-only power for the first 7-8 months of ownership. Then I never got more than 65 miles. Chalked it up to cooler temps in the...

Re: Getting unhappy with fuel cover

Had the same issue but it was replaced under warranty. A month later BMW sent a letter stating the warranty on FUEL SENSOR is extended to 10 years.

This is such a common problem, BMW should address it at no cost, maybe check with them before taking the DIY route!
