Re: Do they really honor the 8/100,000 mile battery warranty? In our case YES!!

Talked to the service manager yesterday I asked him about getting the results of the capacity report; he replied that our report was different than all others he has seen.

I am going to ask them if I can see the full capacity report, AND do we get a brand new 8/100,000 warranty for the new batteries? If you can think of any more questions I should be asking BMW, please let me know.

Re: Phoenix 2014 i3 in shop for battery health check.

Hi i know i am new here, but after reading your post i have to ask you this one overlooked question, are you still charging your battery everyday with the included level 1 charger?
