High speed increases consumption, reduces range and requires more charging stops, but low speed adds muc...

Re: Send destination to the car

BMW customer centre called and said that ’Send to car’ will only work if the car is equipped with ‘6AK ConnectedDrive Services’ and I did not purchase the three year subscription for SEK 3400 (EUR 360). Had I purchased this module I would see ‘My Services’ in the ConnectedDrive portal and would be a...

Second charger free of charge

After reading about other owners having problems with the drive train and 2 - 3 error messages myself the car software was recently upgraded. A happy surprise was that the standard charger is replaced as it apparently falls short of the IP44 it claims. If you have a charger marked 7644241-02 it migh...
