Re: Connected Drive Question

Schnort, whoever told you that was right! (I would like to know who directed you to do that)... Why it works I am not sure, but I had the same issue... In fact I had the issue in January too but I was never told the cause of the issue or what they did to fix it. My connected drive feature has not wo...

Re: Updating the i3 communications/phone software via USB dr

Re: Update on KLE replacement problem

In the industry, a recall (at least in the USA) is done for safety reasons and monitored and sometimes initiated by the government. A service campaign is a voluntary thing done at the discretion of the car manufacturer. The KLE is a service campaign, and is totally at the discretion of the car manu...

Re: Update on KLE replacement problem

I never received a recall notice from BMW, this was all initiated by me. That said, it went smoothly and the previous 5.5kW limit appears to have been removed.
