Re: Pre-heating the battery, not just the cabin.

Good info. Took me awhile but I finally got this pre-heating the battery information through my thick skull. I do have a related question though - I read somewhere that charging the battery on Level 2 (and level 1 perhaps) prior to leaving also preheats the battery. In other words, the act of chargi...

Re: Maximum range indicator

I charged last night to 99% and the range indicator showed 120 miles. Much happier seeing that, even knowing it's an estimate.

Re: Maximum range indicator

Thanks for the responses. Very reassuring. Had we not test driven the other i3, that showed the exact stated range (114), I probably would not have thought much of it. Good to know it’s normal. :)

BMW Connected Feature

We are in the middle of a 24 Hour Test drive of a 2017 i3. I have downloaded the BMW Connected app for the iPhone, and I am able to see the status, lock and unlock the doors, etc. but I do not see a place where I can choose to stop charging (say for example when I see that it is above 80%). Is it po...
