Re: 2014 i3 REx - Battery Degredation

My 2014 Rex has 56,000 miles now. This recent picture shows the GOM a little optimistic, but honestly if it's lost any range after over two years and 56k, I can't tell. I don't think BMW will have to worry about many capacity-loss warranty claims. :D https://s13.postimg.org/w81jerj3r/IMG_20160825_12...

Re: Maximum Level 1 current?

I believe it was Tony Williams that did the testing.

Re: >56 mph in ECO PRO+ ? YES!

The 56mph speed limit in Eco Pro+ is a "soft limit". You can defeat it by continuing to press the accelerator hard for a couple seconds. It's really meant more to coach you to drive slower, which will increase your range, more so than to impose a strict limit. There can be situations when you need t...

Congratulations! Great color choices, I suspect it's going to be a long 9 weeks waiting for delivery. :)

Re: Battery storage system electrified by BMW i

I've been waiting for BMW to announce this, I'd love to get it when it's time to replace my battery which would probably be in another 2 to 3 years. I have a blog post on this for anyone interested: http://bmwi3.blogspot.com/2016/06/bmw-i-home-energy-storage-system.html https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-sf...

Re: 0.0% SOC possible? yes

Mind you, it still has about 1 kWh to 1.5 kWh in the pack, it just can't be accessed. Guys, please don't purposely run the pack down this low becase you're flirting with trouble, especially if you leave it at 0% for a while. I'd recommend plugging in it as soon as you can once the SOC drops below 2%.

Re: The story behind the REx Lawsuit

Tom, great analysis, but I feel you are an easy grader: I would have gone with 10% BMW, 10% CARB, 50% Dealers and 30% Customers. In particular your evaluation of CARB's counter-productive approach to BEVx is enlightening. This whole episode reinforces my conviction that in the long run BMW should t...

That wasn't the first electric car that BMW produced. The BMW 1602e in 1972 was:

The story behind the REx Lawsuit

There's been dozens of articles on the internet covering the class action lawsuit against BMW and the i3 REx. None of them tried to really explain the problem, and how it came about, so I took a crack at it. It's long, but it's thorough so grab a drink and have a seat! http://bmwi3.blogspot.com/2016...
