Re: i3 purchase 94rex or 120 bev

For me it depends on charging infrastructure. I like to take mine on long distance journeys and at the moment I need at least 190 mi of highway range to make it to DC charging stations. So until the charging infrastructure improves, I'm staying with a REX. If I was only using it at a city vehicle. B...

Re: NEWBIE REX ACTIVATION QUESTION

As I just got back from a 500mi road trip in mine. My take: Hold SOC can last 100s on miles... Speed is a very minor factor to point, but the aircon is the biggest. For the first 225mi, i kept it in eco pro+, no air con, ACC set at speed limit(60-75mph) I arrived at my first dc charge with 68% on ba...

Re: Conflicting listing info on 2017 BEV

I believe the 94ah battery was an option in 2017. The only 2017s that definitely have the 94ah battery are the 2017 REX.

I'd go by whatever the VIN decoder is telling you, that's how I found the exact one I wanted. Far too many dealers do not list the option list correctly.

Re: Updating Maps

I ended up paying for the maps, because I need have a cable to use the FSC generator. Very simple process and I complete recommend going to the cheapest vendor, because they are all selling the same thing. Particularly the ones that send you a download link. You are essentially just paying for the F...

Re: Bimmercode and changing when the Rex comes on.

thanks, I do already have the 75% hold SOC enable in. I just wanted to see if i could raise the safety net of the REX automatically turning on.

Re: Preconditioning without ConnectedDrive?

Did anyone figure out how to precondition and keep the panic alarm on the key fob? I reprogrammed my fob using Bimmercode's expert mode, but some of the the functions do not see to allow the Short/Mid/Long? Short on both the 3rd and 4th button do not see to allow for any changes to take hold. So My ...

Bimmercode and changing when the Rex comes on.

I couldn't find any definitive info if this has worked for others with Bimmercode on expert mode. So far is see: you go to the Kombi section, turn on expert mode. Then go to: 3000 Anzeige_Konfiguration Section: SOC_HOLD_POSITION Inside there the stock position is Werte=0C Which I hear is 6% of batte...

Re: Cargo Liners?

I'm going to test out Cover Craft's custom fit cargo liner, I found it on sale on their outlet store for $50. Instead on $98 I'd link it but they took it offline immediately after I bought it. You can find it on their eBay outlet store here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Cargo-Area-Liner-2014-18-F...

Re: Rex Range seems unusually high

After a road trip, I see it as high as 105mi on the Rex. It slowly readjusts to the 80mi range over few city drives

Re: How important is Drive/Park Assist?

I think the Driver tech package and HK sound are a necessity. I could live without the park assist, but I found it extremely hard to find one with the options I wanted and no park assist. Park assist seems to be the most common option on 14-16's. Adaptive Cruise Control is what standard cruise contr...
