Re: Have an extended test booked - hoping to travel far

Here are the location of the first CYC CCS chargepoints which are the nearest to you that I know about. You could easily reach any of those from North Yorks without needing to stop for fuel in the REx. Rear Front Street Car Park Bedlington (NE22 5UD) Keel Row Car Park Blyth (NE24 1AH) Station Yard C...

Re: Spotted

I've also only seen one other so far. It was a solar orange i3 on the seafront at Cullercoats about 3 weeks ago. Anyone here ?

Re: Intelligent geo-location for home charging

I think you can set one of the buttons to select the Rex so then its just one press. Yes but you have to keep an eye on the SoC and watch for it to drop below the threshold and then manually turn it on. I know that's not exactly difficult but it'd be useful if you could pre-program it before you se...

Nope, it's not brill. I'd go for the HK before the sunroof if it's a choice between the two.

Re: Possible problem with BMW i WallBox!

My i3 is about 4 weeks old - chances are it is using a different version of the software to your i3 - May be you could ask BMW if there is an update? That's one of the things they did last week when my i3 was at the dealers. I didn't expect it to fix the main charging issue that I have but I was ho...

Re: Possible problem with BMW i WallBox!

Presume your wallbox is installed outside then ? With the delayed charging, do you pay attention to when it actually starts ? I don't know why but mine starts way too early. For example, I have the tariff time set from 00:30am to 6am and the departure set at 8am. If I charge using the wallbox it wil...

Good post Frank. Those two points you made were important in my decision to go for the REx along with it allowing me to avoid having to rely on public charging for the longer journeys.

Re: Possible problem with BMW i WallBox!

Having said that, the car is a brand new concept and so is the WallBox - I am very happy to beta test both until BMW fix the issue how ever long it may take! Yes, I'm pretty chilled about it too as I expected a few niggles and BMW have been very helpful so far in trying to figure it out. Saying tha...

Re: Possible problem with BMW i WallBox!

Hi Myi3 (& welcome to the forum). In a word... yes. Fenlander started a thread about it so please could you add your comments in there ? http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=811 I'm going through a variety of charging niggles at the moment. I've had my wallbox replaced (all done within ...
