I didn't know this was available, Wow! I followed your link and requested the info yesterday; it was ready for me to download this morning.

It isn't a full history of the data, only the last drive, so it's not like downloading complete Facebook or Google histories. But that's crazy. My acceleration was rated at 0. I hope that's good. How much time I spent in Eco Pro mode. How many **inches** my sunroof is open. GPS location with three feet accuracy. Interesting stuff indeed!
Same here! My acceleration is rated at 5 with proactive driving at 4. There's no explanation of the ratings, but we got quite different acceleration ratings. I always drive in Eco Pro with ACC on and controlling acceleration and braking except when I want brisker acceleration or stronger braking momentarily. So I'm guessing that your 0 rating indicates a heavy foot :D

I was shocked yesterday to get a threatening email from BMW Canada telling me I must schedule a service appointment at BMW. First I have serviced my i3 myself during Covid as I am, 1) retired 2) cannot go anywhere so decided to do the routine service on my vehicles myself.

If this is how BMW Canada thinks they can drum up more service business I think I’ll be looking at another manufacturer for my next vehicle. I have no idea that there is any such clause in my loan agreement with BMW and since my loan is finished in December they can go suck eggs.

The email message I received yesterday (copied word for word <CTR> “C” )
