After nearly 2 years of ownership of our 2015 Rex. We finally had the power steering drop off on the way to work. It was a very strange feeling. I just turned off the car and restarted it, and the problem went away. No lights or other issues after that.

It is due for service so I will get the service advisor to look at installing the latest software update.

It might have just been a bad unit, but I bought the Foxwelll scan tool and could not get it to work with my 2014 i3 Rex. Loaded Bimmerlink on an iPad with the Veepeak obd Bluetooth dongle, and it worked great. It will also allow you to register your battery. Good luck with the Rex issue. Keep us posted!

There is a list of known compatible readers at the bimmercode.app site:

I have the "VEEPEAK OBDCheck BLE" from a previous car and it is supported.

FWIW, I have the Foxwell OBD tool and it works fine with my i3 (and my GT). Make sure you have the latest firmware in the thing, and, it does need to have the BMW extended codes option installed for full compatibility.
