    2016 Tera World REx

    Still, I would double check the actual health first, it's rare maybe, but batteries can fail or have a defect out of the factory. Otherwise, you may go to the dealer for a diagnose although they may charge you for that. Good luck, I hope it is something easy to fix.

    High Voltage Component Malfunction

    Maybe BMW imitated Putin by putting chips from salvaged washing machines in it.

    Anyone over 100k miles on their car?

    More or less in line with the average. I am at 70.000 miles and have 80 miles of range on a warm day. I have a 2014 BEV though, so only battery powered.

    16.1 Kwh battery

    I wonder what my 2014 car logs altogether and what BMW is able to see... some things are highly private.

    16.1 Kwh battery

    A charging station, also known as a charge point, chargepoint, or electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), is a power supply device that supplies electrical power for recharging plug-in electric vehicles (including battery electric vehicles, electric trucks, electric buses, neighborhood...

    My old BMW i3S 120Ah and i3S 94Ah - Highly modifed cars

    :oops: if it comes off, the tab where the single bolt goes must also be ripped of, then. I checked but the A-pillar trim feels solid, only a little bit of play at the bottom, but I am not worried. Thanks for the video.

    VIN number gone

    Good thinking, I'll verify (y)

    VIN number gone

    This is what I think that happened, but I can not rule out high temperatures that loosened the VIN plate. Too bad. The dashboard was not damaged in any way, the windscreen had some "stars" from road debris, that was all.

    VIN number gone

    In my memory, the VIN was visible trough the square frame in the window, it was not etched into the glass if I recall. So whatever sticker it was on behind the glass, it's gone. Still puzzled.

    VIN number gone

    I just checked, every window has a BMW logo, but the new windshield says Saint-Gobain but no BMW logo. The other windows also show a different brand. So I guess no OEM, but still a brand used by BMW. I don't consider the absence of an OEM logo as very important.

    VIN number gone

    I don't know the difference, but it has not been installed by BMW for shure. Insurance company pointed me to a repair shop they endorse.

    VIN number gone

    I noticed the other day that the VIN number that normally is visible in a small frame in the lower left corner of the windscreen has disappeared. Either it disappeared when the windscreen was replaced or "fell off" while it was parked in hot sunlight. I don't know. My question is this: is there...

    16.1 Kwh battery

    Yes, that also might be the description. Nevertheless a EVSE is not the same as a charger.

    Working as designed, not much you can do about it. Maybe with coding, but it would be an unsafe situation.

    Who is the company that makes hatch struts with spring assist to kick the hatch open?

    Big bucks for something that takes a few seconds by hand.

    Well, I keep fighting ;)

    16.1 Kwh battery

    It is possible to open the door without shutting down the motor, but then you will hear a chime and see a warning message. I guess it is a safety measure.

    My old BMW i3S 120Ah and i3S 94Ah - Highly modifed cars

    Well in that case the installer did a good job, I checked but no traces of removal, they also reused all the rubbers. In old fashioned cars, when replacing the windows, you need also to replace the window rubbers, maybe not always but still most of the time, because you need to cut through the...

    My old BMW i3S 120Ah and i3S 94Ah - Highly modifed cars

    My windshield was replaced this spring, I am not aware that the installer removed the A-pillar trim covers.

    16.1 Kwh battery

    This "charger", actually a EVSE (EV Safety Equipment) not a charger, should be fine to charge your car as often as you want. I recommend that you use a dedicated outlet that has proper diameter wiring for sustained 3.3kW power delivery, and proper earthing.
