  1. 530e - Just orderd

    Great choice of colour! Im sure you will love it. I got 93% on Electric for my 23.6 mile commute home yesterday.. With 536mpg! The 100% commute will happen soon i think!
  2. Portal and app won't connect to car

    I found a option under manage apps in the car to run diagnostics. It reported connectivity was ok but couldnt connect to bmw services. It let me send a status report to. So sounds like another bmw central server issue....
  3. Portal and app won't connect to car

    Still not working. The car appears to have lost all connectivity as no rtti, online entertainment or apps. Guess i need to follow up with BMW
  4. Hi all Anyone else having issues with the bmw connected app and portal connecting to the car? Mine is stuck with 'vehicle in motion' message since this morning even when the car is tucked up on the drive sipping in the electrons....
  5. Pick 5 options only!!

    1) driving assistance plus 2) icon adaptive headlights 3) comfort pack (for memory seats) 4) hk 5) comfort seats( or at least sport) 6) vdc 7) heated steer wheel wood trim 9) powered boot lid 10) hud I have 1-8 and wouldn't change any of them...
  6. Connected Drive App losing VIN info

    My app on android has been playing up last 2 days. It keeps on needing me to log in with email address and this eveinng both the app and desktop website havent recorded my commute home as the last drive. Though everything else is ok (battery and charge status and location)
  7. Harman Kardon - EQ tips?

    It took about 4 weeks with 2 hours a day use for the hk in mine to start sounding good. I ws very disappointed to begin with but now very happy with the system.
  8. Cognac leather

    I'm so happy with my med blue with cognac. Imho it works really well and the interior feels so 'warm'.
  9. Variable Dampers

    In normal commuting type traffic on pretty decent roads i cant honestly tell much of a difference between sport and comfort (530e with vdc). Ride and handling is always good! Car has almost 1k miles on it now so will have to have a proper blast on country roads to really test the suspension modes...
  10. Battery Re-gen

    Ive found myself driving like a 'big girls blouse' in the 530e. As my commute is 23.6 miles and i charge both ends my goal is to try to get to 100% ev for the trips. Best so far is high 80% and 350mpg. First tank of fuel has given 650 miles with 1/3 tank left. I juggle between max e and auto so i can arrive on ev fumes...
  11. Just to tease you... 23.6 mile commute home today took me 35 mins and averaged 353mpg and 89% on electric.works out at 21 miles fully electric at mway speeds in 4.5c temp. Not too shabby at all.

  13. Public Charging at PodPoint

    I went to watch the new star wars film at the little cinema at pinewood studios a couple of nights ago. The bonus was the free charge point in the car park and everyone else defrosting their car after the show as i unplugged and zoomed off thanks to pre conditioning.
  14. 530e - Just orderd

    Finally collected the car today! I'm very happy so far. Lots to gets used to still but the active cruise and lane assist are very good so far. Plus the icon headlights are great for the winter nights. The hk is a little underwelming so far but needs to bed in a little and then have the settings played with.
