    530e - fully charged range monitor thread

    Over 5400 miles i've averaged 110mpg (i use an app to record each fill). Best range on 1 tank was 1255 miles and 36.5 l to fill up. Worst tank was 603 miles with 40l to fill. My commute is 23.5 miles and generally 80-99% on electric with charging both ends. Turning the a/c climate off gets the car to predict 24 mile ev range vs 20 with it on. BUT it actually makes about 2-500yds difference on my commute on where max-ev runs out!

    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....

    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
  8. 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....

    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)

    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.

    Cognac leather

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

    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...

    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...
  15. 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.
