    Just buying a 530e, my first BMW.

    We get diesels because of tax and PHEV’s for the same reason. Much rather have 700 miles of range but hey-ho. My retirement car will be a 540i.

    i4 2021 I believe. ...as long as it has a fast charger (>50Kwh) which I’m sure it will.

    One thing that hasn’t been said (don’t tell the naysayers) is that the public charging network is a lot more “available” than they think. This can also be linked to free parking (again don’t tell them) and can often be free(!) Look at ZapMap and see if there are charging points near you. If there are some that are likely to be convenient for you invest in a public charging cable (only a three pin charging cable came with my car) and download a few of the Apps (e.g. Pod-Point) and off you go!

    Adaptive Icon Light - switching on

    Surely the stalk operates the High Beam Assistant and related adaptive features? As long as the light switch is on “Auto” then the lights will bend round corners, etc just not select main beam features unless you do with the stalk. Or am I missing something in your initial question?

    Software update

    Had the same with mine this week... Get started and OK stay there until you set it up again - a bit like new iOS on an iPhone. Happened for both of my keys (see below). No idea with album art - will go and check myself. I gave them my spare key so didn’t lose the presets on my “main” key, but yes lost them all on they key they had. No idea on recall they just called it an “enhancement” but didn’t say specifically what it was (just that it related to my Charging Failure.

    530e charging fail

    Now got a 28 mile range after the KLE replacement and software update. ...must have been scrambled before?

    Reverse mirrors

    But you must have the folding mirror option (or possibly the memory seats?) Do you have the folding mirror switch in your door panel? G30 equivalent attached:

    19 plate headlights

    LED’s also consume less power and hence lower the CO2’s.

    Flat key battery?

    Mine have both just failed after a couple of years (never previously in two F10’s). One of which had never been used!
