    530e Replacement Battery Cost

    I came across a forum post (in Malaysia) whilst trying to find out the replacement costs of the plug-in battery cost. I was intrigued that the battery warranty guarantees a depletion of no more than 25% at 6 years or 60k and they don’t say the whole battery is replaced. I found out why - the battery is modular as the Malaysian post confirms. The guy posted his findings in Feb 2019 and I have converted the Malaysian Ringgits to £’s as a guide, probably in the U.K. we’ll get charged more ! We contacted BMW Malaysia to find out the cost to replace their hybrid batteries as they sold the most PHEV’s in the past few years. The BMW 330e, The 530e and the X5e. Thankfully, it is not as scary as we imagined and we want to share this information with you for you to have a peace of mind (if you own a BMW PHEV) and share with your friends who own a BMW PHEV.All BMW PHEV vehicles get a 6-year or 100,000 km warranty and the BMW i8 supercar enjoys a 8-year or 100,000 km warranty.The BMW PHEV battery is a modular battery system and so the cost of one battery module is £ 1,337 and depending on which BMW PHEV you drive, they have 5-6 modules in one battery pack. So, you are looking at a total replacement cost of between £ 6,686 to £ 8,023 if you need a complete battery change. Labour costs at any BMW authorized service center is £ 210 for one module change and for the 3-Series and 5-Series it is just £ 238

    G30 auto gearbox problem?

    Hello all, My first post - will spend some time exploring and hopefully become a regular viewer. over the last couple of days my gearbox appears to be playing up. i have a 2018 530e with 12k miles. On all occasions it has been driving in sport mode. first time was when going from drive to reverse to park at home and the car felt like it made a Big Bang before going into gear. today on 3 occasions it seemed to struggle when stationary changing gear - once mid way on a roundabout! not had it happen in comfort mode as yet. any one else had the issue? Dealer visit needed? thanks paul

  4. Hi All New to forum so hello and I could do with some help. Just bought 2019 530e and I was trying the drive settings for the electric power. I set the battery control mode to 60% to save some battery for when I got off the motorway. As i was driving along the battery indicator got down to the 60% level and instead of it just flicking into solely petrol mode the radio and sat nav died. The screen just went blank and the radio turned off? The only way I could get it back was to put the drive mode back to auto e-drive. It did not effect the dash display just the sat nav and radio. Anyone else had this? a software glitch?

    DAB Radio Logos

    Hi Guys While i wait for my new 530e to arrive i have a question about Radio Logos. Back in June when i had a 24 hour test drive of a 530e, i noticed that on the radio ( which already had some presets) that Radio 2 had its Logo, on the screen. I didnt get time to have much of a play, but do you guys know on DAB if all thre radio stations that you find, their logos come across too? Cheers Chris (from a curious newbie)

    Driving Modes

    Just thought I would ask others opinion as after driving the car for a couple of months now I'm confused about what the various driving modes actually do. I understand eco pro, comfort and sport modes and also the hybrid drive options but what does pushing the stick left do other than allow me access to paddle shifters? If im in comfort driving mode and push the stick left then that changes to gear selector to an 'S' prefix indicating that I'm in some kind of sporty-comfort equivalent? If this is the case then what would Sport mode with the stick left do for me? Am I also correct in thinking that if I don't touch the paddles the gear changes are done automatically based on the driving mode or a generic sport setting? too much to play with still but I absolutely love the car. Guys at work have driven and they say its a massive step up from the F10.

    530e charging

    Quick question, I took delivery of my 530e this week and I’m wondering if it’s ok to only partially charge the battery or whether you need to exhaust it and then fully charge?

    EV Range

    Evening. I’ve done approx 1500 miles now and I’ve noticed on the last 2 charges that I’ve got 24 miles of range. My previous mac was 22 but my average is around 20 at a guess. Anyone else notice this or is just a slight increase in ambient temp of late? I discounted that as since I’ve had the car We’ve had a couple of weekends where it’s been double figure however until this last weekend I’ve never got more than 22? is it an effect of running in?

    Battery Re-gen

    Morning all, thought I would share this as I thought others may have experienced the same thing. In eco-pro mode with literally no or very little battery I get better re-gen when using standard cruise control than downhill or by braking more. On the 8 mile drive to work I can can use cruise control as soon as I get on a decent road and then within a mile or 2 have enough battery to engage Max eDrive and drive on electronically for a few miles. Long downhill stretches don't seem to provide the same level of re-gen charge. It's the same on Motorways, any decent road where you can engage cruise at a good speed. Also, does anyone else find that Comfort seems to provide as much power and acceleration as Sport. The kickdown hampers sport too much for my liking so the acceleration is more brutal.
  10. So after waiting since beginning of April when I placed my order my car finally arrived on Monday. I'm really happy with it and love the drive - my first BMW . Haven't drove the car that much yet due to work etc but first impressions are excellent - I actually really like apple car play where others have said it is a bit hit and miss - haven't experienced any problems so far. Can't comment on economy as yet as car is not charged and can't charge at home at min as have building work going on. Only negatives so far for me are that the boot is much smaller than I thought it would be, along with small fuel tank so more fill ups required for long journeys. Guys who have ordered - it will be worth the wait - beautiful car Spec of my car: 530e M Sport Alpine White Black Dakota leather with Black-Blue stitching Comfort Package M Sport Plus Package Display Key Four Zone air con Apple CarPlay prep High beam assistant Heated Seats front and rear Through loading system Heated steering wheel
  11. Hi, Got my 530e 3 weeks ago and I'm loving it! Cannot compare it to previous 5-series as I'm new to BMW as well. 1100 miles in and I'm chuffed to bits, especially as I'm only charging it up at night and, on my typical 55 mile round-trip commute, am getting around 60 mpg. S.

    530e lead times?

    hi, im new to this site. Im a company car driver and the low tax rate means a 530e is very difficult to ignore...so much so that I pressed the button on the order this morning. Any ideas on lead times or experience of ordering any G30 5 as a company vehicle? Thanks,
