    I’ve used my free 30 minute charging session with Electrify America twice and both times, the 150 kW charger would only charge at about 40kW. During the 2nd session, my dash reflected 100 kW and then it quickly dropped to 32kW and then settled at 40kW. Is anyone else experiencing these slow...
  2. 2022+ BMW i4 General Discussion Forum
    This was my first cross country trip. Colorado to Eastern Nebraska. Right before I left Colorado got 8in of snow and central Nebraska got a foot and a half. Well left 9ish to make sure the interstate was clear. The interstate driving was great. DAPP was great it seems to be getting better.The...

    Quick drive up the coast! I set off in the early morning with 90% SOC. There were no elephant seals on the beach in San Simeon, so I kept driving. This is America, so I spent $4.25 on a drip coffee at Ragged Point. I had dipped my toes into CarPlay for a second, but decided to disable it...
  4. Q&A - Tips & Tricks
    I noticed in the menu that AC current can be limited. At home it won’t be a problem to figure out since I’ll know the circuit’s amperage, but what should the limit be for L2 chargers around town? Or should I leave it set without any limits? I don’t want to inadvertently blow a fuse and/or break...
  5. BMW i4 Charging & Batteries
    Does anyone know what this new indicator on the right mean? I don’t think it was there before. I noticed it recently while charging on DC fast charger. It doesn’t stay on for the whole charging session. It comes on and then goes away and then keeps coming back at random (at least I didn’t notice...

    Hi all, as I mentioned in my welcome post NYC-->Dallas I'm moving to Dallas in December-January and will (hopefully) have my new i4. I'll be living in an apartment complex for the first year before considering buying, and my location will be across from SMU (E University Blvd & Amesbury) and...

    Hoping some i4 owners in the US can chime in here: 1) Can we manually preheat the battery before going to a DC fast charger? If so, how do we know how long to preheat it for? 2) If we navigate to a DC fast charger, will it automatically preheat the battery? In the US, which stations will it...

    Look at the pictures. I'm not sure what to think of that. On one hand, variety is the spice of life, and anything that can encourage private industry to create more charging points is good; plus, charging is different than fueling up in that we'd be spending at least 10-20 minutes per stop...
  9. Interior
    Hi all, Went to my dealer last week for service and had a look around the iX they had there. Interior is amazing, and the 2 LCD screens are huge and super crisp. It even looks a bit like they're too big for the amount of content they display, but oh well, better to have a larger than a smaller...

    Does anyone know if i4 will support bidirectional charging? My charger is now 11 years old and plan to replace it (actually add a second one), but do not know if waiting for Wallbox Quasar 2 is worth it.

    My i4 edrive40 being delivered in March and want to be ready. Been going back and forth on getting a wall charger or just putting in a NEMA 14-50 outlet to use the mobile wall charger that be charging at 9.6kw. Does anyone have the specs of the BMW wall charger? I was thinking about getting the...

    Electrify America, which of course is a subsidiary of VW, announced that they are partnering with a company called Hubject to deploy plug & charge following the standard ISO 15118 (several cars are known to support it including the Porsche Taycan) that would allow the driver with an account to...
  13. Consumption - Batteries - Range
    Hi, I haven't seen this discussed. I put a deposit for an i4 M50, and I want to look at setting up a charging point at home. On June 1st, 2021, BMW posted a spec BMW USA News - The New 2022 BMW i4 eDrive40 and i4 M50 that shows the AC single phase charging to be 11kW and 8.25 hours 0-100%, but...
