  • As with all BMWs add-ons cost an arm and a leg

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The features on the My BMW App e.g. send destinations from anywhere to the sat nav, check your mileage, lock and unlock, find your vehicle, turn on AC or heating even if not plugged in. So never need to de-ice your windows ever again. Find charging stations. Actually the list is getting endless with updates. Oh, and the maps update on the sat nav even whilst driving.

Would like to know the stats on the upcoming Tesla Model 2, otherwise it will be more of the same next time.

I can’t charge at home.

N/A

 

What public charging networks do you use, would you recommend them to others and why?
I’m using BP Pulse but very disappointed by their 50% price hike on 10/06/21 even so, they are still cheaper than most.

RSA.
