I bought my 225xe (2017 model) in the summer and had no problem charging on the 3 pin plug and at public chargers (when they are operational...). I decided to future proof my house and get a 7kw charger installed and ended up with a Zappi.
However, it seems the Zappi does not like BMW...
Can anyone say what options are needed, if any, for a 225xe to be able to precondition?
* remotely using an app vs from settings in the car
* pre-cooling on a hot day
* pre-warming on a cold day
Thanks very much
For various reasons I’ve had a summer where the vast majority of my driving has been my regular commute and I’ve maximised my use of free public charging with almost no charging at home.
As a recap my commute is around 6.5 miles uphill with fast stretches and lots of roundabouts on the way in...
I found very little review/real world comments before I bought the car so having just completed about 400 miles I thought I'd gather some observations.
. In sport mode it's fast, like throw-you-back-in-the-seat fast
. The performance in Max edrive is good, there's no reason to engage the engine...
I'm due to take delivery of a BMW 225xe as a company car in around 5 weeks. (UK)
We were going to install a standard 13A 3 pin socket at my workplace for me to charge during the day.
What are the other options for charging that don't cost too much?
Can you install/plug into a standard 16A or...
