    No fix available yet that I'm aware of

    My dealer did an update to my computer and that helped a little.... but only a little. What I've found is that my Range readout on the computer is pretty accurate below 100 miles, so that's what I...

    Maybe your fuel gauge needs fixing also?

    I've been dealing with this situation for over 16.5k miles since Nov, so obviously I can live with it. But I don't accept that this is the way the BMW engineers designed it, and that's why I've...
