    That last image looks like an ad from a dealership on local TV.

    Very good and thorough review.

    I’m surprised how much worse the interior of this base version looks compared to the “Giga” version with technology package that I test drove a few weeks ago …

    My understanding was that the Rex didn’t come with a heat pump. Have I been misinformed?

    1. kubel says:

      BMW does list the 2015 REx as having a heat pump, but it was my understanding that the heat pump sits where the gas tank is on the REx, which is why it’s not available on the 2014. It may be a mistake in the mistakes, or maybe they redesigned the REx in 2015.

    Ok, so how do you use L1 16 amps when the charger brick is only good for 12??
