In its original configuration, the i3 had goal set for a charge rate over 7.0 kW. Unfortunately, owners reported problems with the KLE (onboard charger) with ultimate charger failure. To rectify the situation, BMW issued a software update to limit the charging rate to 4-5.5kW.

Now, BMW has issued a service action (referenced above) to replace the onboard chargers which will bring the charging rate back up to the original intended rate of ~7 kW.

If you own an i3, now might be a good time to contact your dealer and make them aware of the above Service Action and get the replacement done free of charge along with the required software update

Bummer.

One thing cool about a Tesla is they have the ability to send updates without the car being present.

This is more of a recall on a bad part. Weird that they did not no this before they rolled out production, considering all the R&D.
