Re: Long Term Ownership: anyone have a high mileage B250e?

Welcome to the forum!! I purchased a 2014 fully loaded off-lease B (from California).

I am keeping my eye on (a...

Re: How to get longer range in the winter

Hi ruoho,

Thanks for your update. I'm curious how you "blocked the whole mask" :) Any chance that you'd be willing to post a few photos of your secret sauce? :)

Thanks in advance.

Hi Marcin,

Very impressive! What insulating material, the red stuff in your photos, did you use?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Calling all 2014-2015 owners

My 3x/week roundtrip work commute i...

Any members of the B250e High Mileage Club??

Hi all, Given the range limitations of our beloved B's, I'm just curious as to what the higher end of odometer readings might be in our group. Is anyone driving a B with over 75,000 miles? I purchased an off-lease 2014 Cirrus White in March 2018 with 12K miles. Currently, her odometer just rolled ov...

Re: Malfunction visit workshop display message

Hi Krazeivan, My initial guess, given that it's a 2014, is that your 12V battery might be showing signs of "old-age" Same thing happened to me twice in 1 week about 6 months ago...I replaced the 12V in my car with an XS Power Battery and haven't had any Malfunction visit workshop display message sin...
