    Ignoring the "Preconditioning battery for Supercharging" alert?

    Recently bought a M3 and didn't put a supercharger on my nav until I got there. Long story. As soon as I put the supercharger location on my nav, I got a "Preconditioning battery for Supercharging" alert. After waiting about 15 minutes, my impatient son asked me to use the supercharger...

    Whining Noise - While en route to Supercharger

    Although its been about two months since the battery conditioning feature en route to superchargers was released, I just noticed for the first time (possibly because I didn't have music playing) that there is a very distinctive high frequency whining noise coming from either the inverter or the...
