Hello All
I took delivery of my iX1 at the start of July and have loved the driving experience - much nicer car than the Q4 E-tron that I had before.
However charging is another matter.
I charge from a home wall charger overnight to 80%, but the charging session is regularly interrupted at random times and at various states of charge.
The car was booked in to my local BMW dealer, who were able to replicate the fault on their charger, and with BMW input replaced the CCU.
Unfortunately this did not fix the fault, so I am left wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue and if so what the solution was.
My car has an 11Kw charger, and I set the maximum current to 32A via the charging app which should align to the wall box output.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

My car has exactly the same issue. However, I use a PodPoint wall charger, OVO Anytime and the car software. Having contacted OVO it appears that their software is causing problems with the car charging software. OVO told me to ignore the car and rely on their system. In order to charge sensibly, I set OVO to charge to 80% and finish at 5:00am. Then I set the car to charge between 00:00 and 5:00am, end every day at 5:00am and charge to 80%. The car does charge but I receive messages at random times from the car saying it has paused operations. When I get up in the morning, the car has reached 80% (thankfully) but none of the previous days’ instructions to the car, via the BMW App (or in the car for that matter) have been saved. Although I have only had the car for 6 weeks, the software seems to require a significant upgrade to iron out many niggles!
One last thing. OVO tells me that there will be pauses whilst they take best advantage of available/cheap electricity.
