My brand new 528i has the Battery light on (pic attached). I don't think this is normal. Plus, the alert says the battery is only at 82% and the car has 107 miles on it - shouldn't it be higher than 82%?

The fix is easy take it to the dealer and have them take it completely out-of transport mode.

82% is fine even 75% was OK on my vehicle.

I assume taking it our of transport mode can only be done by the dealer?

When I took it in they had it for only about 30 minutes and I am guessing they are the only ones that can perform the task. I do not remember the exact comments but they said something to the effect that only a portion of the systems where taken out of transport mode and they reset or initialized something twice to complete the task. Since then it has been working fine.
