Turns out I wasn't exactly right about that. The plug looked like a normal plug to me, but the plug housing is larger than the UK standard. While the plug works with UK home outlets, it is too large to fit in most public charging stations.

The cord is coiled and users have had problems with the car unplugging itself during charging.

You'd think problems like these would have been caught in early testing.
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
