E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Trickle Charger

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if it is possible to connect up a trickle charger to an E82 1 Series and lock the car while it is connected and on?

Wasn't sure what circuits it would affect etc?
Thanks

Having the doors locked while connected to a charger won't have any ill effect.
Your best bet is to connect it to the jumper posts under the hood and carefully route the wires out being careful they don't get pinched when the hood is closed. I'm not sure of the best way to do this, but I'm sure you can figure it out.

thanks for the advice, ive had a look under the hood and found the points to connect it to. There are a few exit points for the cables but i will be careful!
