F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
F80 BMW M3 sedan, F82 BMW M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible forum. This 5th generation M3 and all new M4 features a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine (engine code S55) 425hp and 406lbs of torque! Heavy use of light weight materials makes this generation lighter and faster then the outgoing E9x M3.

Final Warranty Service Appointment

Hello fellow M4'rs
I have about a month or two to go before my 16' M4 Convertible is out of warranty and service. The car has been virtually trouble free for the last 4 years. Only issue is a "charge warning" appearing about 4-5 times after driving for 2 or more hours straight. Have brought it in while the warning message was displayed and they were not able to find anything. Vehicle only has about 25k on it and never pushed or raced. Actually got over 21k miles out of the first set of tires. Just wondering if and when I bring it in for service soon, what should I have them check for as a more common problem that others may be experiencing. All the plugs and other big service items were done about 1-2k miles ago. Thanks for your help.
Glenn

Error Again

Error came up twice in 10 minutes this time after a very short drive. Error went away on its own in a few seconds. Any ideas??

The battery is dying, not sure if it's cover by 4-yr/50k warranty.
And battery in M3/M4 is expensive, LiFePO4 not lead-acid for reduce weight.

I suggested this last year when I was having this issue and they insisted that the battery "checked out" okay. I'll push the point again when I bring it in for service.
Thanks for your time.

If dealer logged that complaint last year, push for replacement, tell them that same issue has been lurking not just recently. That LiFePO4 is like $1500, this is not your grandpa car battery.
