ZuinigeRijde thanks for the latest info.
Previously you had a BMS firmware update in June 2017 for a 12V battery charging issue - Battery Ageing Model
Do you remember if the fast charge to 94% was happening then?
No, fast charging was not happening to 94% with the first BMS firmware update (June 2017)

Anyway it seems clear that there are two versions of the BMS update, Elmil has the older one which does not fast charge to 94% directly , whereas the newer one does.
I did read on the German forum that there was a BMS update which did fast charge to 94%. So I explicit asked if there was an update of the BMS to fast charge to 94%.
I also asked for the BMS update, because I experienced a problem. See. http://www.mykiasoulev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=294&p=8090#p8090
. I explicit asked too to check if the air fan in the back of the car was working for this second problem. Before I left the car at the garage, I checked the error codes again with Torque Pro, and those error codes were no longer there. They could not find any problem and also the air fan in the back of the car was working. The problem of May 2018 did not happen again.
I also asked for a SOH readout. See this post. http://www.mykiasoulev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=434&p=8323#p8323

On the German thread : Umliegende Stationen-Anzeige in ft anstatt km ?
it states this is a side effect of a navigation update not the BMS. Also it shows feet not miles. It was fixed with a later navigation update. (It is not actually feet, the real distance was 7km)
That there are two versions of the BMS update is confirmed by German user Schwaendi here - Soul 2015 lädt bis 94% nach BMS Update / Antrag Akkutausch

...Is also available only recently. Had a BMS update a year ago and he also stopped at 84%.
Yes, I also asked for a navigation update, because mine was 1.5 year old. So it can be that this update caused the problem with the miles instead of km. Unfortunately I do not know the service number of the BMS update. When I picked up the car they said there was indeed a BMS update to fast charge to 94%. Note that I rarely fast charge, but sometimes it can be handy to charge to 94%, although this takes longer. I heard that the positive effect was also that fast charging to 84% is faster. And that is the main advantage for me.
