Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

If you can wait two months , this one might work, even with the superfluous (in the i3) front-fog switch: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-european-bmw-parts/european-headlight-switch/61319265303~oeb/ It looks as if the rear-fog Euro switch that is still being manufactured, and plays nice with LE...

Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

I have installed the i3’s Euroswitch with the illuminated rear-fog button — pressing it also lights up 5. No, lighting up 7 is a coding setting somewhere in the BDC_Body module.

Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

I tried the exacto method and while I can push the button in further now, it doesn't seem to have a return spring to release it so I have to pry it back out. Your plight inspired me to take apart the light switch installed on my i3 at the factory, and it doesn't appear that the blank buttons will a...

Re: Dash Cam Recommendations?

So far, so good with Garmin Dash Cams in front and back. They're tiny.

Either software will work to activate the rear-fog settings, but in addition you'll need some kind of mechanical BMW light switch to turn the lights on/off.

Re: Touchscreen

. I think you'll really like the iDrive 6.0 UI/UX in your 2019. I wish their was an easy way to upgrade my 2014. I know someone could probably do a control unit swap, but that would get expensive in a hurry. Yeah, it's a significant upgrade, requiring new hardware. Indeed, it would get expensive to...

Re: The AAA Cold and Hot Weather report

… However, it also shows that "pre-conditioning", heating in the winter and A/C in the summer, can make a significant improvement. The least efficient way is to jump in the car without taking the 20-30 minutes to get the car and cabin ready for the weather conditions. Just a clarification...

Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

^ Success (sort of)! Your photo shows the turn indicators illuminated in the rear bumper, not the rear-fog LEDs. My i3 does the same with the rear-fog switch activated, so I'm guessing we used similar codes. Here's a BMW diagram of the left rear lights in an i3 exterior, along with their functions. ...

Yes, iDrive 6.0 for the 2019 model year, as in 2018, though the tiles are newly available with 2019 MY Business navigation, as well as the upgraded Professional.
