Re: New i3 Owner

So here is where I got some of my i3 charging information from; https://www.pluglesspower.com/learn/bmw-i3-charging-ultimate-guide/ and where it says Level 3 = DC Fast Charging. Unfortunately, some U.S.-specific on-line sites incorrectly describe DC fast charging as "Level 3". I suppose t...

Re: New i3 owner from TX

I have been using one of the original JB EVSE's for the past 4+ years. It was a "kit" and non-UL rated. Daily use with two Plug-ins and ZERO problems. Same here. I ordered my kit with the optional small LCD, wireless remote, and programming cable. This JB was the final version with open-s...

Re: New i3 Owner

I asked the CA to make sure the i3 was at 100% and of course it wasn't. It was only showing 90km at 93%. I think i3 has range degradation from the original max range of 130km when new? The computed range estimate depends on the conditions under which an i3 was driven during the last ~30 km, so one ...

Re: Software Update

Mainly lists fixes for integration with iPhone iOS 8 and blackberry phones. Looks very old. What a strange message you received! If it was from your local BMW dealer, maybe a call to their service department would provide clarification. However, paying a BMW dealer anything for a software update is...

Re: Just coded my "new to me" i3/Rex with Bimmercode

By no means am I an expert on this subject but I feel all that the dealer will do is reset the software back to factory specs. I wonder if the Bimmercode app will do that 'reset' for us. There's no single BimmerCode reset command. However, the parameter values of each module are backed up, so one c...

Re: A Bolt owner has i3 regrets sometimes

Those who need more, just buy the range they need, but the REx is a really, really questionable technology. That no one else offers it, or is likely to offer it, QED. If I wanted a compact EV hatchback with 300 miles range, no BEV exists with these specs due to the relatively low energy density of ...

Re: Interior Mood Lighting

I also have no clue what everyone's talking about regarding blue lighting in the interior. How is this engaged? Just unlock the doors using your fob. These lights won't illuminate if the doors are unlocked using Comfort Access. I don't know whether these lights are standard on all trim levels. Our ...

Re: A Bolt owner has i3 regrets sometimes

We do feel the Bolt one-pedal driving is a generation improved over the i3. The regeneration braking is much more positive. If you're comparing regenerative braking power, applying this power to rear wheels risks upsetting stability much more than applying it to front wheels (more dangerous overste...
