Re: Serious i3 Security Problems

What shocking to me is that thousands of i3s have the custom code via BimmerCode and it has been tested so why not bundle all that and include in a software update. To clarify, BimmerCode doesn't change an i3's software; it can change the values of parameters that the i3's software reads to govern ...

Re: Serious i3 Security Problems

I would guess, in today's world , the real pressure ( Both good and Bad) comes from Social Media, Fan Boys and Shorts. Publishing the report in online Auto magazines , twitter , FB will effect new model sales, company reputation in millennial's , so you bet! Keen Security Labs is withholding detail...

Re: 2018-1 Navigation Update

Thought about it but can't do this in work laptop and home laptop has expired anti virus so it was a choice to spend of anti virus or map. Unless you get your map data directly from BMW, it's a pirated file that could include malware. How would 2019-01 be available so early? No idea. After installi...

I just downloaded it using the link provided, so it's still available on FB. Maybe this download isn't available to those who aren't members of the FB i3 group.

Re: Coding the i3

However, immediately after coding the climate control recirculation setting, the side mirrors would no longer fold when locking the doors.

Re: Ground clearence difference of 2014 bev i3

May be the left side of the bev’s closer to the geound because electric motor is located on left side. Our right side is totally empty! Not only that, but on average, the weight of passengers is greater on the left side of left hand drive i3's because a driver is always present. With the REx system...

Don't waste your time on the North American NEXT (wide-screen professional navigation only) 2018-1 or 2018-2 version because the 2019-1 version is now available as a torrent file.

Re: Run on flat tyres

Or carry a spare if it is convenient for you. I do. I carry a tire plug kit instead of taking up space inside our car with a spare tire and wheel. A plug kit is much less expensive than a spare wheel and tire. Applying a plug is also easier than changing a wheel and tire. However, a plug might not ...
