Re: Broken mounts? what that whine?

Indeed that was the problem. I broke the motor mount bolts, AC line & damaged both halfshafts. It was fixed in a week & I received the new motor mount design.

Re: 20" Alloys with 20mm Hubcentric Spacers

Looks nice. And you got those wheels from another i3 with 20's? In reference to your 'rides softer/higher' comments.
I have 19's and if I keep these as-is, I'll at least put spacers on to widen the track so it doesn't feel so tippy.

Re: Autonomous driving / adaptive cruise control

How difficult is it to retrofit adaptive cruise to an i3 which didn't come with it originally? I have the Parking Assist, but drove a loaner with adaptive cruise and it's pretty slick.

Re: How do you smog a REX in California?

I would expect it to be smog-exempt because it's engine displaces under 50 cubic inches. (650cc = 39.6cu in) I had a Fiat 850 which had a 819cc engine & when they were stil requiring smog tests for 74-older, I was exempt. However, models with 903cc engines were not. I'm trying to pull up the cur...

Re: How much more are these going to depreciate?

I bought used vs leased new because I drive more miles than any lease would allow for. I'm coming out of a 3 yr lease on a Fiat500e, where I tested the waters of EV'ing. If I didn't need more range I'd have probably ended up with a used 500e as those are dirt cheap, too. $7k for a 3yr old.

Email Notifications?

Sorry if this is a FAQ but I've looked around & can't seem to find mention of it. Is there any way to receive email notifications when the car is finished charging, or for other status notifcations? My Fiat500e had this & I was spoiled by it, so I could let folks in the office know when my c...

Re: Looking for smaller rims for my i3

Mercedes and VW/Audi also make wheels in this 5x112 bolt pattern. Whether you can find something with the backspacing you need is another story, but youre not limited to just BMW wheels. I would be interested in seeing the fattest tires one could fit inside the fenders, as well.
