This is helpful, thank you!

Re: Brake light indication in the car

So there are two separate points, first, Brake lights blind the person behind so they should not be used at complete stop. Second, every other car has brake light ON except i3(unless driver presses the brake) making i3 less visible to any cars behind.

I am concerned about the second point.

Re: Brake light indication in the car

I think the problem with i3 is that unlike GAS cars that have brake lights ON when stopped, i3s' stay off making i3 'relatively' less visible.

Car buying is just exhausting. Ps. Leave them a review on fb, Google, cars. Com, if you have time. It may give your c...

Re: New 2015 Rex CPO Owner with a sad story - still developing.

Not surprising to me at all! Believe me most people have been scammed like this, more than once!

Bottom line is, this is how dealership makes living but unfortunately in commission driven business model, good faith is quite rare.

ps. Try getting in touch with BMW directly.

Re: Has anyone reached 0% battery while the Rex was running.

Mine slowed down to 50ish mph at 2%, at that speed maybe rex can maintain 2% SOC maybe.

Re: Brake light indication in the car

I would also suggest that Brake lights stay ON if the car has come to stop without using brake pedal.

This is a huge problem that i3 creates for other drivers at traffic lights, its a chore to press the brake pedal after coming to complete stop(regen) to ensure that others can see i3.
