Re: Need hand holding on 2015 Rex Fuel Tank capacity

FWIW, changing that value doesn't do anything physically...it tells the computer that it can use more of the fuel that's already in the tank. The computer will shut the REx off when the sensor says empty...not because it really is. Changing the programming tells the computer it can use more and res...

Thanks Bob. Yesterday I found some info on increasing the capacity to 9 lit but I had to enter a custom value 0X12. Haven't filled gas yet but hoping it does the trick.

Re: Need hand holding on 2015 Rex Fuel Tank capacity

I am still not able to go beyond 1.7 to 1.9 gallons on the fuel tank capacity. Is there someone that can help me with expert mode commands?
Thanks! :oops:

Re: Need hand holding on 2015 Rex Fuel Tank capacity

I have programmed using the Bimmercode app to increase the fuel tank capacity but I cannot still fill beyond 1.9 gallons (US). Can anyone shed some light on this? I haven't tried the expert mode as I am afraid I will simply screw it all up :? I just bimmercoded mine and showed that I had a quarter ...

Re: Rex Range seems unusually high

REx is purely adding energy to the battery pack, the little gas engine is no more or less efficient based on your driving style, unlike basically every other hybrid and plug-in hybrid. Your efficiency "city" versus "highway" is based on the electric motor. As far as the car is c...

Re: Cpo 2016 Rex windshield is not bmw part

What a BS dealer that is. Every CPO is supposed to go through a million (exaggeration before someone calls me out again) point inspection to check whether every thing is in order or not including if the car has had any after market parts added. The dealer slept on this. Period. You need to make them...

Re: How important is Drive/Park Assist?

When I was in the CPO market I couldn't find a i3 with everything on it. I went with a Giga World package with the park assist which I thought I'd never use but have used it a lot and I absolutely love the HK Sound system. I am glad I didn't go for the Auto everything cruise control without the HK S...

Re: USB Audio - Clipping

Does your i3 have the basic 4 speaker Audio system or the Harmon Kardan? I listen to rock and other music at pretty high volumes and it is simply a treat on the HK system.

Re: Interior

Everyone that has sat in my i3 loved the interior and I used to give people a description about the Eucalyptus, and other material used and the energy efficient plant the i3 was built in. They have also commented how roomy the car is from the inside.
They absolutely love the HK audio system. :D
