Re: Battery capacity issue

I find very interesting that there isn’t a single member who can share a first hand experience of having the battery replaced under warranty. If you go to a Tesla forum, for instance, you quickly hear from people who did. It certainly does sound like BMW really, really, really doesn’t want to replac...

Re: Automatic mirror unfolding

Do you happen to remember which one? I coded the car using BimmerCode, but was only able to get them to fold when locking and holding the button on the remote for half a second...

Re: Automatic mirror unfolding

I take that having the mirrors fold automatically when turning off the car is not an option? My garage is very tight so I have to fold the mirrors to move around. But locking the car every time is a bit of an inconvenience for plugging, unplugging, etc.

First world problems :)

Confirmed! EcoPro + is one of the options and works great.

Re: Used 2014 i3 showing 14 kWh battery capacity, 50 mile max range.

Quick update. We had a chance to drive the i3 for a good 20 mintes or so, and although that was not enough to recalibrate the computer, we soon realized that the estimated miles were not going down in accordance with the actual miles driven, they were much slower. So we went ahead an purchased the c...

Re: Used 2014 i3 showing 14 kWh battery capacity, 50 mile max range.

Thank you! We will probably ask for the extended test drive. This is the BEV version, so hopefully we can tell rather quickly. The dealer was able to talk to BMW and they confirmed that in any case it would not meet the threshold for warranty replacement.

Re: Used 2014 i3 showing 14 kWh battery capacity, 50 mile max range.

Thank you! I had them check with a BMW dealer (they are not, but another dealer from the same chain is). Likely it might be the computer getting confused, since the car has probably been sitting a lot and then suddenly test driven for the past few weeks. But the trick is that we would be going about...

Used 2014 i3 showing 14 kWh battery capacity, 50 mile max range.

Hi there! We were about to purchase a used 2014 i3 with 50k miles. The car looks great, but when the dealer charged the battery in preparation for us taking the car, we realized that the maximum range was 50 miles. We checked kapa and got 14 kWh. Luckily we had not signed anything yet. I had never s...
