Re: Disabling parking distance sensor for bike rack using some tapes?

Apparently, the logic thinks they are defective. NOtice that it does not show any green, orange, red or anything else at the rear. It does get a signal back from the bike rack when not covered, and realizes things are close, but sounds like zero delay is interpreted as defective, and doesn't activat...

Re: 6 Months And I’m Going to Sell it

The recharging caps work just fine on the hook, flip the thing over and look, there's a molded in small recess that fits very well on that hook. There's a diagram in the owner's manual. BMW says that on the i3, opening window(s) above 25mph the drag requires more power than running the a/c. When the...

Re: Long Distance (400 miles) Rex Driving? Do I need to baby it?

At what RPM does the scooter generate max power? Probably a lot higher than the REx allows. This helps in longevity, ultimate noise levels, and harshness by keeping its output down. So, it is what it is...not optimized for long-distance travel. I'm not saying you can't do it, but there will be a lev...

Re: Long Distance (400 miles) Rex Driving? Do I need to baby it?

BOttom line on the hold...the 34Hp may not be enough to hold it, depending on your driving and the terrain. Second point, when you shut it off, unless you recharge the battery, either via an EVSE or a CCS unit, whatever SOC you have becomes your new maximum SOC. IF it's really cold out, and the car ...

Re: Effect of preconditioning on range?

The amount of warming varies by the current draw. The higher the current, the more heat generated by the internal resistance of the battery (think of it like a heating element...the more current, the hotter it gets). Ideally, there'd be no internal resistance in the battery, and thus, no losses, and...

Re: New i3 Owner

If you read the CCS tech standard, that's not true...although, it is a logical assumption.

Re: Coding the i3

If you're in the USA, you have TPMS. If you're in Canada, you probably don't. If the valve stems are rubber, they're not TPMS. No TPMS, no pressure readout is possible. I used that app, and I do see the pressure, so I know it can work, hardware dependent, though.

Re: New i3 Owner

Level 1 and 2 EVSEs are ACV charging. In the USA, a level 1 device is using 120vac, and a level 2 device is 240vac. It gets a little more complicated in other markets. The level 1 device BMW provides with US cars is a 120vac device...depending on the MY, it may be 10 or 12A. DCV charging bypasses th...

Re: Install Thule roof rack tracks

Most BMWs have a max roof loading of 200# or so...based on that, no, I do not think the roof would support it. Given the plastic trims, I'm not confident you could get a roof rack's removable feet to lock in place. That would leave either gluing or screwing a set in place...wouldn't be my choice to ...

Re: Long Distance (400 miles) Rex Driving? Do I need to baby it?

You shouldn't have to baby it, but keep in mind that when you shut it off, the indicated SOC level is the maximum it will try to recover to. If you're pushing the vehicle, your SOC may be dropping wherever you had it set to turn on, and then if you stop, that's the most it will recharge to if you're...
