Have had my new i3 for about a week now. Still getting used to things but overall love the car.
Bought it from a private seller as I had the unfortunate timing of having my TDI A3 bought back the day before the recall was announced but prior to receiving funds from VW (a two day gap). So one of the many CPO i3 BEVs that I had been eyeing was no longer an option. And since I was also now without a car, my hand was forced a bit. Rex was the only option from this seller, fully loaded less HK sound in solar orange (not my first choice either but it’s growing on me).
Have gleaned a ton of great info from here (thanks!) and have a few questions, hopefully can get some quick answers!
- why is that iRemote NEVER can tell me my battery or gas levels? Whether plugged in or not, driving, parked, etc. the info is always showing as n/a? My last trip info shows up though...
- sometimes I’ve seen pics of the instrument cluster showing the battery charge %, but not on mine. I just have the mile range. Is there a setting I need to change?
- is there a way to have the trip computer reset each time the car starts? Or only thru coding?
- I have two more years on the factory warranty but the maintenance is no longer free since I didn’t buy it from a dealer. I’ve been told that I can pay a 775 maintenance xfer fee and have “free” maintenance until the four years is up. With the Rex, will the total of any normal routine service visits exceed that amount in the next two years? I’m suspecting not.
