Re: Why is the roof black?

I highly recommend getting your windows tinted. I live in the California Bay Area and we normally see temps in the 90-100's all summer long. I too found the AC being very lack luster until I tinted my windows (35% back, 50% front). Ever since the tinting the I only need to run the AC on low to cool ...

Re: Just took delivery! Two quick questions.

I can confirm the rear cup holders in my REx also get warm. My kids aren't too happy about that.

Re: My first day commuting in my new Rex

I'm very interesting in hearing stories of owners driving with the range extender on so thanks for the post. I got my REx almost 2 weeks ago and really wanted to see first hand how the extender would handle my commute (18 miles each direction, mostly freeway). Over the past few days I purposely didn...

Stevens Creek BMW in Northern California currently has 25 in stock (http://www.stevenscreekbmw.com/new-inventory/index.htm?make=BMW&model=i3&bodyStyle=Sedan). I walked in on Saturday (without an appointment) and left with the exact model I wan...

Re: Service menu?

I tried it on my REx and it works. There really isn't anything interesting in there. If I remember there were 4 menu options: TV (this is the only odd one), Navigation, Phone & BMW Connect and Gracenote. TV menu had a bunch of settings like channel and frequency. I didn't play around with it. Naviga...

Re: I managed to get a discount on the BMW i3...

On Saturday I walked into my local BMW dealer and left with the exact REX I wanted and paid $2K under MSRP. The sales guy said I was the first person to buy under MSRP which I'm not so sure I believe. They are a high volume dealer and had 18 available for purchase (they now have 26 according to thei...

Re: BMW i3 REX - Taking too long to charge on Maximum Settin

Hey everyone. I just took delivery of my REX on Saturday and noticed today that on the brand new ChargePoint 6.6kWh chargers at my office I can only charge at a maximum rate of 4.9 kWh. These are the only chargers I have used so far so I don't know if it has something to do with the chargers or my i...
