Re: i3 LED Headlights

They are only adaptive in the sense that they self-level, they do not move left to right with steering inputs. The new-for-2019 lights add bi-LED lights (with available auto-highbeams) and fixed low-speed LED cornering lights... the cornering lights only work at speeds below maybe 50kmh, and they do...

Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

I didn’t have any way to deactivate one of them (probably could have with a coding software) but I figured as long as I used them properly then having two wasn’t an issue. Plus Audi’s and Olds ...

Re: Rear-Fog Switch Retrofit (U.S. i3s)

Meanwhile, for those attempting to activate the rear fog, please ONLY activate one side (driver's side), so as not to confuse other road users that you're hitting your brakes - which makes it worse for safety in a foggy situation.

Re: Parking Assist not available on the 2020 i3 models

I have access to both CA and US 2020 order guides, I can confirm that 5DP - Parking Assistant (which includes 508) is still available on non-s models... s models only offer 508 - Park Distance Control because of the fender flares (as others above have pointed out).

Re: New Break Disk & Pads on new car

What is making you think you need new brakes? An alert on the dash or a shady mechanic?

Re: AC Condenser Damage - 2015 BMW i3 REX

My AC damage was caused by faulty design. The compressor self destructed and spewed metal filings throughout the system. My quote to repair was $22292.65. I decided not to repair it. Traded it in for salvage and got $8477, for a vehicle with a pre-AC failure fair market value of $15940. To soften m...
