Re: BMW i3 High Beams LED Upgrade

So how do the LED highs perform at night? They may "look" better but as eNate alluded to, most of these don't provide increased light output or rural road performance. I just upgraded the whole car to get better lighting :lol: I can confirm that the LCI headlights with their combined bi-LE...

Re: Precondition with key fob

alohart is correct, the early 2014 NA i3's came with the frunk icon, this changed on late 2014MY or early 2015MY i3's to the i8 icon because that button only pops the hatch in NA unfortunately, so the i3 frunk icon was confusing to NA owners.

Re: Can't code key fob trunk button to open frunk?

Got remote key 3 to open the frunk! Opened BimmerCode expert mode in Headunit HU_NBT - 3000 HMI and changed all of the KEY_CONF_* settings to aktiv (0x01) and KEY_CONF_TAILGATE_SMALL_NAME to frontgate (0x03). iDrive now shows menu items for the 3rd and 4th remote button. The trunk entries for the 3...

Re: Newbie Questions

Congrats on your new-to-you i3 Rex! The BMW app is still working, but you're right your car is 3G, so depending on the cell provider in your area you may no longer have connection to the car anymore. Do you mean by "charge range" the estimated miles/kms the car provides in the bottom right...

Re: Comfort vs Eco Pro 0-60?

Not correct, the SPORT mode in an i3s provides a brief (10-15secs i believe) of extra power, like overboost in a turbo car. Passing power on a rural road is very noticeably stronger in Sport mode vs Comfort/EP.

Re: Comfort vs Eco Pro 0-60?

The SPORT mode in an i3s is even more fun when you mash the pedal to the CFRP :D

Re: Canada - data plan

I'm considering a BMW i3 REX. Does anyone have a wifi hotspot in their i3 ? monthly Cost ? OR is it just simpler and cheaper to have a cellphone data plan and setup a hotspot for laptop use ? I have a SparkEV with Onstar - data only . Works great , but expensive . 11GB - $70/mth + tax. I usually ge...

Re: Coding Anti-Dazzle and Variable Light Distribution

The good news is that after years of unsuccessful attempts to allow the technology, A.D.B. [adaptive driving beam] lights will soon be on American cars and trucks, thanks to a section in the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that mandates their use. According to the infrastruct...
