Re: REX Gastank

Hi Mike, Thx for your understanding. Not so much meant to complain as well as to raise the issue that most drivers DO like to drive electric. As Tesla is offering a "range" of battery packages, and MINI for instance also started up in three executions (One, Cooper, Cooper S) it seems a bit like a lo...

Re: REX Gastank

IMHO, a long trip in an i3 is like using a pair of pliers to loosen a bolt...you can do it, but a wrench is better. FWIW, the car was designed primarily for short trips, and was optimized for that. They spent lots of effort to make it as light as possible. Fooling with that design concept can be do...

Re: REX Gastank

I looked into perhaps adding a hopper tank and found out quickly there is no room in that car other than the front compartment -in the event of a front end collision you don't want an unprotected tank anywhere in the front of this vehicle.

NAVIGATION SWITCHES ON AND OFF

Dear All, I am driver of a BMW i3 REX. After 2000km I have tried for the first time the digital radio tuner. Since that time, every time while I am driving, the navigation screen goes to black, switches off, reboots : EVERY 6-8 minutes. Highly annoying. Anyone experience with this bug? Looking forwa...

Re: Just curious if folks had average timelines for producti

Hi Guys, It looks like BMWi is reserving production capacity "per country". Although in the Netherlands there are also not much cars around (approx 700 sold since introduction), people who order one are in for a long wait. I ordered mine May 1, 2014. It should have arrived 3rd week of July. It was p...
