Re: Windsurfing board & I3

It might. Your surfboard is 20 cm longer than this ladder, so it looks like it might fit.

Re: Considering 2016 i3 REX GIGA w. tech package

Something else to consider when buying an i3 is that all pre-2017 and part of 2017 MY models have only 3G cell connectivity. This means that after AT&T shuts 3G down next year the cars are going to lose remote control and monitoring, and BMW has so far stated that they are not going to do anything a...

Re: What should I ask for my 2018 BMW i3 w/ REX

~$4k markup also seems in line with my recent Carvana experience - I sold my 2014 REX to them and they listed it for ~$3.8k more than they gave me. So look for similar cars on their site and subtract the markup.

Re: Used car boosted rates

I tried carwana but it says , Sell is really a credit for trade in. Like the sell wizard became trade in value in final screen. I don't want to buy another car or trade in... Will try again. Any other options you tried to sell I tried Vroom, Truecar & KBB I believe. KBB was frustrating as they sent...

Re: Used car boosted rates

We were in a similar situation with a 2014 i3 REX and a Model 3 LR. No need for 2 cars as we now work from home. Used the i3 more for shopping and driving around town - best urban car IMV. Did not need to sell either and was never intending to, but got progressively more frustrated by BMW - mainly d...

Re: Resonant hum

The brakes sound very different if the car has sat for a few days and the rotors have accumulated some rust on the surface. When the pads scrape that rust the sound is very different and much louder. So, it still could be (could be) the regen activating the brakes after the car has sat and the rotor...

Re: 2019 i3s REX tires

Your wheels must be 20x5.5 front, 20x6.0 rear if I'm not mistaken. At that the front tires will fit on the rear wheels as they are within the width range specs: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Ecopia+EP500&partnum=755QR0EP500XL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

After I complained about being able to use the 10-year ConnectedDrive services subscriptions that were included in the purchase price of our 2014 i3 for less than 8 years due to BMW not providing a reasonable upgrade path to a 4G telematics module, I received this boiler-plate reply: "Due to a phas...

Re: anyone tried eco contact 6 tyres

These don't seem to be available in the correct sizes to fit the i3 here in the US.
