Re: PART DIY HOME 32A CHARGER INSTALLATION

I would put some protection on the "charger" cable where it goes out of the box on the notch in the metal. Some duck tape, or a rubber grommet ( cut to be able to slide it on the cable) Or fixing the outside part of the cable to the wall with a shock cord One day, someone will pull on that...

Re: i3 tire chains

I have used the fabric chain with success. And also the kevlar Michelin ones. The first working slightly better. I live in a national park with a lot of snow, so i need those. The fabric ones are easier to put on. I have to remove them once outside the park.

Re: Class Action Lawsuit

Taken from the article: "However, the lawsuit says, the slowing issues also occur when the i3 switches from battery power to the Range Extenders." The i3 never switch from battery power to the Range extenders. No wonder if journalist write it wrongly, that many people won't understand that...

Re: Bimmercode hold state of charge.

""""So you're saying that if I switch the REX on with 30% battery left (or anything over 6%), run out of gas, then the car will definitely continue running? Yes. This is the way i drive it when i know that i have long stretch to do. I hold the the holding point to 75%, and use al...

Re: Bimmercode hold state of charge.

whether the car will return from gas back to electricity ones the gas is out. This scenario would be the opposite of what the car is "supposed" to do. Normally, it runs out of electricity and goes to gas. I'm wondering if the reverse would happen if there's still loads of electricity left...

Re: Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer in the Rex tank?

The only problem i have with my I3 since 3 years is the Rex showing notice that i won't start and that i can continue my trip only on electricity. Each visit to the dealer finish with locating the problem with the fuel being transformed to Jello. I don't use the Rex for months. Fuel is Shell V Max g...

Re: Bimmercode App REX ‘hold mode’ enablement step by step

If you are in a hurry, DVDinmotion solution. So simple i was able to do it myself. Even if i still fumble with the Bimmercode solution. Been using it since three years and i never had any issue with it. You receive a file by email, copy it to a USB stick, put the USB stick in the USB of the i3, and ...

Snow Chain ( fabric )

I ordered a set of those fabric snow chains. They weight nothing and fit in the frunk with my portable charging cable. I live in a forest. Snow removal is not bad, when they come. For 3 years, i wasn't able to go up the extra hill to the garage maybe 3 times. I have the very good Nokian winter tire....

Re: Anyone with over 40k miles on their Rex? Please chime in

What do you mean by 40K on the REX ? 40K with the REX running ? Or 40K on a REX equipped i3 ?
