Re: I3s first drive

Today being Friday I picked up a white demo i3s for our weekend test drive. We've just come back from a very dark tight, hilly, twisty roads and what a car. This is everything the i3 should have been from the start. My complaints from my test drive 3 years ago where:- Sloppy steering now excellent. ...

I3s first drive

This has taken 3 years for BMW to come up with a great i3s driver’s car. I had the car for only 30 minutes but what a fantastic better car than the old i3. I’ve had over the years plenty to say on the poor driving ability of the i3 and this was the reason I purchased my BMW 225xe. I have booked the ...

Re: Lock & Unlock with Remote is unique behavior

I don't understand why people need to make their car make a noise when the vehicle locks. How about think of others who may be asleep when a vehicle horn goes off. America is bad for horns going off when they lock their cars.

Re: 12v Battery Upgrade?

Doesn't BMW USA have 5 years warranty which includes free recovery for flat batteries or keys locked in the car. It even allows the cost of accommodation if required.

Re: i3 is over

With the amount of long range battery Ev's being launched with great designs like the new Jaguar I Pace with a range of 480k who would pay the large dollars BMW requires for a very out of date BMW i3 Our BMW i3-REx is not a cuff link, tie, or pair of shoes. It is not a style but exceptionally cheap...

Re: Apple CarPlay

You must have the newest version of iDrive to add on CarPlay. I believe that I drive version only comes on ‘18 and newer model years. BTW I love CarPlay and the $300 option was a steal. I never use BMWs system anymore. CarPlays on all the time. I have to agree. BMW should stop with there poor mappi...

Re: How much more are these going to depreciate?

The only semsiable way to buy an i3 is using your company to be able have tax right offs. What I am seeing from BMW is the i3 will be the cheapest EV ever manutatured as the X3 will be a lot more dollars as well the next i cars. Trump is going to be the biggest factor as he has said he will remove t...

Re: i3 is over

The way BMW is going with its up coming new I cars the i3 may be cheap buying. I do think trump could turn the whole EV market on i's head if he lowers miles per gallon consumption .

Re: i3 is over

Once you get up into the i3 money it doesn't take much to throw another 50k into the pot. Even in NZD that's a lot! :shock: Not trying to argue with you, but that made no sense to an average consumer like me... The i3 price is not for the average consumer as its 3 times the price. You have to be ea...
