Re: Service threat from BMW Canada

This thread is a good reminder that the telematic system in the i3 regularly uploads an enormous stream of data about the condition of the car that goes well beyond recommended service intervals. The unloaded data points include vehicle altitude, charging time and type, whether the sunroof is proppe...

Re: AC Condenser Protection - A How To

For what it's worth, beginning with the 2018 model year a baffle has been included in the space between the front grill crossbars and the a/c condenser so that the vulnerable part is not visible from the front of the car (see linked photo), cannot be struck by road debris, and yet still receives the...

Re: Rex Junior and the tale of comfy winter driving without using the heater.

Thanks for sharing the interesting travelog!

Curious to learn if you have ever tried to slow charge Rex Senior using Rex Junior (will the i3 charge using using only the solar generator and occasional use J1722 or turbocord cables)?

Re: How can I confirm that an i3 REx has a wide-screen center display?

If the i3 is equipped with the "Technology + Driving Assistant Package", it will have the wide screen center display. If you are searching for prior model years, the adjective "professional" is often used to distinguish the wide center screen from the narrow "business" screen. The terms "professiona...

Re: The AAA $11,000 added discount on BMW i3 Purchase ....

Your calculations are correct - plus, BMW financing offers can also be applied to the transaction at rates which are better (here in the Northeast) than the competition. Moreover, BMW just announced that the CarPlay subscription will continue for the life of (current model year) cars without any add...

Re: Driver side wheel pokes out more than passenger side

Hi sipabit, Just to state the obvious, check to make sure that your size 155/70-R19 tires/wheels (narrow tire + narrow wheel) are mounted on the front of the vehicle and your size 175/60-R19 tires/wheels (wide tire + wide wheel) are mounted on the rear. I once purchased a new set of Bridgestones and...

Re: Want to buy Rims and/or Winter Tires

Hi 3pete, We also experienced bizarre, head-scratching pricing on the set of 427 winter tires + wheels, in our case in the opposite direction as your transaction, when BMW offered a complete set of four for just $508.75 (https://postimg.cc/4KfWx8HH). The "website pricing error" was quickly corrected...

Re: To lease or buy...

Hi Adam78, Short money leases are real. The link below is the ad for the 2017 i3 REX that we presently lease. No money down, $139/month, $999 acquisition fee. Shop for deals using the websites of your local dealers and visit when they are hungry for foot traffic (like in mid-January here in the Nort...
