Re: EV Li-ion battery lost 10% while parked for 4 hours

You can try to setup ISTA diagnostic software and monitor the cell voltages with it. This way you'll know if your battery voltage really drops or the % readout is having issues.

Car windows all have film on them, so they don't shatter in crashes-- tinted or not. I think dealers and car detailers use car glass cleaning products :P AFAIK windshields and some windows have internal film between the layers of glass, you can't damage it with Windex. Other windows are tempered gl...

Re: Things I Dislike About My i3

My main complaint about i3 is no option for a heated steering wheel- this is unheard of in mainstream EVs. Also no power seats (not buying the "saving weight" excuse) and the base radio without the rear speakers- even cheapest cars have them.

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

I have $13000 discount with BMW Corporate Sales from my work. If you work for a large company, check the employee discounts.
I tried to trade in my 2018 for 2019, but the trade-in was less than $23k. With no state or utility rebates, it would cost me about $7k, so I passed.

Re: Heated seats, OMG!

Not only the seats are hot, they are also incredibly fast to heat, takes seconds ( I have Giga, as far as remember Tera was slower).

Re: The longer look down the road

All modern cars are controlled by interconnected locked down computers. The fact that i3 is electric doesn't make that much difference.
