Re: Buying a 2017 94ah vs. 2014-15Rex

I went from 2015 REX 20" to 2018 BEV 19". Certainly prefer the latter. The software fix for 2014- 16 results in a half a second acceleration cut every time the car hits a bump. 2017s+ have a better traction computer and this annoyance is gone completely. The ACC seems a bit better, although still cr...

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.

Re: Things I Dislike About My i3

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.
