Re: Suggestions on getting my i3 from Dealer to Home on i5 LA-SAC

Trip is doable without coding but I would NOT carry spare fuel in frunk. No shortage of regular gas stations on i5. I’d go for it figuring on a little extra time and map out charge points along the way. Save the $800 for your very own L2 charger 🙂. You also don’t need to fully charge along the way a...

Re: Service threat from BMW Canada

I guess some other BMW customers also must have been p’d off, as the following email just arrived in my inbox today from BMW. Please disregard the alert email you received yesterday. Read online Dear <FirstName> ‘<removed for privacy by me>’, We recently sent you an email advising of an alert on you...

Re: Service threat from BMW Canada

I have the parts receipts from my local BMW dealer for ‘Genuine BMW Parts’. Our closest BMW dealer cannot do the work on an i3 as they are not i3 certified, but they can happily get the BMW parts I needed for service and fast.

Service threat from BMW Canada

I was shocked yesterday to get a threatening email from BMW Canada telling me I must schedule a service appointment at BMW. First I have serviced my i3 myself during Covid as I am, 1) retired 2) cannot go anywhere so decided to do the routine service on my vehicles myself. If this is how BMW Canada ...

BMW i3 Apps

I have let my BMW connected drive subscription lapse and used to have a large clock display and local weather info displayed on the right hand side of the Nav screen. These were 2 of the BMW apps that could be downloaded from connected drive. Is there a way to get the larger digital display app with...

Re: Any trunk bike rack for i3? Saris Bone works?

I have the Torklift trailer hitch and a Thule swing away bike rack that I like very much. They just work.

Re: What is BMW Connectedrive (exactly)

I too never received any warning of subscription running out and I asked dealer when my weather widgets disappeared and they told me I needed a password reset to fix. When that did not work they told me to bring car in and they would fix. Then they told me service was only for 3 years and subscripti...

Re: i3 Tires - A disaster

+1 for bubbles in left front tire sidewall. No memory of hitting a pothole or anything other than normal road bumps. Replaced tire but kept tire that was replaced for ? I feel these tires are poorly made. I have not had a tire problem since the 70's until now. Feel Bridgestone should have warrantied...

Re: Canadian Price Buy/Lease/Finance - i3 2017

Thanks, yes I drove one in Seattle and was suitably impressed. There is a Mercedes dealer in Bellingham WA that could do warranty service fyi if required. Never got as far as asking for a price from BMW for cdn conversion. The i3's I have seen in the states seem to have DRL and chip key fobs so I di...

Re: Canadian Price Buy/Lease/Finance - i3 2017

I considered importing too, however I found a used (10 month old) CPO i3/Rex in Toronto that was priced right 14 months ago. I have imported from the states before and gone through RIV, DLR etc and the deal I got in Toronto was very good. The dealer looked after shipping the car from Toronto to Vanc...
