Re: Software Update

Thanks,

Oil changes are easy and I don't a problem doing the brake fluid either (I have a brake bleeding hand pump.) I still want to drain and replace the transmission oil and have it tested.

Resetting the time-based, alarm, was covered once in the past so I'll need to look it up again.

Re: My Girlfriend Buys a New Car!

Owning both a Model 3 and BMW i3-REx, there is no real conflict. Both cars in "chill" mode or "ECO Pro" have nearly identical acceleration up to 65-70 mph.

Ignore user not working
