Re: Steering issue

Our 2016 was getting a bit stiff in the steering . It was determined to need upper strut mounts . After replacing them , the steering is back to normal .

Re: TMPS not working

You can also look at the valve on your wheels to determine whether you have TPMS or your i3 uses the ABS sensors to compare rotation rate Left to Right . The TPMS valves are metal with a nut securing them at the base . The others valves are rubber .

Re: New i3s (with pics) now what winter wheels/tires?

The different suspension specs call for the different offset of the wheels . The engineering sets the pivot point of the front wheels in the center of the contact tread (described as scrub radius) . Using the correct offset wheels is the only recommended setup .

Re: A Neat Way to Transport Hydrogen

The overall transporting itself is the same logistical issue that current fossil fuels face . We need to consider , not only the carbon footprint of the fuel we use but also that of the fuel used to logistically deliver it . For fossil fuels that starts at the oil well , then the refineries burn som...

Re: Things I Dislike About My i3

I've mentioned this before . Because of the higher ride height and narrower wheel base combination , whenever there are uneven undulations in the road , it might seem that the car is being pulled off course when in fact it tracks perfectly straight with steering wheel left in the center . When the c...

Re: Help with understanding Range Loss over time

I personally won't give my username and password out . I don't mean to say that they aren't legitimate but with systems getting hacked continuously I would not want access to my vehicle to get into the wrong hands .

Re: Compass in the Mirror

Re: can I charge the 12v battery through the 12 v socket?

I think the answer is No . The 12V sockets time out and turn off when the car is turned off , so they must be controlled somehow . Hence they are not connected directly to the 12V battery . Below the 'Frunk' , 'Trunk' (and 'Gas Filler' if you have a Rex) buttons there is a small pop open cover that ...

Please fix the Shuffle/Random software .

My 2016 i3 has a checkbox for 'Random' . With music on a USB memory stick this Random function works as the description would suggest . After playing a song in the chosen group or list , the next song to play will be any song in the group or list including the song which just played . The same happe...
