Re: Parking Assist not available on the 2020 i3 models

I think the addition of the fender flares actually covers the area that the sensors would be , therefore all i3s and also i3 with suspension and 20" wheels will not have Parking Assist .

Re: USB memory stick , playing music

So it turns out that both my 2016 and 2020 can play FLAC and all metadata stored in it will show . There are plenty of free converters available .

Re: Regen and creep operation?!

Re: Repair suggestion

I don't quite understand . If you were hit then wouldn't the insurance of the car that hit you be covering the cost of your damage ?
