Re: So the interior door handle just broke

Update for anyone curious: Apparently this is an unheard of fault and the part isn't even available and will need to be "manufactured" or whatever. Could be 6 months. I have the car for 24 months from last November, so we'll see if it gets fixed before I turn it back in. At least the door will still...

So the interior door handle just broke

Like the title says, I went to exit the vehicle a couple of days ago and heard a loud "SNAP" when I pulled the door handle. I noticed a little while later that it no longer sits flush with the door and feels 'loose.' It's a pretty new '19 i3s REx with 5k miles on the clock. I have an appointment sch...

Re: I3 vs i3s new member

robthebold,

When I had a '17 with the sunroof, it wasn't carbon fiber. My new '19 s without the sunroof is though.

Re: I3 vs i3s new member

I would echo what the others posted. I had a non-S REx ('17 model) for 3 years and it was perfect. My *only* complaint about that car was the high beams. I live in a rural area and the pre-'18 refresh high beams were a JOKE. I replaced them with something brighter but they still sucked. And honestly...

Re: Next ICE car - advice

I only leased my i3s REx for 24 months. While I am really enjoying it, this is our second i3. I'll be turning it back in Nov '21 and I'm not super confident that there will be many other acceptable EV options here in the US at that time. Not wanting to do a third i3. I really like the look of the ne...

Re: BMW to build i3 until 2024

But still, is a slower, smaller, and lower battery range i3 really worth a premium of $5k over a Tesla Model 3? i3 U.S. leases are much less expensive than those of a Model 3. Thought you guys might like to see some comparos. I live in Arkansas, and we don't have any state-level incentives. I recen...

Guess it's time to get Bimmercode and an adapter.

Re: Heated seats, OMG!

Honestly I'm finding that even the low setting is too hot after just a few minutes. I guess maybe I'll appreciate them on those rare (and getting rarer) truly cold days here in the deep south.

Heated seats, OMG!

I have a 2019 i3s REx with Deka so it has the cloth seats. Holy cow, the heated seats are ridiculous! I had a '17 i3 with Tera and the leather seats were heated, but not like this. Anyone else with this set up find that their heated seats are a little too....exuberantly heated?

Re: Buy 2017 i3 vs. lease 2019

I had a '17 REx for 3 years and just recently took delivery of a '19 s REx. For the aesthetics of the exterior refresh, the new iDrive, and the actual (and amazing!) high beams, I would recommend opting for the new car. I loved driving the '17 for three years, but the new car is all that plus a few ...
