Don't flame me for being reckless, it was all on private land with my own cars! Excuse the shaky camera though.
Except for the shaky camera Andy, I always park in the left front seat! :mrgreen:

Re: Does Eco Pro always make a difference?

In fact, an efficient driver that is driving in comfort mode will certainly have a better range than an inefficient driver using Eco Pro mode. I haven't done all the testing in all driving conditions and in all temperature conditions but I definitely can confirm what Tom says. Though ECOPRO mode do...

Re: I3 vampire loads when parked off the grid

I don't have specific i3 data but I have been in BMW e-mobility program for the past five years now driving the MINI-E and ActiveE and they haven't had any significant vampire load issues. My ActiveE for example will only lose about 1% to 2% state of charge if it's parked for a week without use. I ...

Re: Drivers side window & stormy weather

Hi Steve, Yup, same deal here in Fryslân! And it wasn't only the drivers side, this suction effect also affects the passenger side door, or in the UK the driver's side front door. :mrgreen: Besides the top of the door window being sucked off on the lea side, the door combination on the wind side let...

Very interesting thread and logical because the AC is in front of the passenger compartment too!

Re: Slight clonk soon after turning on

It's not happening nearly so often now - maybe once since I posted this up. Strange. Good to hear Andy! I've never had a klunk but have had the rear door "problem" once! It happened when waiting on my fellow passenger to pull something from the back seat just before leaving and she closed the rear ...

Re: What about the bike

I asked the dealer when I placed my order last week, and all he could tell me is that it is not in the system for ordering. Tom, could you check on this with your contacts? It would be an ideal way for my wife to get around campus. More pictures at this link: http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic....

Re: Rex: clarification.

Hello, my first post on My BMW i3.com I am here in Maldon Essex England and would love to own an i3 but would do without the REX. So I follow closely the arguments for and against the option. On this site somewhere I saw, if I got it correct, that the REX is not an option available in Norway. Why w...

Re: No Sunroof in the US: Confirmed

I've been thinking about this a lot, and it definitely isn't worth buying an i3 without a sunroof. The one saving grace of a car that most people (not me) think is ugly at first sight is how open the interior looks and feels. Taking out the sunroof does a lot to kill that. I want my next car to be ...

Re: Replace standard headlight bulbs with LEDs

Still the UK description does state: 5A2 Adaptive LED headlights - Featuring daytime driving lights with LED 'U' shaped BMW i design. Adaptive LED headlights improve visibility by following steering angle of the front wheels, giving better illumination of the road ahead through corners. Adaptive He...
