Re: What is a normal realistic range on an i3 Rex

I have a 2017 REX

Getting about 85+ in cold weather.
And 120+ in the Summer.

And, I have the REX just in case.
I have never needed the REX unit.

Car is doing better, since the last software update.
They updated the software, when they fixed the front airbag situation.

Doing great.

Re: Updated maps to 2018-1, no FSC code needed

Updated to 2018-1 maps.

I regret it.

Systems is no longer as stable.
Keep getting strange routing.

I purchased the lifetime code.
The system did not ask for it.

Looking forward to the 2018-2 maps.

Re: I accidentally bought the wrong i3

I have tried FAST DC charging twice.
Worked great.

You need a card.

I got free electricity in Oklahoma City

Re: Regen braking can be dangerous on icy roads

I have had good luck on ice and snow.

However, I would also like to turn off the regen.
It would make my driving easier.

Any suggestions?
Future change in the software?

All in all, the i3 is a pretty good foul weather car.
