Re: i3 insurance rates

Shop around! My local agent quoted me a price that was 3 times higher (not kidding!) than the policy I ended up getting from Geico. Some of the smaller insurers charge a huge premium for the i3.

Re: KHONS replacement EVSE review

So you're going to plug in your $54,000 car into a $200 Chinese charger? I sure wouldn't.

Re: Extended Warranty for BMW I3 Rex

I've read (on this and other sites) that it's hard to find a dealer that will do work under that warranty unless it was specifically an emissions problem.

Re: Can coding corrupt the i3's operating system?

I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere, but I could not find it... when you change the point at which the REX kicks in, can you change it back to 7% with the push of a button, or do you have to change the coding parameters every time? I would keep it at 7% most of the time, but wish to be able t...

Re: 2014 I3 with15,000kms showing 19.3 kWh battery

I have a 2014 and my battery is in excellent condition. Ask the dealer to fully charge it. At room temperature my car has a range between 112 and 130 km. The colder it is, the lower the range. It's hard to measure. There's a Batt Kappa thing you can try too, but that's notoriously unreliable. Here's...

Re: Extended Warranty for BMW I3 Rex

I feel your pain. After seeing all the awful reports of failures on Facebook I have sleepless nights wondering what's going to happen to my i3 when the warranty ends in two months. I guess I'll "cross that bridge" when I get to it.

Re: Buying Used, Out of Warranty i3

I was talking about BMW's extended warranty, which is 3 years 50,0000 miles in the US.

Buying Used, Out of Warranty i3

I love my i3, sadly it goes out of warranty in a couple months. I've been freaking out reading about drive train errors, check engine light errors, and sheared engine mounting bolts, as well as worn/popping tires, an eggshell of a windshield, glass rear end that can spontaneously shatter, and the ou...

Re: Is this a good deal for a 2014 Rex?

It's a CPO, so yes, that is a good price. The only concern I'd have is that I think the CPO warranty on the i3 runs out after 50,000 miles, so you won't be under warranty for very long.

Re: BMW i3 auxiliary battery sizes

My battery will need to be replaced within the next 6 months if not sooner. Has anyone found a 40 ah that will fit?
