Re: BMW i3 side mirror repair costs

Did the same thing, reversed into a gate post. Glass broken and black plastic mirror chassis bit too. Took apart and only needed new glass and plastic chassis.

£65 for glass £30 for plastic but. Took about 30mins to change. Good as new.

Re: Faster driving question

I do an 86 mile round trip commute from near Swindon to Bath centre every day. 9 miles each end on fast A-roads and the big bit in the middle on M4 motorway. I have a 2014 BEV i3 with the heat pump. Right now in the summer, if I stick to 65mph on motorway bit, I can 'just about' use 50% of battery e...

Re: First Services in the UK

!!! - Was feeling daft having got the service element for my i3 lease £23 a month (x 36 = £828), however I've had two flat tyres replaced and will have one (1st) service this summer and probably another 2 tires from wear so working out not to bad. On the tyre front, could only get tyres from BMW dea...

Re: Having a tough time getting hold of tyres

Same story here - local BMW dealer in Hungerford, not an 'i' specialist, got one next day (just got car back today this is the second flat replaced in same way). Not sure on cost as it's a lease car so tyres are included in maintenance contract - Kwik fit etc were no use! BMW assist and lease means ...

Re: Bang, then shut down, drivetrain malfunction error.....

Sounds like the emergency battery cut off kicked in?!

I remember reading somewhere that in an airbag deployment situation the high voltage battery physically disconnects itself. Maybe some glitch caused this to deploy? Would explain the noise on breakdown too.

Why am I not just stepping away?

Re: THIS CAR SUCKS! - HAD IT 10 MONTHS, JUST GOT 42 MILES!

I reckon getting 42 miles is entirely possible - however ENGAGING WITH A SHOUTY OP AND THIER THREAD will likely be unproductive.

Walk away from the screaming click bait ....

Re: BMW I3 - Worst Steering Of Any Car I've Owned!

I think the negative responses might be due to the sweeping statements that were clearly incorrect to the many people, like myself (Absolutely DANGEROUS!, CoG), who totally nerded out on the engineering detail of the i3 prior to order and delivery. I do find it a little annoying when buyers remorse ...

Re: BLUE Cable

i3 BEV doesn't come with the blue cable - BMW price with VAT is actually as cheap as, or better than the other places listed - I like the auto curl-up-ness it has (automatically forms into a spiral), the bag is good to have too. Go blue!

Re: Rear hatch tail light glass cover stressed cracked!

Did your glass fracture due to stress relief (like mine) or did someone hit it? It looks like it stress relieved from the picture. If that's the case I wonder if BMW doesn't have a bigger issue on their hands than just the occasional anomaly... :shock: Nope, someone hit it while parked, then cleare...
