Catch back up with Hyundai

So for around £36k I can buy a Hyundai Kona with near 300 mile range, lots more tech than the i3, a bigger boot and a 5 year warranty! That is why I will not be buying another i3 as it is simply overpriced and lacks up to date tech.

Re: Key FOB battery

Using the key with the new battery still showed the warning when I went out this morning. However, I locked the car with the remote (instead of using comfort) on arrival and unlocked it again with the remote when I left and the warning has not come back!

Re: Key FOB battery

Just had the low battery warning come up on my key! I remember that the last time I had this when I changed the battery the warning did not go away until the next day. Strangely, both of my keys are showing the warning. I have changed the battery in one key and the warning has again remained. Now I ...

Re: Key FOB battery

When my car tells me the key fob battery needs changing i have always used it for days afterwards without a problem so did you ignore the warnings? I use the manual key in the fob that you remove as part of the battery changing procedure to open the fob - no screwdriver etc needed. See https://www.y...

Re: Any one here ordered a Tesla Model 3?

I ordered 1 about a year ago expecting to get it on late 2019 early 2020! That is why I have ordered an Ioniq EV for this Sep when my i3 lease ends. Could not warrant the expense of an i3. Too much money for too few miles.

Re: i3 Recall

I find it very disconcerting that BMW want to install new software without being able to tell us what is being changed!

Re: Stop sale affecting used i3 pricing?

In fact, I think the whole i3 line (even the new ones) now compete poorly with the Chevy Bolt and the Tesla Model 3, even just in terms of range. Therefore the amount I am personally willing to spend on an i3 also goes lower and lower! Don’y forget the Hyundai Ioniq - greater range, more tech and c...

Yes a tin with a lid works perfectly well and you can test it exactly as you surmised.

Re: Clunking noise when going over bumps

If its under warranty take it back to the dealer. Not noticed this on my i3.
