Re: We're alive / we're dead

I look at all these stories as just so much clickbait. Am I the only one who recalls the PR from six years ago where the i. division was positioned for innovation principally? The i3 launch stories laid out a plan for the i. vehicles to commercialize new tech in low run volumes. Then the more succes...

Re: Charge while on vacation?

Fair point. Living in coastal California, I forget about cold weather issues since we never experience them.

Re: Charge while on vacation?

I don’t think it matters. BMW intentionally set the usable capacity of the battery below the actual capacity to avoid the durability issues from extreme overcharge and discharge. In addition, the charging circuits shut off when the useable capacity is reached. Maybe I’m cavalier but I’ve come to thi...

Re: Where'd My Battery Go???

Not the setting Oleksiy mentioned. Activate… is on the goodbye screen and will turn on climate control for up to 30 minutes as soon as you exit the vehicle. It’s handy for short stops when you’re running errands because the cabin will be comfortable when you return. Preconditioning is found under Se...

Re: Early 2016 i3 - ipod touch weirdness

Totally understand the frustrations you’re having. I had a similar experience trying to make my iPhone interface with iDrive. Not sure if the issue is with Apple or BMW. Regardless, I gave up. Now I just keep music on the internal hard drive. Use an old iPod nano connected to USB for podcasts. When ...

Re: Tera and Smokers package

The ashtray makes a handy storage container. It’s a tall-ish cylinder not unlike a reusable cup with a flip top. Mine lives in the second cup holder under the armrest. I stash napkins and those long green splash sticks from Starbucks in mine.

Re: Brake fluid replacement

The two-year brake fluid replacement is required maintenance for all BMW models—not unique to the i3. Also worth noting that the two-year sequence starts with your vehicle’s manufacture date not the in-service date that triggers the warranty/maintenance plan period. My E90 3–series was assembled in ...

Re: Accessories Still Active

I believe the message appears if a door (either driver or passenger) is opened before pressing the Stop button a second time.

Re: Spare tire situation

Since I'm sure that nobody (outside of the BMW dealers) keeps the i3's unique tires in stock locally, I would just have it towed to my friendly local tire shop and get a ride home to grab another tire. (*) * When installing new tires on any vehicle, I always stash the best of the old ones in the ga...

Re: Sound System Problem

Did you import the contents of USB 1 or were you playing files directly off the USB drive?

Based on your description, I suspect the former. Go to the menu where you select the source and make sure you activate USB. Then you should be able to import the new tracks.
