Re: How often long should I run Rex?

I picked six months without any scientific facts. Is six months a good interval? I had issues with rex, dealership asked to run it once a month long enough that gas is recycled within 3 months. I have been practicing that for a year so far no issue except there is that feeling of guilt for polluting!

Re: Getting unhappy with fuel cover

Had the same issue but it was replaced under warranty. A month later BMW sent a letter stating the warranty on FUEL SENSOR is extended to 10 years.

This is such a common problem, BMW should address it at no cost, maybe check with them before taking the DIY route!

Re: Car doesn't switch over to REX.

Its best to hack just the range extender option, its pretty easy cost about $50 for both app and dongle.

On longer or unknown journeys i often kick Rex around 30% or higher so if it fails there is some juice to left to develop plan B

Re: Air conditioning failed

There are thousands of i3 drivers in this forum and in the i3 Worldwide Facebook group, yet only a tiny percentage of these drivers have posted about A/C compressor failures. If this were a really common problem, these groups would have far more posts about this problem. It may be specific to early...

Re: iDrive rebooting only when phone BT connected

Had the same issue on 15rex. Never had the issue before so it maybe related to the Android OS on the phone and since first week of January there was no reboot.

Re: ConnectedDrive

One of the first things anyone with this problem should try is pulling fuse #115 in the fuse panel located under the glove box. Leave it out for a bit, then reinstall. This reboots the cellular system, and has fixed the problem for many people, myself included! My car will now respond to commands f...

Re: Air conditioning failed

Took the car back in a week later when the parts were in, and got both the new rubber boots and the new AC compressor installed - for $0. Did you notice anything amiss (perhaps the sound) from the A/C compressor before you took it in, did you suspect it might be failing? Just like MKH, my wife told...
