Re: Brake fluid replacement

Mine is due this month as well.

I bought an extended warranty so I guess I had better make sure it gets done to avoid any issues.

Re: steering Wheel became Hard to turn

Ya, I think I saw it listed on CL. I would love to speak to you about it but just a tad too rich for me. Sorry to hear about your issues. We are loving our used 2015 Rex that came from Cali. Almost a year now and not one glitch to speak of and we use for our business. We have been dealing with BMW i...

Re: i3 versus pedestrians accident near NYC today

I was thinking about the issues that have been floating around with the steering that suddenly wants to turn and if you are not on the ball to fight the steering wheel, the car can turn usually not when it is ideal to. i wonder if under the surface, the steering issue is also to blame. If so, BMW ma...

Re: i3 versus pedestrians accident near NYC today

It looks like this i3 is a newer version based on the silver strip along the hatch.

It is possible that this unit didn't come with the drivers assist options.

I hope that the injuries are not so bad that everyone survives!

On a positive note: The batteries didn't catch on fire!

That is correct RHS is the passenger side. We drive on the right side of the road :) Most of the time.

Re: Rear door open warning

Mine will show the RHS rear door open if I open it and then close it. I have to get out and give it a firm close to make the warning go out. The LHS rear door sensor doesn't seem to be as sensitive.

Re: Questions to ask the dealer

If you are buying from a none BMW dealer, that shouldn't be a problem. I went to BMW afterward and bought an BMW warranty to extend ours to 7 years. This was a bit of back and forth because our i3 was imported as well. Our's came from San Raphael and imported into Vancouver. I like your plan to powe...

Roof Rack?

So I finally saw an i3 with a roof rack that looks like it can carry a lot!

Re: Driving a 2017 bev 400 miles

If I were to drive a BEV this distance, I would bring my little Honda 2000 inverter along just incase I couldn't find any plugs. I could power my BMW portable charger but it would mean long stops but at least you could keep moving towards your 400 mile goal. Note: the little charger that comes with ...

Re: The spam here is insane!

Dont know of another i3 forum. Life is better without FB. Used to like FB before they went public. This is a very informative forum and it is a shame that spammers are here. Although, I was looking at getting a diploma from the University of Mars :) Perhaps a fee based forum would help weed out the...
