The spam here is insane!

The CAPTCHA must no longer be working right, either that or the registration system got compromised. There is just way too much spam on this forum. I ignored it at first, but they generated about 4-5 pages of garbage threads, burying the important ones. Someone needs to address the issue. BTW, who i...

Re: USED i3 questions

I must say that's surprising. Last I heard Deka world didn't show up in the USA until half way through MY 2016. The order and spec sheets for 2014/15 cars certainly do NOT have Deka as an option. This is certainly interesting. It's not totally out of the question, however, that BMW did a special dea...

Re: New to the i3 and new to EV's

It was difficult to find a 2014 i3 at BMW of Honolulu that did not have this useless option for those living in tropical climates, but I managed :D It's like the economy car, sure they're made if you look at the spec sheet, but when you go to a dealer's lot it seems like all of them have the premiu...

Re: Ohio EV tax

My state (Utah) is phasing in an EV use tax. $60/yr for BEVs, $36/yr for PHEVs, and $10/yr for "hybrids" (I would assume that means Prius?), this is only for the first year- the rates go up from there: (h) in addition to the fee described in Subsection (1)(b): 1850 (i) for each electric motor vehicl...

Re: BMW OEM Dash Cam

What's funny about that statement is that AFAIK, all U.S. i3s have the 20Ah AGM battery! But, it's 20Ah, which means that it's not going to be powering a dash cam for hours on end either. Something interesting would be if the i3's DC to DC converter can turn on while the vehicle is parked and in sta...

Re: BMW i3 Hard Crash

Ooo, I'm so sorry. I'm glad it seems everyone is okay. I'm really surprised that the frunk's contents were not damaged! Do you think you will be getting a BMW i3, or other EV?

Was the parking lot icy, so you slide into the SUV? Anyway, good luck with it!

Re: How to know when I can close my garage door when range extender is runnung

The cooling fan runs for a period of time after turning the REx off (I'm not totally sure why the extra cooling is necessary), I bet that's what you're hearing. As soon as you press the start-stop button inside the car to leave drive readiness, the REx turns off.

Re: Chevy Volt Discontinued

With GM and Ford (RIP Focus) discontinuing their sedans and other cars, this makes Chrysler-Fiat the last "American" manufacturer offering a full size sedan. The Volt was an interesting period in GM history. Its design was influenced by the 2008 economic recession. As far as PHEVs go, it was definit...
