Re: Buying a Private Party 2015 i3 Rex with 68K miles. Good Idea?

I live in So Cal with a drive of 36 miles RT. The car I'm buying has been driven on Rex a lot as are others in Socal. I'm getting this for 11.5K.
Other than reading about issues with 2014 model Rex cars, I thought the later model Rex cars were solid? Is this not the case?

Buying a Private Party 2015 i3 Rex with 68K miles. Good Idea?

I am planning on buying a fully loaded with all options i3 Rex with 68K miles. The car has been maintained well and has 3 more months of CPO left. Should I be staying away from a car this high in miles? I used to own a 15 Rex but sold it last year and have been missing the car ever since. Should I b...

How long do you plan to keep your I3?

Now that we know BMW will not be making these anymore, what do you guys intend to do with yours? Although the car is low maintenance, there still are a lot of moving parts. Wheels, bushings, discs, pads, suspension, steering, etc. If there are no independent manufacturers of these parts, then we wil...

Re: anyone in phoenix/tempe have a obd coder?

Hey i’m looking to see if anyone in the phoenix area has a obd2 coder i can use with bimmercode. Borrowing it would be ideal or i can purchase it off of you! I have an unplanned out of town trip and would rather code the vehicle and drive it than rent a car. Thanks! Why not just buy on Amazon? $20 ...

I don't know but looks like BMW used all the leftover Intel Pentium Processors in the I3. From 1994! :)

Re: Navigation: Eco Pro routes, and BMW's paramaters...

Speaking of the GOM, I've often heard and read that it's based on the last 18 miles or so. That is absolutely not true. At least in my observation. I drive back home from work, a total distance of 18 miles. Stop and go. Plenty of regeneration. I am happy because when I park the car, it shows I still...

Re: Navigation: Eco Pro routes, and BMW's paramaters...

If you are not paying for this real time traffic update then it's OK i guess. IMHO, the BMW software that comes with the car is a joke. For example, my fully charged car shows a 78 mile range. I set a destination in the car's Nav and the GMO now all of a sudden after 4 miles of driving shows a range...

Re: No Parking Assistant for i3s variant?

Yes, the flared front fenders prevent the side-facing ultrasonic sensors used by Parking Assist from being installed in their normal location. However, at least 1 i3 owner who installed S fender flares on his non-S i3 was able to relocate these side-facing ultrasonic sensors to preserve Parking Ass...

Do anyone know how to code to activate the tail lights on the rear bumper?
I wonder if that can be done. Those come on when you open the trunk I think. But it would be cool to activate them full time when the main lights come on.

Re: Announcement about BMW i3 future

Yeah but I couldn't care less about what else BMW is going to offer. I am more worried about "my i3". If the production stops then we are at the mercy of BMW for every little problem or part needed to get the car fixed. Mechanical or otherwise. Should we sell the i3s and get whatever value we can? I...
