2015 i3 Rex Maintenance after plan expired

OK so my maintenance plan is expiring this July and I am wondering if the i3 can be maintained at an independent place because the dealer is very expensive.
Beside oil changes etc what do I need the dealer for? Will getting it serviced elsewhere void my CPO warranty?

Re: Tire pressure sticker missing?

I got the low tire pressure warning a couple of days ago. Nonchalantly, I went to the gas station to put some air and, to my surprise, the sticker with the recommended tire pressure that my old '15 i3 (and almost every other car) had on the side of the driver's door, is nowhere to be found on my cu...

Re: fast charging options ?

Hello i3 people. Alex here (Naperville, IL) I just bought a 2017 i3rex - love it! Mine came with a level 1 charger (from a regular 110 v outlet)...charging super slow. The dealership offers chargers for 500 and up to 1300 not including installation (another $1000.) I have seen some level 2 chargers...

Re: Discrepancy in estimated range between guess-o-meter in car and Connected Drive app

I have been noticing that the estimated range showing on the guess-o-meter inside my 2016 i3 rex at the end of my morning commute is consistently several miles higher than the estimated range showing on the Connected Drive app at the same time. Isn't the Connected Drive app supposedly just relaying...

Re: North American used i3 price development

Hi all, I’m looking to buy an i3 before the next winter. Looking through listings, there are quite a few that are only selling once the price is substantially reduced, while the bottom end of the price range is sometimes pretty thin. It seems to me as if there is still a strong downward movement. D...

Hi Bob, I am in Los Angeles. I think I can upload a video when I get some time.
I even manually added the NHex Value 0X12 but no dice.

Re: Need hand holding on 2015 Rex Fuel Tank capacity

FWIW, changing that value doesn't do anything physically...it tells the computer that it can use more of the fuel that's already in the tank. The computer will shut the REx off when the sensor says empty...not because it really is. Changing the programming tells the computer it can use more and res...
