Re: We're alive / we're dead

The irony would be if they replaced the staff with AI...and it started tossing the managers out of the pod bay door due to conflicting instructions..... :mrgreen: Dave: [sternly] HAL, I won't argue with you anymore. Open the doors. HAL: [monotone voice] Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose ...

Re: EV Extended Warranty Coverage

is there really a need for a extended warranty beyond that? For most, the answer is likely no. Companies make money on the extended warranty because they know most will never be used, or won't pay out what they cost to purchase. And most 3rd party extended warranties are a crap-shoot. Almost all on...

Re: We're alive / we're dead

The confusion is probably a sign of poor management, lack of a unifying vision, and even some political in-fighting at the corporate level..... Hit the nail, I think. And pretty much can be laid at the feet of out-going CEO Harald Krueger. The previous CEO, Norbert Reithofer is the one who champion...

Re: Heater?

Forget running the 20" summer tires in the winter snow. Or on any streets with potholes :| The 19" all-seasons work well all year, the 1/3 more sidewall height protects against pothole damage to both rim and tire (bent all 4 of my 20 " rims, and put 'pinch' bubbles in the side walls of two of my 20...

Re: windshield sun shades

I bought this one, and it fits. Bit of space around the mirror-mount, but think that's to make it quick and easy to put up and take down without constantly knocking your mirror out of alignment. Comes with a black nylon storage bag. Here in Texas we get some sun/heat in the summer (95 to 100+ degree...

Re: My i3 is Dead

I dug around a bit more and it does appear that Bimmerlink does battery registrations, Although it says so on the web site (or did), when I checked with the developer a few months ago, after reading a posted complaint from a Bimmerlink purchaser that battery registration in fact did not work, I was...

EV Extended Warranty Coverage

A Tesla-owning friend let me know of a new company doing an extended warranty program specifically for electric cars, called X-Care. Seems like a good idea, as most standard 3rd party extended warranty programs I've seen have fine print that usually says something like "high-voltage battery, and any...

Re: Air conditioning failed

My car is nearing end of warranty and i think i will end in same situation as OP. I think I'd be calling BMW NA, and point out the similarities with other AC systems which have subsequently had the AC compressor fail catastrophically, and require complete replacement of the entire system at a cost ...

Re: Air conditioning failed

I know nothing about a/c systems. Is there a filter on the i3's a/c system just prior to the compressor that can remove contaminants like metal? If not, is there such a thing that can be fitted if/when a new system is installed? No, there is no filter I am aware of in the i3 AC system. Yes there is...
