Re: Warranty Showdown - CPO vs. Carvana vs. Carbiz

You missed one. The Carmax extended warranty/service plan (can be added when you purchase one of their cars), from reviews by other i3 owners, is the best around. Comprehensive coverage, all work done at BMW dealer, and paid for by Carmax, no question.

Re: Thoughts on cutting off 100% to account for lost capacity?

I don't think we have to live behind the rose-colored blinders that is a false 100% indication.
Except for it's not a false 100% indication. It is 100% of the battery available to you.

Re: Can't decide on buying the i3

Re: Remarkable end-of-lease buyout offers from BMWFS
