Wheel Paint Code/Color?

Anyone know the BMW paint code or color name used on the i3 19" 427 'pizza slice' wheels?

Re: Charge socket solenoid not a warranty item?!?!?

Just received a call from the dealership. They somehow determined that the solenoid was broken through my negligence, and therefore is not covered under warranty. Apparently inserting a charge connector into the socket constitutes negligence to them. :roll: What I don't get, is the attitude of this...

20" OEM Rims For Sale - Spare or Repair

Four 20 inch OEM rims for sale - two front rims, two rear rims - cheap! I hit the Grand Canyon of potholes and dented all four rims on the inside lip slightly. Tires mount and hold air, no vibration, I drove on them 'bent' for four months and never knew they were bent, until I was checking under the...

Re: New Owner Charging Questions

I assume that I would just have to purchase a cord such as this one? https://www.amazon.com/ICEr-J1772-Exten ... ecarfor-20& No, that is just an extension cord for an existing 220 charging station. It is for if your charging station comes with a 25 foot cord, which works great when you are parked i...

Re: New Owner Charging Questions

So it sounds like I need a 20 amp circuit for Level 1 charging?
Most house wiring is 20 amps. Check your breaker panel, unless your house is really old, and the panel hasn't been upgraded since the '50s, all your plugs are on 20 amp circuits.

Re: Windshield glass replacement - safelite ?

Would you be able to share a link to that information?
It was in a doc on getting a Dealership body shop i-certifed for repairs to BMW i8 and i3, but have not been able to find it again. The location I thought it was on, no longer has it, so maybe was not supposed to be 'public and was taken down.

Re: New i3 REX owner!!!

I had a Clipper Creek 110 charger. When I started finding that the cord near the socket was almost too hot to touch, and you could smell hot plastic as soon as you walked into the garage, it put me off them (and was the Clipper Creek charger not the socket, as I changed the socket out to a commercia...

Re: Windshield glass replacement - safelite ?

I have used safelite last summer and have not had any issues yet. That's good to know. Did you use one recommended by your BMW Dealer, as having expertise on i3's? Have not been a fan of the local Satellite franchise. They changed out a windshield in my son's classic Volvo a few years ago, did a cr...

Re: Remove/disable charging plug lock?

Try locking and unlocking the doors a few times. Some people have reported that reaming out the locking pin hole slightly, and/or lubricating the pin with WD40 helps. Also check that it isn't the release on the charger handle itself, where the button on the handle is not pushing down enough to relea...
