Re: Pre 2018 option packages $20k>

Looking at what's offered on sites like Carvana - it seems an average deal. Not great, but not out of line for the options and mileage, considering it has the BMW extended warranty. If they won't deal on price, ask for extras. If the tires aren't new, ask for new tires, BMW i3 frunk storage bag, fol...

Re: Pre 2018 option packages $20k>

Any chance to pick this combo up for around $20k or under? For a loaded 2018, depending on where you are, you are looking at sub $30K, not sub $20K. You 'might' be able to find a 2017 around the $20K mark in a private sale. Any dealer sales for a loaded i3, to stay in the under $20K range, you are ...

Re: Sound System Upgrade Information - Standard (NON-HK models)

I havent found a 12V source that would go OFF when radio turns OFF
Almost all the 12v circuits in the car go off automatically about 10 minutes after the car is shut down.

Re: small white triangle above battery symbol

It's a check control warning. Go to the center dash computer screen and look for Vehicle Info/Status to read the message. Most common, I think, is a reminder message/warning of an approaching "take me in for scheduled service" date.

Re: new household plug for level 1 charging - how many amps?

As long as you're getting a plug added, why not make it 240V instead of 120 Ditto that. If your electrical panel will support adding a 220 v circuit, it's not much harder than adding a 110. All a 220 is ( in the US) is two 110 circuits tied together - takes up two breaker spots with a double breake...

Re: 100% charge but under 50 miles range - 2015 REx

What is the current temperature? As the ambient temperature drops, so does your range because of the colder battery pack. Ideal operating temp for the i3 battery pack (and most batteries) is 77 to 105 degrees. Have you set preconditioning, which will warm the battery pack up before your departure ti...

Re: Replacement REX - BMW dealer quoted £10k for repair

My understanding is that is some USA States the REX motor and most any issues with it would be covered under the 15 year 150K mile warranty. I thought so to, but in checking directly with BMW-NA, this extended warranty is only as it relates to emissions. If the car/REx fails a State emissions test,...

Re: Maintain SOC - where (if at all) is the usage of REx stored?

Can BMW actually tell if we activate a feature and then turn it off? Is there history of coding/re-coding ECUs stored? I don't think there is a history of coding/re-coding, but there is a history of most of the component's operation, such as the REx. So if a component is recorded as operating outsi...
