Re: Sunshades for the windshield that work

This is the one I found - sorry for the cr@py pic, my driveway is shaded by a large tree. I have (had) tint all around, including the front windshield - came with the car when I bought it. I removed the windshield UV tint - was top-of-the-line stuff, but it was still like looking through cheap plast...

Re: Breakdown of Maintenance prices?

In case it ever comes up in Trivial Pursuit, I just paid the dealership $329 (with tax) for the scheduled 2-year brake fluid change and checkup inspection
Thanks, mine is coming up in July, same thing - new to me car, and was wondering what to expect.

OE BMW Jack Set 71-10-2-182-448

Have been looking for a while for an 'emergency' jack for my i3, which would fit in the frunk, found this one, but could never find a U.S. supplier that carried it anymore. The jack head is made to fit inside the BMW plastic jack points under the car. And this fits the i3 jack points perfectly. Come...

Re: Remove/disable charging plug lock?

Seems this was a known issue with i3's built between August 31, 2014, October 25, 2014. To the point it was posted as a Defect Bulletin with the NHTSA May 2015. You might show the dealer this: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2015/SB-10058477-5912.pdf This is the part the guy in the UK video was in...

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

Any good independent BMW service garages in your area? I'd be inclined to show them the UK video, and see what they would quote. Even though my i3 is still under warrantee, all my service gets done at an indy garage, as, like you, I'm not the first owner, so the BMW maintenance doesn't transfer. I j...

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...
