Re: Rubber trunk mat

I have the Weathertech mat in back but have this to carry "slideable" stuff... https://www.walmart.com/ip/Greenmade-InstaCrate-Yellow-Black/54999388?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227056745365&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=161401414297&wl4=aud-430887228898:pla-270338647585&wl5=9030048&wl6=&...

Re: High Mileage 2017

I bought my 2014 BEV with almost 60k miles on it and haven't regretted it a bit in the 1.2 years I've owned it. If it's a REX, not sure if there will be more issues as the miles pile up.

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

First post again on here in a while. Over 63k miles on our 2015 REx now and we get 60 miles displayed at 100% on a cold 5 deg C morning in the UK. Summer morning display range tends to be around 72 miles on full charge now. That's down from 84 miles when it was new. My 2014 BEV has shown 85 on GOM ...

Re: Mini EV will kill used i3 prices

The i3 is a unique car that was ahead of it's time on initial release, and as a city car in a dense congested urban environment it is hard to beat. It is surprisingly spacious inside for it's size, easy to park, can turn on a dime to nab a spot across the street, and darts through traffic with agil...

Re: Fed up with my 94ah REX - 6 weeks!!

Just think about that. A car that goes about 85 miles max at a time, and I put over 10,000 on it in a single year. Mine is a mix of 65% highway and rest on city streets. Car rides smooth at 80 mph (yeah, I do drive that fast - gotta keep up with Phoenix traffic!) and HOV lane access is a plus. We'r...

Re: The longer look down the road

I think I'm going to contact Rich from Rich Rebuilds (the YouTube Tesla rebuilder). He just rebuilt an i8 and maybe he'll take on upgrading my 2014 i3 to a bigger battery. Then, maybe, BMW would take notice. Tesla took notice of him when he bought a used Tesla and showed all the ugly underbelly of t...

Re: Fed up with my 94ah REX - 6 weeks!!

People will ALWAYS post their complaints, but no-one is going to post "well, another 10,000 miles on the car, and no issues". Sorry, but that's me. Over 10,000 miles last year in my 2014 i3 and the only issue was the 12v battery. Car has been great and I have the BEV. I have to now remind myself to...

Re: Air conditioning failed

My 2014 BEV's A/C started to get weak after about two years of ownership. The dealer diagnosed the issue as a problem with the "refrigerant pressure temperature sensor 2", part 64 53 9 306 477. They evacuated the system and recharged it and it has been ice-cold for the past three years. Definitely ...

Re: Air conditioning failed

I love my car but now thinking that I might just sell it and get something else. Why not just take it in and get the AC checked out? Having the i3 AC fail, disintegrate, and destroy the system is pretty rare, like one in 50,000 cars. Most times, the AC pump just stops working properly, or there is ...

Re: Air conditioning failed

Well, i3Alan's ordeal scares the crap out of me! I have a 2014 BEV, from Champman BMW Chandler, that I've had for almost a year. The AC is not cooling like it should, and now I don't want the service department to even look at my car. Like Alan, I love my car but now thinking that I might just sell ...
