Re: New Owner from Denver!

Thank you for welcoming me! I would definitely check out FB. I will check both JB and CC systems. Yeah I agree about the highest rated breaker. What system do you have at home if you have one setup? Personally I prefer to use the JuiceBox Pro 40, and I test & write reviews for charging stations. Ta...

Re: Aftermarket Warranty

How much if you dont mind me asking? The extra warranty cost us about $3,800 CDN which they added onto the existing 4 year warranty. So about $100 per month as a comparison to your quoted amount. We just paid for it outright and since it is with BMW and not a third party carrier, we feel pretty con...

Re: Aftermarket Warranty

That seem pretty high. When does your factory warranty expires? Mine is 2015 as well and I have until Jan 2020 and will be using that in the meantime. What is covered for the quote that you got? Rex seem to have more issues than BEV (which I got and no regrets) so you may want to have coverage.

Re: DC Fast charging makes a difference?

Did I figure out how the i3 suppose to be driven or is it the DC fast charging? The only way DC fast charging might have improved your range is if your battery pack had been cold before charging and was warmed by fast charging. Otherwise, from the battery's perspective, electrons are electrons no m...

DC Fast charging makes a difference?

As the subject shows, does it make a difference in terms of range and efficiency? First time I used it this morning at a public station. And for the first time, I noticed a difference in my range and battery consumption (shown below). How I drove this time: I started with 4th battery bar being at 1/...

Winter set on and questions

Hello so I finally mounted my winter set with Bizzaks. For those of you who have these set or similar with 19" wheels, do you guys have lowering springs and/or spacers? What brand would you recommend? Gap becomes huge when I switched from 20 inch wheels. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rz6o3uq8go6kj8u/3.p...

Re: Tire issue is frustrating. Need help with spare options...

So it happened on the freeway driving home. Went over probably a sharp blade like object and it resulted in a nice 2 inch gash. Tire repair was out of question. No one here in Los Angeles had this tire in stock. Rear passenger side. It held enough air to drive me back home but ow it's completely fl...

Re: New Owner from Denver!

Just an update. My friend referred me to someone who is getting rid of his BMW Wallbox Pure less than two years old for only 30% of the original cost. Will check it out first to see if that would work. Simple EVSE works for me even without wi-fi as long as it is level 2. You guys have any reservati...
