Re: i3 Accident Collision :(

So, having exhausted every other option, I bought an EOS tester.

Hopefully this will fix my problem. If anyone needs an EOS tester in the UK/Europe let me know and we can figure something out.

Re: Help; ista high voltage battery capacity test fail

Hi,

Did you ever solve the EoS tester issue? I think I need to do the same fix.

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

What about the cut off under the bonnet panel?? I've replaced the 12v battery and fixed the pyro connection, reconnected the service cutoff in the front trunk to no avail.

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

That sounds like a challenging project. How the battery will fit in the 2002? Check this thread, it has links to the best available technical information: http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5444 I'm hoping to the put the motor/gearbox/inverter in the back and the batteries in the front. T...
