Re: windshield sun shades

I have the Heatshield one too. I personally prefer it to the CoverTechs I usually buy.

My main issue was finding one that fit around the i3's ACC camera.

Re: Portable EVSE Recommendations

On the Tesla board it showed this - a NEMA 3R cabinet modifed to accepted a NEMA outlet, with hole cut for the cord, and can be completely closed when in use. The cabinet is even lockable - which would help prevent the Turbocord from growing legs and walking off during the night :roll: . Outlet box...

Re: Portable EVSE Recommendations

Now that I'm built(and rebuilt) a couple EVSEs, I don't think that many of the Chinese units are inferior to the big brands As for portables I would recommend buying one that can accept 120-240v , My current favorites are Dousida and Khons; those typically have TUV and UL certifications. But if you ...

Re: ConnectedDrive

I did what Bob did, because none of the remote functions on my app work anymore. While i can still check the range, location, and still connect it to alexa, everything else fails. I started to just schedule all my preconditions in the idrive, as my driving times are fairly consistent. If it keeps up...

Re: NON OEM wheels & tires (wider)

A gotcha, AW has changed a lot.

All the Motorsports enthusiasts left AW for QW, when it got bought out and changed formats, around 2010.
We used to do tons of track days back then.

Re: NON OEM wheels & tires (wider)

Are you by chance a AW or QWer?

I'm an old MK1 TT owner. I had a 2002 225 coupe with a Del Rio Stage 3 kit

Re: Unlocking frunk with bimmercode

Yes, you need to use expert mode. There are a number of threads on the subject, like this one: https://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5646&start=10 I think the 3rd button can easily be set up to do both the trunk and frunk; as each button is supposed to allow for 3 functions, within a Sh...

Re: Window Tinting suggestions

I haven't decided if I'm tinting the fronts, but for the rear windows, I'm going to use Solarpexius panels.

Re: Benchmarks: 2014 BMW i3-REx and Standard Range Plus Model 3

My Hold mode in i3 frequently fails or slips in steeper driveway slopes or hilly roads. Like its on for a second , and then the cars start to roll as if the brake was not effective enough. Is this a unique problem to me or is it common. Do i need to get it checked. Looks like a software issue Mine ...

Re: License SuperCharger

I don't find CCS too expensive, but it the pricing do vary alot. The only 2 I use are EVgo and Electrify America. I know EVgo can vary 10 to 15 cents a minute depending on the state. And near me there is not an initial connection fee. EA is typically higher and I don't know how it works in other pla...
