Re: Where to find Level 2 home charger ratings/reviews?

Screen Protector for i3 Infotainment Display

Re: How often long should I run Rex?

My recent experience with my new (to me) 2017 CPO i3 Rex has convinced me to continue regular use of the Rex (with the hold state of charge function) like I did with my 2016 Rex. The vehicle history information I received for my 2017 was that the prior owner almost never used the Rex and may have le...

Re: Remarkable end-of-lease buyout offers from BMWFS

I can affirm this. Last weekend, I purchased from a BMW dealer an end of lease CPO fully loaded 2017 i3 Rex with 22,000 miles for under $20k. Also, BMWFS was offering very attractive financing rates up to 72 months.

Re: Tinting the i3's Sunroof Glass

In my 2016 i3, I had Suntek CXP installed on all glass, and the film's heat dissipation/reflection properties were very noticeable inside the car on sunny days. I think I am going to go with CXP again.
