Re: BMW Connected drive 3G to 4G?

I agree with all points made by Richs. My hope is that having a 4g module already installed (if that is true) on my vehicle might make my i3's transition on ConnectedDrive from 3G to 4G easier (and less costly) when ATT's 3G network is shut down a little over a year from now.

Re: BMW Connected drive 3G to 4G?

I am hoping Art is correct about this. I purchased a CPO 2017 i3 Rex (manufactured in November 2016) to replace my 2016 i3 Rex about a year ago, and the ConnectedDrive connection for my 2017 is much more stable and quick when I use the App to communicate with the vehicle. I had many ConnectedDrive c...

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

There are two fairly informative online articles reviewing EV chargers that I uncovered: https://www.autoguide.com/top-10-best-home-ev-chargers And Tom Moloughney wrote a good article on the subject back in 2018: https://insideevs.com/news/341500/the-ultimate-buyers-guide-to-home-ev-chargers-plus-to...

Question about tire choice

Hello, I just read some older posts by i3 owners who installed 175/55r20 Ecopia 500 tires on the front 20x5 wheels and 195/50r20 tires on the rear 20x5.5 wheels with no spacers on any wheel. I wanted to know who has tried that combination without spacers and how well that worked out? Thanks for the ...

Screen Protector for i3 Infotainment Display

Has anyone purchased a screen protector for their i3's infotainment display? If so, I would be interested in knowing what brand you purchased and where you purchased it. I own
2017 i3 with the technology package that includes the larger screen. Thanks.

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: Odd coding problem

The fuel tank limitation was eliminated in the 2017 model year as the car received a larger battery with extended EV range.

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.
