Re: Android my BMW App Now Available in Play Store

Unfortunately, the new App, in its current configuration, does not include any E-drive driving efficiency statistics. Hopefully, BMW will make efficiency information available in the new App before it shuts down the ConnectedDrive App at the end of June.

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

UPDATE-- I am able to renew online the ConnectedDrive services for another 12 months for my 2017 i3 Rex. It looks like they have combined some of their service package offerings into a single ConnectedDrive package for my vehicle. One strange twist to the story is that I cannot renew the ConnectedDr...

Re: Question about tire choice

The standard tire setup for the BMW i3 Rex (non-S) is 155 tires on 5 inch wheels on the front and 175 tires on 5.5 inch wheels on the back. 5.5 inch wheels will NOT fit on the front without adding spacers.

Re: Question about tire choice

The 195 size tires are standard on the rear wheels of the i3s Rex and the 175 size tires are standard on the front wheels of an i3s. So, I have installed the wider i3s tires on a i3.

Re: Wider tires w/ spacers on i3 ReX?

Based on my experience, 175 tires will fit on the front 5.0 inch wheels with adequate clearance between the suspension parts and the inside tire walls.

Re: Question about tire choice

I am going to answer my own question. I recently installed 175/55r20 Ecopia 500 tires on the 430 front wheels and 195/50r20 tires on the 430 rear wheels of my 2017 i3 Rex with no spacers on any wheel. This is the standard tire set used for the current version of the BMW i3s Rex. The installation wen...

Re: Economics of a Used i3 ReX

The moral of the story from the video is that the only sure way to get CPO warranty coverage for any BMW (including the i3) is to purchase a CPO vehicle directly from a BMW dealer and not from a private party who previously bought it as a CPO vehicle from a BMW dealer. Although BMW has a procedure f...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

I will report back in March on my efforts to renew the services. According to the previous post and the BMW Real OEM Parts website, a 4g telematics module was standard equipment in all i3 models produced after 6/2016 (i.e., starting with the 2017 model year).
