Re: Car cannot start at all

If your car still has its original 12 volt battery, your problems may be caused by a 12 volt battery failure. They tend to fail within 4 or 5 years, and, when they do, the car becomes completely inoperable.

Re: Upgrade dashboard trim to Wood

Removing the existing trim and installing the wood trim is pretty easy to do. Using basic auto trim tools, it took me about 10 minutes to complete the removal and installation. The YouTube video mentioned on this thread was very useful and informative.

Re: i3 Towing Procedures?

Also, if a flat bed tow truck is not available, I would think that towing an i3 with one axle lifted and the other axle running on dolly skates would be acceptable.

Re: Replaced Deka Silver trim with Dark Oak Wood Trim

The dark oak wood trim kit is no longer available to order through BMW North America, and it is currently in very short supply in the UK. I have placed several orders through a variety of online parts suppliers in the US and Europe, and all have been cancelled due to the wood trim pieces being out o...

Re: Replaced Deka Silver trim with Dark Oak Wood Trim

agzand,

From which company did you order the wood trim pieces?

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.
