Re: BMW CEO to quit after carmaker loses early lead in electrics

It is entirely possible that BMW is unable to lead their existing customers into an electrified age. The multiple models may reflect customer intransigent that won't even consolidate on new models. How many existing customers did Tesla have ten years ago? The i3 in my driveway is my first foray int...

Re: Restore worn steering wheel?

A gazillion years ago when dinosaurs roamed the Earth and cars came with slippery plastic steering wheels, you could pick up cheap steering wheel wrap kits for peanuts at any auto parts store. Some were long/wide vinyl strips that you looped around the steering wheel like a bandage or taping the gri...

Re: NON OEM wheels & tires (wider)

I looked at AW once, and everyone there was more interested in clay bars and car shows than motorsports. Not my cup of tea.....

Re: We're alive / we're dead

One can only imagine how frustrating it would for the employees! I don't have to imagine. My DW is working in a situation right now where there are three levels of management all telling the staff to do different things. Most of her [millennial] co-workers are standing around their cubicles doing a...

Re: We're alive / we're dead

The confusion is probably a sign of poor management, lack of a unifying vision, and even some political in-fighting at the corporate level.....

Re: My i3 Got T-Boned

I remember seeing BMW's training videos online somewhere (YouTube?) for doing frame splices, which is why I knew that this wasn't going to be a cheap repair.....

Re: Decent Spare Wheel Rec

If you are actually considering the purchase of an old donut spare for $300...or buying a $230 Continental donut spare tire and a $260 Rial rim...why not just pick up the $140 front Ecopia on the $260 rim instead? If it were me, I would change both of my front tires a little early, mount one of the ...

Re: My i3 is Dead

Bimmercode does not do battery registrations AFAIK, but my search engine du jour indicates that iCarly does. Never used it, so I can't tell you what it does or how useful it would be for other things. If you want to go down the pirated Windows software rabbit hole, a few of my search results indicat...

Re: Serious problem with new BMW ConnectedDrive Website (USA)

Anyway, here is the python code for an interactive terminal interface to connected drive. There is a bunch of documentation in the code itself, so have a look there. I am _not_ 100% sure that posting this with "code" tags will work, so this is the test . . . The contents of the "code" block is miss...
