Re: Rattling noise around trunk/rear interior panel removal

I had to remove my 'hatch cover' to remove the rattles in right rear. Didn't realize there was another location for those problems. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/i01-i3-hat/ned/03-body/01-noise/noise-from-rear-area/repair-instructions-i01/ Specifically, this is what got my attention to my rattl...

Once the hardware signature was read off of the i3, I sent the files to their email address and got back...

Re: Bavsound install Tutorial and Review (replacement speakers worth your while)

Here in the Chicagoland area we have many large, respected installers. Would you trust a car stereo installer to tear into these doors and do the job. I would love to upgrade my basic system in my i3. Doug - out I would trust just about anyone to do the job. I swapped out the speakers in my i3s in ...

Re: iSeal for Frunk

Super cool!

I went with a 'sealed bag' from Amazon to store my tire plug kit, charger, etc as the debris and water was ruining everything in the frunk. The bag certainly works but I lost out on some extra space...

Re: Bavsound install Tutorial and Review (replacement speakers worth your while)

Fantastic thread, what a great job walking through the installation. I love the pictures and the close ups as well as the text you provided. Bravo. I installed Audison 2 way components (tweeter pods from Focal on the door card) and it went close to the same as your installation. On a side note, Deka...
