Re: I'm a newbie.

Be wary of the Facebook groups. There is a lot of whining and talk of "coding" your car to defeat the intent of BMW and it's EV functions. There is some good info out there, but just be careful with the information. I am a member of the largest Facebook i3 group, and there is not much whining ;) Th...

Re: End of production

So I talked to the dealer. He said that our area (not sure if he meant Mid Atlantic or the entire East Coast) isn't getting i3 allocations by default- only by orders. He said that the orders are open until October, and he has no info on what is coming afterwards. He made me a nice offer- I could co...

Re: End of production

During the last 12 months our local BMW dealers had essentially NO i3 in stock, and in the last month now...they all have 2-4 in stock, including i3S and even a few BEV (although most are REX). Similar at BMW of Honolulu which has 1 i3 and 3 i3S, all 2021 models. Either BMW of Honolulu has finally ...

Re: End of production

MKH, I haven't been to my dealer in a long time – it's really disappointing to hear that the ones in your area have switched to order-only. This has been the issue for the last year or so - but may have been exacerbated by the COVID BMW plant shutdown. Was pleasantly surprised to actually see two n...

Re: My first 24 hours with a 2020 i3s REX

I am on i3S #2 and the FIRST thing I did on both was 3M Ceramic window tinting on E V E R Y window including the sunroof! The i3 is a hot box without ceramic tinting. Also, the car will look even better and super cool when tinted. It makes a huge difference. MUST tint windows!! My first i3S was Dek...

Re: Remote lock/unlock and Climatization doesn't work

Has you car been officially added to Connected? FYI, supposedly BMW Connected app is shutting down in June, so to play it safe I got the MY BMW app (same log in used). You can use and run both on your iOs or Android phones. My past 4 BMWs with Connected became active right away at the dealer when I ...

Re: Android my BMW App Now Available in Play Store

My BMW is available for iOS too. I got it yesterday. I greatly prefer the look, layout and performance of BMW Connected. Connected is set to die in June :( I’m hoping for Apple Watch compatibility soon. And more eDrive data gathering and crunching. But the app looks more modern. YES...sad they remo...

Re: Pre-heating the battery, not just the cabin.

Yes, if you're plugged in (even to 120 volts), and have a departure time set at least 3 hours in the future, the battery will be warmed. At 120 volts, because the load is greater than what's available through the cord, the battery will be used to make up the difference. It's not much though, maybe ...
