Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty

bitttersweet.

There were folks reporting last year that a previous version of ISTA allowed to affect the kap. wonder if this is what they did?

I would keep checking to see if the kap stays the same.

Re: Paint issues black parts

Hi all, We're very (very!) happy with our i3 (driving around the Netherlands). Only thing I've noticed is how delicate the black paint (mostly on the hood and the back) is.

Re: Junkyard Wheel, Wrong Size! :(

The inside of the rim should have the number, where it says 5.5Jx19, there should be soon a trailing IS number. that is the ET IIRC
