Re: Some random thoughts about our i3

JohnWasser's posting surprised me a bit.... I too have/had a 2002 MiniCooper S. I put 170k on it and have just given it to my nephew's daughter. My garage space is small because of shelving on both sides. I have had to modify my side to fit my 2017 i3 REx. Even though parking in the garage is a new ...

Re: replacing windshield -- any BMW service needed after replacement?

BMW SF called me back and let me know that re-calibration is about a half-day exercise. About $250. We will find out.

Re: replacing windshield -- any BMW service needed after replacement?

Ok. Picked up the car yesterday and spoke with the lead tech assigned to replacing my windshield. He claims that they have done a lot of BMW's (including) i3's at the Redwood City location. Looks like new and the edges look clean. BMW logo on the glass near VIN. No car washes (i use spray bottle les...

I believe that i am one of the first (if not the first) to have an i3 windshield replaced at the Safelite-Redwood City location. Say prayers for me please. Let's hope my evening post will be a happy one.

Re: replacing windshield -- any BMW service needed after replacement?

Update #2 Safelite CANNOT re-calibrate all of the safety features in my i3/REx. They use a tablet that hooks into the OBD port. The VIN search and the basic BMW i3 search did not produce any results. I just confirmed with Lynx (State Farms sub-contracted glass repair paperwork folks) that i can use ...

Re: replacing windshield -- any BMW service needed after replacement?

eNate --- Short answer is YES. State Farm confirmed 2 things. 1. Since the i3 has advanced driver assistance, State Farm will reimburse in full a BMW recalibration. 2.
