Re: Service threat from BMW Canada

I was shocked yesterday to get a threatening email from BMW Canada telling me I must schedule a service appointment at BMW. First I have serviced my i3 myself during Covid as I am, 1) retired 2) cannot go anywhere so decided to do the routine service on my vehicles myself. If this is how BMW Canada...

Re: A vs M in Climate Control

I did a little digging and apparently the filters are part of the BMW Care Package for cars 2017 and newer. That coverage of course is 3 years/36000 miles.

Re: A vs M in Climate Control

How often are you supposed to change it? The good ones seem quite expensive.

With the fires we had out here lately in So Cal, I'm tempted to do so even though I've had the car for less than a year.

A vs M in Climate Control

I was reading up on the difference between modes on the climate control system and wanted to know what people's thoughts are between setting the recirculation modes....A, M, or no light on at all. A mode, if illuminated, is supposed to detect external pollutants and automatically close off external ...

Re: What does your "miles to empty" show when full?

Also, a pretty easy rule of thumb for calculating MPG for an EV is to simply multiply 33.7 x your mi/kWh x 0.75 for losses and inefficiencies. The sweet point for my car on the freeway is about 65 MPH. I average 5 mi/kWh on a flat road, constant speed. I just bought a 2017 REX model a couple of week...

I've a 2019 i3s Rex. I've seen as high has 230 miles after full charge...not including the Rex range. Obviously I've not ever gotten that mileage on a full charge but I'm average 4.7 mi/kWh.

I’ve had that happen after cleaning the seat. Once the fabric dries, it should go away.
