Re: Set a maximum charge limit

You can limit the charge to 80% via the app but it'll have to be done manually. Rule of thumb...every 1% battery charge takes around 2.8 minutes on a 7.2 kWh charge rate for the 94aH pack. Where can you set a charge limit of 80%? Do you have a screenshot? No you don't set it. You check the charge s...

Re: Sony EV???

Looks like they commissioned Tesla to design it. Not a fan of it.

Re: Metallic rattle sound from passenger side over deep bumps

Thanks for your thoughts. I was thinking suspension, but it's not any louder when the windows are down. The sound is definitely eminating from the interior. I took a look at the motor/engine cover and three of the neoprene nuts were destroyed (part #16: https://parts.bmwnorthwest.com/images/parts/B...

How do you stay fit and healthy during pandemic?
You act like a normal human being and don't buy into the bullshit.

Re: Metallic rattle sound from passenger side over deep bumps

I wonder how much it would be do to an all-around suspension maintenance on this car...i.e. say it's about 5 years old and change the struts, shocks, top mounts, etc.

Re: Returning Our Lease

Yeah none of those options panned out. Carvana low-balled us big-time.

We ordered a Tesla back in October just in case and it seems we'd be sticking with that. The i3s has been returned.

Returning Our Lease

Good luck man. Keep a video or picture journal of your work and progress. It would be interesting to see how it's done and what it takes to do it!

Re: iDrive Tiles - Locations Keep Resetting

Do you have two keys in use? I think each key has/saves it's own user settings profile, so if you set the idrive with one key, it won't be set that way for the other key. I'm the only one who drives the car and have only used one key. So I'm not sure what's going on. I definitely know it's not beca...
