Possibly you need a new husband more than a new hood!!

Re: So the interior door handle just broke

6 months for a basic spare part???

All parts are available for your car - they build new cars out of 'parts'!!

Suggest you escalate your complaint until somebody gives you a sensible answer.

Re: To cancel or not

I thought we had just changed how monetary systems work!

Just print it out of thin air without limitation.

Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) - otherwise known as Magic Money Tree.

Re: To cancel or not

You probably have nothing to lose by cancelling. Delivery will be so far away given the shut-downs. As to what happens after all this shit - my opinion is that the manufacturers will drastically reduce supply to keep demand and supply matched so prices won't plummet. There are too many dealers depen...

Re: 2020 I3s Incentives

Yes - in Europe in 2020, zero emission vehicles count double in the emissions calculation that the EU does so I guess you are right - big incentive to satisfy EU demand. I ordered my i3 on 4 Feb and it was built on 7 Mar. (For UK). Quicker than I was quoted. That said we don't get the incentives tha...

Re: I’ve ordered it

Strange you have been quoted 4-5 months for delivery. Ordered mine 4th Feb and told delivery will be 6th April.

Of course that still has to happen - and there are plenty of stories about manufacturers running low on key components right now due to the C-Virus!! Not advised of any delays yet though.

Trunk Extension

How about factory fitting something like the Wokeby trunk extension as factory fit on BEV's?

For a car compromised on luggage space surely it is a 'no-brainer'?

Re: Auxilliary Heater

Never gets that low where I am so it will be used all the time. Glad that I have specified it. I noticed that in the UK the used i3's that seem to have the heat pump fitted are usually the ex BMW UK cars that are used for press events. (I guess they like to show the absolute maximum possible range f...

Re: New Order

Well I am feeling better about the 19" wheel/tyre choice already!! Yes I see that the 20" wheel has no winter tyre option - seems pretty incredible given that there is nothing available 6 years after launch!! Art - yes definitely got a Rearguard on the shopping list - maybe with a Weathertech boot l...

New Order

Well I have turned from i3maybe to 'i3 firm order'. Mine is coming at the end of March / start of April. Have specced up a standard i3 to just under the £40k list price level (above which there is more road tax in the UK). Managed to get all the options I really wanted within this figure and got a v...
