DIY Maintenace

Any guides out there for performing maintenance yourself? I have the BEV model so I'm guessing it's more user-friendly.

Re: Removing the California HOV Stickers

So I used a hair dryer with almost great results. A little bit of that sticky residue is left. Can I use a

Thanks!

My wife's car comes with Android Auto and I love it. The BMW GPS is lacking by comparison. Is there a way to get Android Auto in this car? Mind you I don't hate on everything that the entertainment system has and would like to keep some functionality.


Thanks!

Removing water spots on the black-top i3

I have dried up silhouettes of what was previously water drops on my hood, roof, etc. I've seen some recommendations but can you recommend something that worked for your car?

Removing the California HOV Stickers

I have some HOV "Access OK" stickers on my i3 but I'm worried about damaging the paint or being permanently left with a silhouette of the decal if I try removing it improperly. Can you suggest anything that could help me remove it correctly?

Thanks!
