Re: Driving on Gas only.. Can I drive 200 miles

125mph wrote " have the 94Ah battery. 200 mile as in round trip. We driving to OC, spending 2 hours, and then driving back." Hey 125mph, I found the best way to to maximize your mileage on the i3 is to drive until your battery gets down to 75% then kick on the Range Extender "Hold State of Charge" ...

Re: Unplugging EVSE When Not In Use:

I have to agree, leaving my charger (EVSE) plugged in all the time makes the most sense for sure. I'm so happy with my level 2 charger (EVSE). Such a difference from the level 1 charger (EVSE) I was using. Plus I love the the fact that ChargePoint Flex has the app were can keep track of all your cha...

Unplugging EVSE When Not In Use:

Hi All,

Super excited that I just had my Chargepoint Flex charger (EVSE) installed in my garage. Do you guys unplug your chargers (EVSE) when your not using them, or do you just leave it plugged in all the time?

Re: i3 LED Headlights

I love the fact that they installed LED headlights on the i3. I work a lot of crazy shifts and late night hours. Having the LED headlights are soooooooooo good. Super bright and great visibility !! Thank You BMW :mrgreen:

Hey PanamaMike, I like to run the REX on my 2017 at least once a week for 10-20 mins. The good thing about coding your i3 is that you can use "Hold State of Charge" anytime...

Re: Embarrassed by the horn?

No, the horn doesn't embarrass me at all. I really don't even use it. I just yell at people when the windows down. Now that's embarrassing!! :lol:

Re: What's your favorite coding change?

Definitely having the "REX" kick in at any point below 75% SOC, such a cool feature. Also using the full "Fuel Tank" option. I mean a half a gallon of gas isn't that much, but on an i3 it's almost 20 extra miles just incase you need it. :geek:

Re: BMW i3 Reliability

Hey Guys... Thanks for the feedback regarding the i3 reliability. I didn't know that the i3 actually got a better score the the Honda CR-V for Quality and Reliability. That is great to know !! I'm really happy with the purchase of my i3. I ending up coding my i3 with the Bimmercode app to customize ...
