Re: Question on Brake Pads & Brake Fluid Change

Thanks for the feedback! I was thinking on the same lines to get just the fluid replaced. Will get the brake fluid done for the piece of mind. I tired looking for the brake pad indicator to see if I can spot the padding left but for some reason couldn't find it easier with i3 wheels. My mechanic sho...

Question on Installing Level 2 Charger @Home

Hello Everyone, We just got a delivery of 2017 BMW i3 94ah last week and are absolutely loving it. Glad we made a switch to the EV life. However, it comes with the added expense of installing the 240V outlet and getting a level 2 charger to make life easier. I have taken some quotes from the local e...

Question on Brake Pads & Brake Fluid Change

Hey Folks, We just bought a 2017 BMW i3 from a dealer and the service for brake fluid is overdue from over a year ago. Also, the brakes seem not so strong when trying to make a complete stop. The car has only 33K miles so I assume these are original pads on the car. Does anyone know how long do the ...

Re: Anyone had success ordering the 10.25" screen from Ali Express (or anywhere) recently?

Great! Good to have a reassurance on "bestnavy" seller. I think he has it for $514 now. I plan to buy it from him as well.

How much did you get it for and is it as easy to install as some of the articles suggest? I am looking forward to this upgrade. Thanks!

Re: Anyone had success ordering the 10.25" screen from Ali Express (or anywhere) recently?

I see this one for sale on Aliexpress and from the picture it seems like it is the same screen. Does anyone know? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000829388944.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000014.1.79084d5ey1pwiQ&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.14976.206800.0&scm_id=1007.14976.206800.0&scm-u...

Re: Anyone had success ordering the 10.25" screen from Ali Express (or anywhere) recently?

Hi folks! I know this thread isn't too old but thought I will check if anyone had any luck getting the 10.25" screens from aliexpress on anywhere else? I just got an i3 and first thing wanted to do was to change the 6.5 screen with the upgraded one but can't find any for sale (except the expensive o...

Re: Buying 2017 BMW i3 Out of State_Need Advice

Thank you everyone for your help in the process of purchasing the i3. I flew from Texas to Florida yesterday and after looking at the car, bought it right away! Checked all things that I could based on my research and the car looked absolutely gorgeous for 3 year old. From what I saw available on th...

Re: Buying 2017 BMW i3 Out of State_Need Advice

That’s a great suggestion. I confirmed on mdecoder and it turns out to be 94ah. Even more excited now to fly on Wednesday and take her for a spin. All the i3s I have been following on the sellers website around me have come down in price a bit. Seems like less demand but good for a buyer like me. No...
