Re: Seasucker Monkey Bars rack on i3

I have the Seasucker bars and have a non- sun roof Sparky but have not yet tried my 42 lb canoe on the rack. But maybe this summer and will post results. There are no easy points on bow and stern of Sparky to tie off the ropes to keep things centered on car. Looks like one has to use suspension poin...

Re: Columbus, Ohio i3ers

Thanks much. I know there are at least three other i3s around. Dealer says 20 but this may be overstated.

Mystery window lowering

Twice in 14 months I have had the windows on my 2019i3S go down of their own accord while car was either in garage or on street. It seems to relate to some feature of the panic button on the key fob. Any thoughts on how to avoid this happening? Many thanks.

12 volt battery in later i3s--watch out

Here is a story which might be helpful to some later model i3 owners. I have an i3S 2019, 16k, made Feb of 2019, so just 3 years and two months old. Most of the stories about the 12 volt battery seem to involve earlier cars, 2014-16 &c. Anyhow, I came out to my car in a tight garage the other mo...

Re: Question on Installing Level 2 Charger @Home

I have a 2019 i3s with the largest battery. It took 20 hours for a full charge at 110 volts from say 30 miles left with the charger provided with the car. I had the garage wired for 220 and got a 40 amp plug in Clipper Creek 2d hand on e-Bay which has has so far worked flawlessly. The work required ...

Ohio charging services

Would anyone have wise words on what charging services, charge point, Electrify America &c to sign up with in Ohio? Both of these have some so- so reviews nationally. Does Plugshare offer charging or only info about it? I also have a Tesla adaptor. Many thanks to all.

Winter tips in snowy states

Here are a couple of observation on winter operation. I have a 2019 i3S with the wider tires on the rear. This car was virtually undriveable last winter in the snow so I bought a set of Blizzak snow tires mounted on Riall German wheels from Tire Rack. The change from the wide rear tires to the narro...

Re: Moved to snow country - Need i3 snow tire knowdedge

Hello, I recently bought a set of Riall 19 inch black alloy wheels with Bridgestone Blizzaks from Tire Rack to go on my 2019 i3S (20 inch) during the winter. These come all mounted and balanced with the TPMS installed and ready to bolton. You can also get a factory wheel kit from BMW at close to the...
