Re: 2014 i3 REx - Battery Degredation

Yes, the KLE and motor mount bolt were fixed during software updates. The break fluid was replaced once. There were 3 or 4 times that the drivetrain malfunction light came on while driving.

I try to make sure to add air to tires and read PSI when tires are cold. If I can not do so, I try to add air to get a couple of PSI above recommen...

Re: harman kardon soho wireless headset

My i3 has the HK audio upgrade. Makes sense for BMW to only send headphones to i3 owners with HK upgrade.
