Were you able to try a different REx car? I suspect the first one had a problem.
I note , they are all noisy ( outside the vehicle) so, it would be perfect if a silencer can work.

Very loud REX - does a Motor Bike Silencer work?

walking around with the i3 Rex running, the motorbike engine is certainly loud enough to draw attention and annoy. If one drives past me, I would look around expecting what noisy bike. It would be interesting to know if anyone has researched into, or tried out fitting it with a suitable motorbike ex...

Re: Extended Warranty

Most aftermarket warranties aren't set up for EVs and don't cover the major expensive bits. Many also have small-print loopholes that let them weasel out of major repairs. For the i3, only 'good' warranties are the one from Carmax (they basically cover everything, and just have BMW do the repairs),...

Say, run a 32A+ cable from the...

In this case you get bugged by display warnings until you relent and top it up so it can complete a 60 days 10 mins mtce run, then it shuts up for another two months. Y...

Re: Very loud REX - any solutions?

Thank you so much MKH I still want the rex, but in some dilemma. Your rex is quiet. yet , which sounds very encouraging However , the Rex tested was out in the cold, and had 2-3% charge, A mechanic suggested that because it was cold, and with low charge, the moment the engine powered up, Auto-choke ...
