Re: Uk ecotricity charging

Ecotricity also give me a £40 discount per year since I own an electric car. In addition, they now let me use their CCS pumps for free. These figures are not included in the above costs and would lower them even further. I also own solar panels (generation effect is not included in the consumption ...

Re: i3 Rex with halogen headlights

I've already acquired a set of after market LED bulbs to see if it makes my car any better when it arrives.
Which ones, and from where?

i3 Rex with halogen headlights

I've just taken delivery of a new i3 94Rex :D , with the "sport" pack, which includes HK sound, choice of wheels, tinted glass, and LED headlights. It was the latter which decided me to splash out, because the halogen main beam headlights on my previous i3 were abysmal. Imagine my horror in discover...

Re: Trigger pulled too!

t's on it's way albeit with a wait. White Rex with Sport pack, pro media and parking Early September for delivery. Ditto, but grey metallic (whatever that's called). I'd have liked Solar Orange again, but the replacement is a horrible :cry: metallic blue which doesn't, IMHO, "suit" the car. It's ou...

Re: Just Ordered my 2017!

I've ordered a 2017 i3Rex, due in the UK mid-August, they say, so delivered early September. We'll see: the present one took over 7 months to arrive :cry: . I wanted to stay with Orange, but they've replaced it with a horrible blue which I don't think "suits" the car at all. I wanted the same colour...

CarPlay

There has been discussion elsewhere about whether the 2017MY car has CarPlay. The local iGenius seems unaware of how it works, so I hope this helps - for a 2014 car. I have an iPhone 6s, and found that it shows no available cars in the list when I select Settings/General/CarPlay. :cry: It also sugge...

Re: 2017 i3 BEV

CarPlay. The i3 infotainment system is weak at best and more often just annoying. Apple lists "BMW Group" as a partner, but BMW has not yet announced a car that will incorporate CarPlay. How about the new i3? That's interesting. I have an iPhone 6s, and found that it shows no available cars in the ...

Re: BMW Genius here! What is your i3 motoring advice?

I have measured the actual currents supplied by the EV and the OUC. The EV maximum current is exactly 29.5Amps (which falls as the battery approaches full charge). The OUC maximum current is 9.5Amps (exactly 1/3 of the EV value) and also falls as full charge is approached. The power is not "maxed ou...
