Adaptive LED headlights

I'm close to deciding on my final spec now and should be popping in to my local dealer to place the order later this week. One thing I'm yet to decide on is whether to tick the Adaptive LED Headlights option and I've got a couple of questions, 1. Do LED headlights offer any significant range advanta...

Re: BMW Wallbox Questions

For UK members .... does anyone have any experience of using off peak (Economy 7 type) electricity deals . .. are they worth it? My tariff with Centrica (BG) is 16.1p/kWh during the day and 7.1p/kWh during the night so quite a difference. Night is a 7 hour period (1am to 8am) so plenty of time to g...

Re: Clear Doors option like the prototype

Seeing as we're on the subject of glass, thought I'd post this link I'd just read about the i8 being the first car to use gorilla glass for it's windows.

Well you can help persuade them by pointing out it's the only colour that doesn't have the garish blue detailing in the kidneys/door sill, etc ;)

Re: Artifical noise on your i3?

Interesting blog post. Personally I'll be really disapointed if there is an artificial noise that can't be turned off but I'm not expecting that to be the case in the UK despite it being exactly the type of thing that the government can't help but meddle with. I asked 'iGenius' a question about this...

Re: Finalising my order

Did either of you guys try mentioning the 'discount' word to your dealer ? I know there's some big reductions on other BMW's at the moment (been keeping an eye on the m135i which people have reported getting up to 16% off) but I have a feeling the i3 will be a different story with it being so new ?

Re: Finalising my order

But, hey, how can I resist a real sci-fi electric car! :lol: Grats on being that close to submitting the order, I wish I was in the same position. I'm still waiting for my accountant to tell me the best way to buy one so I can figure out the tax benefits. Actually I was thinking of starting a threa...

Re: UK Option prices....

Interesting post m11wlk, thanks. I've been meaning to spend some time with the online chat to ask a couple of questions like that. I tried the automated iGenius text service earlier today but it wasn't quite up the the hype, it only managed to answer 1 out of my 4 questions. Maybe they were stupid q...

Re: Will you order all electric or Rex?

This is such a big decision, not sure how to decide having never driven an EV before. On the one hand I know I'd feel very disappointed to be lugging the petrol engine around when I would only be needing it every 6 weeks or so, but on the other hand the i3 would be my only vehicle so I need to cover...
