Re: Comfort Access - Safety

Probably won’t be sufficient to stop the signal getting out. I’d keep it shut to be 100% safe. No doubts then.

Re: Comfort Access - Safety

Concern I’d have is there are plenty of examples in reviews of those pouches not working. Double bagging has been suggested but that’s a real faff.

The tin works and can hold more than one set of keys and bunches of keys.

Re: Comfort Access - Safety

Any key that doesn't need pressing to access the car is at risk. The solution is simple. 1. Buy tin of cookies (in an actual metal tin). 2. Eat said cookies! 3. Brush out crumbs from tin and place it where you normally keep your keys 4. Place keys (including spare) in tin 5. Keep lid closed If you w...

Re: Brake Pad and Tyre Wear

I’m no expert but my understanding was very much the same which is why I questioned the original assessment of my pads. I think there are two possible issues at play. Firstly, your car can’t regenerate when the battery is close to full as there’s nowhere for the energy to be stored. This causes a la...

Re: Brake Pad and Tyre Wear

Just to follow up on this old thread, I had the car in for the wheel check (see my other thread) and they did the usual courtesy safety and maintenance checks. Brake pads reported with 7mm (F) and 8mm (R) depth remaining after 28k miles so the original reading I had was plain wrong I am guessing :ro...

Re: i3 is over

I paid around £33k for my i3 with options included. I was waiting eagerly for the iPace specs and data. They phoned me at launch and said "it starts at £63k". I said, "good luck with that" and put the phone down! :shock: Whilst I could in no way be described as poor, for many people (myself included...

Re: Alloy Wheel Corrosion

My one front looks like that but the rears look like the surface coating has been penetrated and there’s a sort of cloudy white corrosion spreading from the inside outwards. Can’t put a photo up currently but will do soon.

Alloy Wheel Corrosion

Anyone noticed a problem with corrosion on the i3 wheels? I seem to have a particular problem around the centre hub on both my back wheels as though something is causing it in this location.

You can set this in the car so can’t see why remote services are relevant there. The only issue would seem to be changing the settings remotely if you needed to.
