Re: Custom License Plate - Wife Very Angry - Need Advice

Ah, so partly right. Odd that their mockup system didn't bother to use the actual license plate font. Also, it offered the Oregon Trail plate‽ Edit: Ah, just went through the process - I see, you mocked it up yourself, not just saved their mockup then photoshopped on to your car. Yeah, no longer off...

Re: Custom License Plate - Wife Very Angry - Need Advice

Time to be the spoiler - that ain't your real license plate.

The "Oregon Trail" plates haven't been offered in nearly 20 years, and that font is all wrong for an Oregon license plate. (I had custom Oregon Trail plates on my car in college.)

But howdy, fellow Oregonian i3 owner! Nice car!

Re: Bye Bye . . . SPAM wins

Remember, this is not admin's full time job. This is a small "hobby forum" with (presumably) no paid employees. Yes, it takes time to deal with the spam, as admin almost certainly has a day job and needs to actually pay attention to that. I just ignore the forum and come back a day later when I see ...

Re: i3 2014 COLLISION AVOIDANCE

A tip I read online when I bought my Prius forever ago was to press the accelerator pedal as if you had a raw egg between it and your foot. You can press it, but gently apply pressure, don't press hard/fast.

Re: Charging time 2016 60AH

Four hours sounds about right. It doesn't pull maximum amperage right at the "ends" of the battery. So about 0-5% it won't pull the full 30A, and 95-100% it won't pull the full 30A. Yeah, BMW claims 32 hours, but I have a 10kW EVSE, and when I drained my battery to 1%, it took a smidge over 4 hours ...

Re: Driving a 2017 bev 400 miles

Without knowing where it is, or where you live, I'd say there's no way to know if there are enough charging stations. Most of the country does have at least L2 stations (4 hours to recharge) close enough together to drive nearly anywhere, with DC Quick Charging stations a bit less common, but fairly...

Re: The spam here is insane!

There's an i3 "subreddit" on Reddit: http://reddit.com/bmwi3

It's not as active as here, but it gets a few posts a day.

Slightly damp rag, then go over it with a dry cloth.

Re: Is SOC in Hold SOC setting relative to start SOC?

It's 75% of maximum, not 75% of "when turned on." You'll be fine. (At least, it's let me turn it on immediately after turning on the car when at <75%.) As for "charge level", it charges up to whatever you set it at when you pushed the button. So if you set it at 60%, it will charge up to 60% then st...
