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

Personally, I think they FOB design is dumb...the unlock button literally goes right to the edge of the FOB, making it somewhat easy to inadvertently unlock the car when you don't expect it, and, if that button gets held down long enough, open up the windows, too! This is a problem that a lot of i3...

Re: I3 stops charging if I stay in the car

This weekend I took my I3 Rex on a little road trip. The weather was very inclement & when I went to charge the I3 at a Level 2 charge point I decided to sit in the I3 while it was charging.

Re: i3 on Consumer Reports "The Worst of the Worst Used Cars

Well the i3's not the lone electric on the list. They also recommend against buying the model S and Nissan LEAF. It's a pretty long list of cars to avoid...

Re: Public charging station?

You also should check with the charging network operator. Each network has its own rules. I investigated having a shared station installed for our condo complex. The eVgo contract requires their Freedom Stations (CHAdeMO-CCS-L2 combos) be open to the public whereas ChargePoint allows property owner...

Re: Public charging station?

If it's private property then the owner of the property gets to set the rules for parking there. It would help if they posted the rules for charging, but unfortunately very few locations do.

Re: I3 unsafe in winter weather?

I'm just about through my second winter with my i3 using Blizzaks. The car has been exceptional in the snow and ice, much better than what I'd consider average. If you're having difficulty as described, you should definitely have the car checked out.
