Re: ‘18 CPO Sold Minutes Before I Signed Sales Agreement

I was stressing that my recent purchase was going to go the same way. Only difference was they had run my credit and quoted me a rate, but it was over a week between negotiating the deal and me flying out to pick it up. I offered a few times to pay a deposit, since we had nothing binding. Thankfully...

Cash is a bad word. There is profit to be made of finance. Not to say this dealer isn't a piece of crap, but they may have sealed your fate is there was another buyer in front of them.

I haven't had any time in an '18, '19, or '20. If your '18 has the older version of iDrive, you would need to install a new head unit to get iDrive 6. There are supposedly two head units (NBT and NBT Evo(). I don't know the difference. Then of course there's the 120 Ah battery, assuming your '18 has...

Re: Definitive Answer If CarPlay can be Dealer Installed Please?

If I come across the install of the factory unit, I'll shate the link here.

Weren't they initially charging a subscription fee for Car Play, but then recently changed to free/included? I've only half paid attention as I'm not an iPhone user.

Re: Definitive Answer If CarPlay can be Dealer Installed Please?

Are you a specifically looking for "factory" or is aftermarket acceptable? I'm certain I've seen photos or a video of a factory retrofit, but I just did a quick search from my phone and didn't locate it. It involved swapping out the factory head unit under that back seat with the proper BMW part. Bu...

Re: Occasional Use Charger @ Level 2?

I expect it does, but haven't tested it. I also have an ID.4, and plugged its included 10 amp/ 120 volt EVSE into 240, and it works — at better than double the rate. The logic is these are used all around the world and it's simplest and least costly to have one mainboard that's adaptable, and just a...

Re: Carvana Mis-Listed my i3 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lol, yeah, it's like that. Today they fixed the color and key quantity. They also added photos. But they're still calling the seats leather. Oh well, at least now the buyer can see what they're getting. If they can get this car moved to an out of state buyer I should be able to get my registration f...

Re: Maximum charge rate?

Speculating, particularly because DCFC was an optional item at launch, 50kW was in keeping with the technology in 2013 and was sufficient for the 22 kWh battery. As the battery size increased to 33 then 42 kWh, 50 kW remained sufficient, but more importantly, it didn't appear BMW had any interest in...

Carvana Mis-Listed my i3 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well dang... as many of you read I sold my car to Carvana last week, but only after some interior parts swaps. I filled out Carvana's checklist carefully to note the seats were cloth, not leather, the wheels were 20", not 19", and the dash trim was not wood. They offered me a lower price because of ...
