Re: Knowing what you know now. Would you do it all over agai

Yes, I would buy again. This is our fourth week with the car and have put 1500 miles. We have had no problems so far. Where we are the daily driving might exceed the electric range so only the REx works for us. I also bought a coding cable and the software and unlocked the REx menu. That said I have...

Re: How to download the i3 manual

There is one in the Files section of the i3 facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BMWi3/710944222312775/ This Facebook link would probably not work without a Facebook account, here is another one: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20310202/2014%20BMW%20i3%20Owner%27s%20Manual.pdf This man...

Re: First experience winter driving in Wisconsin with my i3

Riz, thanks for sharing and please do continue posting your experience, I find it very valuable. I have the same model as you (including color :D ) and am planning on getting a winter set but not until next winter - I want to have the two sets age with a bit of offset, hoping that this will give me ...

Re: Traded an M for an i...

Do yourself a favor and rent a car for the ring...it really does help to bed the engine in per BMW's guidelines down the road for oil use, and total performance. I doubt you'd have your 1,000-miles on it before you got there from Munich! I'm afraid we might have shifted the focus of this thread... ...

Re: Traded an M for an i...

I recently lost my beloved 2003 540 M-sport (totaled while keeping my wife out of harm's way) and love the i3 which we took possession of yesterday. I have been test driving all new bimmer models for years trying to find a good replacement for our aging e39's (we still have a 2000 540 which will hav...

Re: Loaner cars?

We just received our i3 yesterday, love it. The dealer told us they had just entered into this program and they have 2 3-series cars in the dealership solely dedicated to i3 owners wanting to loan them for a longer trip. He said this is completely free of charge, we just need to give enough advance ...

Re: USA Winter Tire Package

Re: 2014 i3 Coded Dynamic Brake Lights.

Very nice. My i3 is coming this week and I already bought the coding cable and software, this will definitely get on the list. Why did you have the reverse light blink instead of the brake lights? Is this a good source to get help on the coding procedure? http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread....

Re: Anyone powder coat BMW 427 wheel yet in black?

Not sure if blackening out the 427 would improve their looks, here are some pictures I came across of blackened 427's but not liking that either;
