Re: Build Quality - poor? DANGEROUS?

Within two hours of dropping the i3 at the dealer, I received a call telling me that there were considerable upgrade and updates for my i3 and the car would have to be kept behind but would need to be taken to a dealer in Leicester.

Re: Posting Images howto

This is great advice which is very much appreciated but I can't help expressing my frustration at the inadequacy of this web site, to not be able to attach a simple image. I belong to many forums and this is a first. Such a popular forum which addresses issues with the i3 should really have this fa...

Re: Build Quality - poor? DANGEROUS?

I have photos to display but not sure of the procedure. I visited the dealer and he suggested a new window should be ordered because the window comes with the mounts pre-bonded, they were reluctant to re glue the original window back. Security is something of great concern to me, I only use the i3 f...

Build Quality - poor? DANGEROUS?

Re: Iphone 6--Enhanced BT

You have coded in office menu and you DO have SMS visible on the i3? Does this happen only when plugged in via USB. I've coded the office menu on mine but haven't seen any message envelopes. I don't plug in my phone though--100% Bluetooth. Yes I attach the usb to my iphone6 and when I look into off...

Re: Retrofit Sunroof

Personally, I was both surprised and pleased that the sunroof didn't make it into the USA vehicles...the headroom is marginal for me now, and with a (mandatory) sunroof which was planned for all versions other than base in the USA originally, I either would not have been able to get it configured t...
