Re: Install Thule roof rack tracks

The Yakima site shows they do a roof rack system that fits the i3 - but at a price pushing $700 for one, makes the SeaSucker mount look very economical. :)

And with frameless windows, not sure how the Yakima system, which looks like it clamps to the top inside of the door frame would work.

Re: Install Thule roof rack tracks

The SeaSucker mounts look promising!
Yeah, but pricy.

People have put together their own temporary roof carrier with these.

Or do a short-term rental on a box at the UPS store in Blaine, just across the border, so you have a US ship-to address.

Re: Winter wheel/tire fitment 2018 i3s

Unfortunately, they don't ship to Canada! Odd - you might message the seller and ask to be sure. I once bought an overdrive transmission for an MGB on eBay UK, where the listing specifically said, would not ship to the US - messaged the seller, and he had no problem shipping it out to me in Dallas,...

Re: Winter wheel/tire fitment 2018 i3s

Nice find, though OUCH almost $500 shipping from Germany! Even with shipping though, that's still only $312 per wheel, with winter tire already mounted and balanced, ready to bolt on the car. The winter tires alone are $140 plus at least $20 per for mounting and balancing new - so figuring at $160 ...

Re: Winter wheel/tire fitment 2018 i3s

Depending on what your dealer can or cannot offer, you might check around your neck of the woods to see if anyone sells Rial wheels. RIAL Leichtmetallfelgen GmbH makes the X10-I in 19" specifically for the i3. Here is the US they are available at TireRack, though the TR web site shows they are all s...

Re: i3 with 57kWh battery

We may need to rely on 3rd-party's rather than BMW for higher capacity battery upgrades (if the market will support). Like this "proof of concept" battery developed for the i3, with a range of 400 plus miles.

Re: i3 with 57kWh battery

I think the weight difference in U.K. i3's was likely due almost completely to the battery pack weight difference. However, it's difficult to know for certain because curb weights can be defined differently in different markets and maybe even in different model years. Very true - found this gem, wh...

Re: i3 with 57kWh battery

Please post a link to this article
Here you go....

https://cleantechnica.com/2016/09/19/co ... -rex-94ah/

Is that relative to the 60 Ah model or the 94 Ah model?
The article compared the 2014 BMW i3 REx (60Ah) to the 2017 i3 REx (94Ah)
