Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

Just found some interesting tidbits about the NYK Lyra Leader, which is carrying some of our i3s across the pond now. This ship can carry 6500 cars, and uses all electric propulsion. I believe this refers to multiple torpedo like units with electric motors driving propellers, which can swivel undern...

Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

I have seen other BMW delivery discussions saying Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme is also served by NYK and K-Line, which are not part of the W&W lines, nor covered by the W&W search page. Yes you are correct. I had seen that also but supposedly they deliver mainly to the East Coast? This morning I cal...

Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

... mine at the port since 7/13, with no ship assigned yet, heading to AZ. When you say the next boat is the Otello, are you looking only at W&W boats? I understand there are one or two other shipping companies BMW uses to the west coast, some with smaller boats that move faster with fewer stops al...

Re: Do you have an i3 on order and awaiting delivery?

... Mine has been sitting at the port since 7/13. Are you West Coast? Next boat (Otello) to the West leaves 7/26 and arrives 8/20. Maybe we're on the same ship! Same here, with mine at the port since 7/13, with no ship assigned yet, heading to AZ. When you say the next boat is the Otello, are you l...

I got it right away, and I have no physics degree. However, my electrical engineering degrees might have helped a bit. ;)

Re: Make the sun visor extenable

I can forgive the lack of electric memory seats due to the weight and space penalties, but it is hard for me to forgive BMW for this chintzy non-sliding sun visor. It was a big negative on my evaluation of the i3. (Of course the many big positives won out!)

Re: i3 Rex problems after 15days and 800miles

I test drove three different i3s at two different dealers before putting down my deposit. The first of the three was as noisy as a soft-top Miata at speed. Above 70 the noise was really terrible. We checked that all windows were up. Below 45, there was very little noise. It was close to a deal kille...

Re: Cruise control.

Hi, I currently drive a BMW 335i and enjoy using the cruise control as it is maintains a constant speed while driving uphill and or downhill. This is convenient; I do not need to break to maintain a specific speed. My question for current i3 users, does the i3 cruise control function the same way? ...
