Re: Remote lock/unlock and Climatization doesn't work

Has you car been officially added to Connected? FYI, supposedly BMW Connected app is shutting down in June, so to play it safe I got the MY BMW app (same log in used). You can use and run both on your iOs or Android phones. My past 4 BMWs with Connected became active right away at the dealer when I ...

Re: My first 24 hours with a 2020 i3s REX

I am on i3S #2 and the FIRST thing I did on both was 3M Ceramic window tinting on E V E R Y window including the sunroof! The i3 is a hot box without ceramic tinting. Also, the car will look even better and super cool when tinted. It makes a huge difference. MUST tint windows!! My first i3S was Deka...

Re: Android my BMW App Now Available in Play Store

My BMW is available for iOS too. I got it yesterday. I greatly prefer the look, layout and performance of BMW Connected. Connected is set to die in June :( I’m hoping for Apple Watch compatibility soon. And more eDrive data gathering and crunching. But the app looks more modern. YES...sad they remo...

Re: Pre-heating the battery, not just the cabin.

Yes, if you're plugged in (even to 120 volts), and have a departure time set at least 3 hours in the future, the battery will be warmed. At 120 volts, because the load is greater than what's available through the cord, the battery will be used to make up the difference. It's not much though, maybe ...

Re: Air Conditioning for Pets

Keep in mind there's no message on the center display like Tesla's "Dog Mode" so depending where you park and outdoor conditions, you run the risk of a passerby thinking your pet is trapped in a hot car and "saving it" by breaking your window! :) Agree! Tesla's Dog Mode is actually a great idea. On...

Re: Keeping the i3, Bought an ID.4...

Awesome. Love that you took the time to compare the two. I like the ID.4, but I wish the USA would get the ID.3. I think VW did a very good job on both cars, but still for the i3 debuting in 2014...IMO, it looks more modern and unique that the ID cars, but I'm sure VW wanted something that would app...

Re: Smog Check in California?

As far as I know, the i3 is legally classified as an EV in California, where other states have it listed as a gasoline hybrid. I do not believe there is any smog check for the i3 in CA.

Re: Loads of Pictures.... incl Rex

That is very likely a coding leftover from the ICE cars from BMW. No second tanks in Euro i3. You can't even get a new REX in Europe anymore. The question is - how often do you need the Rex that a larger tank would make sense? I could give up the Frunk. I only opened it once in all my ownership. Us...

Re: Loads of Pictures.... incl Rex

I would NOT buy an EV without a frunk. It is amazing for picking up hot food! You can store it in the frunk while driving home and the cabin is not filled with strong Chinese food smells, greasy burgers and fries or any other take out that makes the inside of the car smell so bad. LOVE the frunk! I...
