Re: I Officially Hate Deer

So my car is still not fixed. It has been waiting on elves in the Black Forrest to build some electrical connectors (fuel flap release, frunk release, etc) that apparently got broken in the collision. They finally got the parts but now I just got a call from the shop today saying that the new LED he...

Re: Easy Horn Swap

Funny! Finding deer around my neck of the woods is pretty easy. We commonly refer to them as very big, annoying rodents. Although those of us who happen to hit one have more colorful descriptions...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

I'm still hoping that there will be a reasonably priced upgrade for the 3G i3's, but you're right - time is running out, and the lack of information from BMW bodes ill, I fear. I use ConnectDrive multiple times a week to climatize the car and would really hate to lose that ability. I do have my key ...

Easy Horn Swap

Swapped the little "clown car" horn out for a set of PIAA horns today. What a difference! And it was a simple swap. Here's how I did it: STEP 1: Hit a deer out on the highway. STEP 2: When the body shop removes the hood and the bumper cover for repair, replace the horn, which is now sitting exposed ...

Re: 12 Volt Auxiliary Battery East Penn Deka AUX18L

It used to be, if you wanted to trickle charge the battery, you had to pull the HV disconnect first. Supposedly, that changes, depending on what system software is in your vehicle. Because the vehicle disconnects the 12vdc sockets in the vehicle, you can't use them to maintain the battery...you hav...

Re: I Officially Hate Deer

Well, my car went into the shop on Monday and they are predicting that it will be done by the middle of next week. I really miss driving it and will be very happy to get it back!

Re: I Officially Hate Deer

Update: Insurance company did an estimate based solely upon the pictures that they had me upload to their system and came out about $2,500 lower than the estimate from my local body shop who actually examined the car. Let the dance begin...

I Officially Hate Deer

Managed to miss the first 2 deer but caught the rear end of the 3rd one on the front right corner of the car. Took it to a body shop and came away with an estimate of $7,500. A rather astounding $1,900 just for the LED headlight! Turned it in to my insurance company and am waiting to see what they s...

Re: Have smaller 6" screen anyway to upgrade to 9" screen?

That looks very interesting! Does this use the iDrive controller or do you have to mount a separate controller? Hopefully you will post back after your install and let us know how it went and how you like it.
