Re: Is the i3 going to be as 'cult' as the Original Beetle when production stops?

I agree, they are high for a daily driver. But not high as a collectible.

I hope i3 will command that sort of prices at some point, but neither is an investment car. A Tesla Roadster or BMW i8 could command several time purchase price at some point. I don't think that will happen with i3.

Re: BMW i3 was ahead of its time AGAIN!

Because their 4 other EVs look stupid compared to 2013 i3.

There will be a number of classics from the first generation of EVs: Tesla Roadster for sure is one of them. BMW i8 is another one, and i3 could be a cult classic at a later date. I think it will be in some museums at some point. I don't think it will be an expensive classics, more in the mold of VW...

Re: How to Deliberately Lose Battery Capacity

I think BMW i3 is one of the few EVs that has a slim chance of some sort of aftermarket battery option in the future. The reason is that the production number is significant, the car is pretty desirable, and the original batteries up to 2019 are small, so a replacement battery with larger capacity c...

Re: i3 to I3s front conversion

looks OK the way it is. It is the last special edition, I wouldn't modify it. It will be a classic soon.

Re: 12 volt battery in later i3s--watch out

There are some factors that affect battery life, for example cold weather, not driving long distances frequently.

Re: Maintenance cost on used BMW I3

See if there is an open recall on your car. You can check this using your VIN. If not I would still check with a nice dealer. This is a well known defect with early i3s and BMW could fix it out of warranty.

Re: Check Engine light after coding change

There could be issues with the engine due to lack of use. I am pretty sure it not related to enabling the range extender option. If I were you I would run the engine several days in a row and see if the check engine light would go away. I have not heard anyone having a check engine light after enabl...
