Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

I will report back in March on my efforts to renew the services. According to the previous post and the BMW Real OEM Parts website, a 4g telematics module was standard equipment in all i3 models produced after 6/2016 (i.e., starting with the 2017 model year).

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

Based on a prior discussion thread on this forum, I think the 4G telematics module might have been installed on 2017 models even though the ConnectedDrive service currently utilizes a 3G connection. In any event, I should know something definitive next month when I attempt to renew the services on m...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

Alohart, Are the services currently active in your car and you are trying to renew the services before they expire or were they already expired? The same services for my 2017 i3 Rex are set to expire in April, and the BMW Connected Drive website says that I will be able to renew all/any of the servi...

BMW TeleService Battery Guard

While reading some online articles about BMW's remote services, I noticed a service called BMW TeleService Battery Guard for the 12 volt batteries of BMW vehicles. BMW's Connected Drive website describes the service as follows: TeleService Battery Guard continually checks the battery charge level of...

Re: BMW Connected drive 3G to 4G?

I agree with all points made by Richs. My hope is that having a 4g module already installed (if that is true) on my vehicle might make my i3's transition on ConnectedDrive from 3G to 4G easier (and less costly) when ATT's 3G network is shut down a little over a year from now.

Re: BMW Connected drive 3G to 4G?

I am hoping Art is correct about this. I purchased a CPO 2017 i3 Rex (manufactured in November 2016) to replace my 2016 i3 Rex about a year ago, and the ConnectedDrive connection for my 2017 is much more stable and quick when I use the App to communicate with the vehicle. I had many ConnectedDrive c...

Re: Where to find Level 2 home charger ratings/reviews?

There are two fairly informative online articles reviewing EV chargers that I uncovered: https://www.autoguide.com/top-10-best-home-ev-chargers And Tom Moloughney wrote a good article on the subject back in 2018: https://insideevs.com/news/341500/the-ultimate-buyers-guide-to-home-ev-chargers-plus-to...

Question about tire choice

Hello, I just read some older posts by i3 owners who installed 175/55r20 Ecopia 500 tires on the front 20x5 wheels and 195/50r20 tires on the rear 20x5.5 wheels with no spacers on any wheel. I wanted to know who has tried that combination without spacers and how well that worked out? Thanks for the ...
