Re: Denver to Jackson hole on the REX?

If you have a small portable charger with a NEMA 14-50 you could stop at campgrounds and plug in. You could change your plugshare filters to show 110 volt outlets and Nema 14-50 outlets. If that does not work for you, I would just REX it.

Re: Question on chargers including wireless

I have two Clipper Creek EVSEs, a 32 amp mounted outdoors supplies the maximum an i3 can handle on level 2, and a portable 24 amp that I use to plug in at camp sites where they have NEMA 14-50 outlets.

Re: Spare tyre option

The Nokian 155 snow tires will absolutely fit on the 5-1/2" wide rear wheels, even though they are not supposed to. I ordered mine from a large tire company and had a local tire shop mount them. I told them the wheels were staggered and that the tires would fit both front and rear. Over a thousand m...

Re: Buying Advice: 2014 i3 REX

You should find out if the motor mounts have been replaced with the updated version. There was an issue with the early i3s breaking motor mounts. It can be an expensive failure to repair especially if it causes extra damage to other components.

Re: steering Wheel became Hard to turn

After experiencing heavy steering once, my dealer said there is a recall and that they are working on a software fix. I do not know how wide the recall is. Talk to your dealer!
