Re: Anyone buying through a company in the UK?

I'm meeting with the BMW Business sales guy tomorrow so hopefully he'll be able to shed some light on it! I wouldn't hold your breath :) I asked for similar advice when I was buying mine. The salesman admitted he knew very little about it but said he could get financial advice from a BMW department...

Re: Anyone buying through a company in the UK?

I wondered if anyone else has done this route. Hi nowtta60, there are lots of people who have done this (me included) as all of the benefits combined are very significant and without them I probably wouldn't have bought an i3. As for advice, I'll say what I usually do when I see threads like this p...

Re: UK i3 buyers - Newbie questions on buying costs

What have you worked out the real UK cost to charge one up to be? I'm keeping records and when I charge overnight on the night tariff I'm paying 91p per full charge (including losses). Since getting the car my leccy bill has gone up by about £15 a month and that's for about 1k miles per month. It's...

Fuse box schematic

My 12V socket under the dash isn't working. Not sure it ever has as this is the first time I've tried to use it (the one between the front seats is ok). It could be just a blown fuse so I looked in the manual to see if there's a schematic to explain which one to check but can't see anything so thoug...

Re: Electricity Consumption

Yes. I didn't include the REx in my calculation as that will not be from my solar panel generated electricity :) No, it won't be charged from your solar but it will reduce the amount of kWh's that you calculated. If you use the REx as much as I do then your answer is 4714x0.88=4148kWh. If that's bl...

Re: Electricity Consumption

Spot on :)

Don't forget though that some of your mileage will be powered via the REx and this obviously depends on how many long distance journeys you're going to be doing. I've seen some owners saying they haven't even used their REx yet, personally I'm using it for about 12% of my mileage so far.

Re: Electricity Consumption

Hi, I've got a meter alongside my wallbox so I've been recording my consumption on a spreadsheet. The average charging losses (without pre-conditioning of the cabin) work out to be 17.1% and it doesn't vary much ( chart of last 20 charges ) which means that a full charge of the 18.8kWh battery from ...
