Re: 801252: Replacing BMW i3 air conditioning compressor

This is excellent news! I remember reading about the 5-figure quote, but nothing after that. Great news indeed! How does one flush the system? With compressed air going in the other direction? There were at least two or three posters with the catastrophic AC failure, two at least in Arizona. One po...

Re: 801252: Replacing BMW i3 air conditioning compressor

Just an FYI - I do seem to remember reading a post by an i3 owner who had the dreaded AC compressor failure, where the Dealer told them the entire system had to be replaced because of metal debris from the failed AC compressor in the lines, with a five-figure repair quote. The guy took it to an inde...

Re: Replaced right side mirror, now none of the mirror blinkers are workingq

Was the 'donor' mirror compatible? With power to the mirror, either there is a connection that was not wired correctly or was cross-wired, or whatever micro-circuit in the mirror controlling and coordinating the signal flash isn't compatible with the car. I'd try transfering the 'guts' of the broken...

Re: i3 won’t charge at home, does at dealership

As eNate posted, you've eliminated the car as the problem, so what you are left with is the EVSE. The EVSE is not communicating properly with the i3, either because of an EVSE hardware or a software issue. What EVSE do you have? If it is hard-wired or plugged in, so under continuous power, flip off ...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

Does my ability to get Connected Drive for the next year indicate I have a 4g? If this is the case what happened to eDtive? Is it deprecated?
What year is your car? 4G telematics were installed starting mid-to-end 2017.

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

Can they do that? I've signed a contract to buy their car and certain services that come with it. I've paid them cash for that 6 years ago, I expect them to keep their end of the bargain. Apparently they think they can - all of the 'new' connected service offerings come up as 'not available for you...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

I don't read any suggestion that BMW will do anything to continue ConnectedDrive services for 3G i3's beyond February, 2022, which would require replacement of the 3G telematics module with the 4G model. I agree with Art - BMW is basically saying they are looking at how to allow 'connected' renewal...

Re: Optional ConnectedDrive services no longer available in store

Just an FYI - on the i3 Facebook group, it looks like there is some preliminary groundwork being done to see if a class action lawsuit should be pursued, if BMW sunsets the bulk of their 'connected' options for owners with 3g modems, with no upgrade path being offered.

Re: Paint

I think it's really weird that they don't allow photos in a forum where everyone wants to show off their car a little bit, it doesn't seem fair to have to pay a membership fee to show it off. The forum Admn has to pay for the storage space for the pics and the software to manage the storage/display...
