Re: Ran the REX for the first time....

2017 model here, the REx makes a quiet little putter. I can't hear it at highway speed.

Re: DIY: Highbeam Headlamp Replacement / Upgrade

Re: Hardwiring dashcam: ground terminal?

The grounding point that I chose did not work well. It kept losing the connection even after securing it with tape. Here is that grounding point mentioned by Mark in post #2. I had to slightly pop out the black panel to get the screwdriver at the torx screw. Works great! https://i.imgur.com/jIQxUPu....

Re: Bilstein B4 shocks & struts

This sounds like a great alternative to lowering springs, spacers, etc. for highway stability! Lastly, any harshness over very rough roads?

Re: Bilstein B4 shocks & struts

I have been toying with the idea of changing these out. Thanks for posting. Would you say that they improved stability at highway speed to the point where spacers/lowering/etc aren't necessary? Any negative changes to NVH? This looks like a great deal: https://www.shocksurplus.com/products/bilstein-...

Not getting notifications

Not getting notifications, or emails on replies to topics.

I tried to change the notification settings by ticking each box. On clicking submit it says preferences were updated, but they are unticked when returning.

Am I missing something?

Inner tire wear - need alignment or normal?

Image

Just picked up an i3 REx and loving it so far. The tires are all 2/32 on the insides, 4/32 on the outsides.

Is this considered normal for the car or does it need a better alignment?

Here's a photo of the seatbelt on my 2017.
Also interested to know if this is a warranty item.

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty has a 10 year warranty for the state of Kansas only.
