Re: i3 servicing - Is the Service Inclusive poor value

In the UK i believe service inclusive is £375 for 5 years for BEV and REX alike. This strikes me as good value at about £75 per year, particularly compared with normal service costs for non electric 'premium' cars.

Re: Adaptive LEDs

They seem to have stopped calling them adaptive now by the way. They now just call them LED Headlights.

Re: Noise for Pedestrians

Maybe an MP3 of a TVR V8 might do the trick! Might be a bit disappointing to fans of the real thing though.
