Re: End of production

Yeah, this was posted on FB by a New Jersey BMW Dealer two days ago: I wish I had better news to report. July has been communicated as the final production month for i3 in the US market. The final month of ordering has eliminated HK sound due to the global chip shortages. The final remaining order s...

Re: Air conditioning failed

I have been reading this post "Air conditioning failed". In reading the BMW new vehicle warranty guide supplied with my i3, if your i3 is considered a TZEV and registered in the states of California, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Washington the electric a/c compressor is covered for 15 years and 150,0...

Re: Buying a used i3 94 Ah

Having looked around recently for 2019 BEVs, I can tell you that it's slim pickings and the prices are borderline ridiculous. Yeah, I don't know if it is the general market conditions right now, ie. new car limited inventory because of the chip shortage, used car limited inventory because of the pa...

Re: Have smaller 6" screen anyway to upgrade to 9" screen?

If you are on FB you might try posting your question to the BMW i3 Modified Group. Several on there have done that upgrade. https://www.facebook.com/groups/BMWi3Modified

Re: Have smaller 6" screen anyway to upgrade to 9" screen?

I have a similar problem. Did you find a solution? Which screen did you upgrade to? i3 2018 - present, are from Kyocera, pre-2018 from Innolux, and not interchangeable, ie. the Kyocera screen will not work on pre-2018 cars, unless you also upgrade the headunit, and Innolux screens will not work on ...

Re: door switch

I have a very narrow single car garage and had the same problem. I put one of these fisheye safety mirrors up where I can see it driving in, and it gives a good view of where the wheels are. I also used yellow tape to outline the exact parking space, to make it easier to see in low light. https://ww...

Re: REX Refueling / Check Engine Light / Fuel Tank And Emissions System Damage

I think this will be be my last BMW there arrogance is just intolerable . You may be misplacing your wrath. BMW Dealers are independent entities running a franchise. Some are great. Some not so much. I have four BMW Dealers in my area. Two of them I wouldn't take my i3 in for service if they paid m...

Re: Apple hires BMW i3 executive to develop apple car

I think it more likely that they are working on an 'Apple' self-driving platform. Kranz left his role at BMW to co-found self-driving startup Canoo. The Tesla execs Apple has been hiring are from the self-driving software development team. Think along with the Apple CarPlay module added to the car a...

Re: Odd Pump Noise

I get it that the compressor will fail for these 2014 models, but no one seems to say anything about the compressor needing replacement as well - removing that would knock off 1,000 from the bill. ... assume you mean "no one seems to say anything about the condenser needing replacement...
