Re: I'm baaack

Congratulations and Welcome Back. The S version of the i3 for sure drives and handles better than the non-S version. I had a 2019 i3S and now a 2020 i3S, and the difference when I have driven a non-S i3 is huge; handling and steadiness is very noticeable. The BMW Connected app should be free while t...

Re: Connected Services Ending - Offical

Some updated info. According to a telecom engineer, the 'new' ATT 4G modem for BMW is not compatible with the BMW NBT ID4 boxes in the older BMW i3's, so any upgrade would involve not only swapping out the ATT modem, but also upgrading/swapping out the NBT box - this would put the upgrade approachi...

Re: BMW i3 was ahead of its time AGAIN!

100% eNate. Just think how amazing the great in 2014 i3 was could be if BMW continued to make big changes up until 2021. Yes, we all appreciate the battery jump from 60 to 94 to 120...but almost everything else is unchanged. The i3 could have actually been a Tesla competitor instead of a beyond nich...

Re: Driver seat height adjustment tip

I am on i3S #2 and no power seats is maybe my biggest gripe. I would take a minuscule range hit, to have power motors in the seats. I think it is embarrassing in a $60,000 BMW to have manual seats. A power tailgate would be amazing too.

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

THIS was me with the problem. 4 times with my 2019 i3S Rex. After 4 times fixing the check engine light and a saturated charcoal canister...BMWNA bought my car back. I have had my 2020 i3S Rex now for 7 months and zero problems. The second time they accused me of overfilling the tank, I filed a comp...

Re: Short Road Trip in BWM i3

Great video! Thanks for sharing. I am getting read to take my first ever long trip in my i3S. Although this is i3 #2 for me, I have never traveled more than 50 miles one way anywhere. I am planning a 6-7 hour, 420 mile drive from Calabasas, CA to Scottsdale, AZ. I'm planning on using electric for 25...

Re: Replaced Deka Silver trim with Dark Oak Wood Trim

Looks great. My first i3 had Deka silver trim. I liked it, but never loved it. My current has the dark oak wood and I LOVE it. Great job! Congrats!

Re: Powered seats retrofit

Amazing job. Honestly powered seats are the ONLY thing that bothers me about my i3S. $60k car! Insane with our cheap seats!

Re: Code P0440

Deutsch100: Thanks for the reply. Doesn't sound encouragin, but hopefully mine won't be as problematic as yours was. Do you recall what the charge was for replacing the valve? Your warranty paid for yours but I'm on my own with this one. I was under factory warranty, and this P0440 code came up 3 d...
