I think you've lost us all here. Would you care to explain a little more what yo're talking about?

The answer to this varies depending on where you live. In the US, it's called BMW i Flexible Mobility. I did a post regarding the details here:

However, you are in the UK, so the program is completely different.

You can rent a Corsa for £19 per day. IF you need one. That's better than joining the BMW progamme and paying out for something you might use. And if you do it costs a lot more than the equivalent of a Corsa. About £100 a day for a 3 seires IIRC.

Plus Having to drive a Corsa will make you want to get back in the i3 ASAP. TBH - if you get a REX you don't need to worry. It will do long journeys with less compromise than having to drive to a rental pickup and do the paperwork.

Driving a 1 Series made me want to get back in the i3 asap, never mind a Corsa!
