Well I bought the car in May 2016 and today is February 2019. The car clock was off by ~3 minutes. Ask me again in 3 years.

  1. Set the head unit to allow the option to be set.
  2. Set the body unit to allow the GPS to set the code.
For those interested in how to automatically set the car's clock via its GPS, the coding edits in my 2015 BEV were:

1. HU_NBT module > 3000 > SETTINGS_TIME_AUTOMATIC > set to navigation
2. BKOMBI module > 3000 > GPS_UHR > set to active

In some older U.S. i3s, the auto-clock setting is active from the factory, but it's inactive in others, requiring drivers to manually change the car's time in spring and autumn. Unlike the 2015, the auto-clock setting was active in my 2018 BEV.

Newbie coder.
I want to disable the warning gong that sounds when one or more of the rear parking sensors triggers.
Is this possible?
How do I go about it?

I can't find any information on this... can I code my car for TJA without the quidzel dongle? Or will it throw a bunch of errors/not work? I know the dongle emulates a steering wheel touch. Just wondering what happens if I don't get it. I have a shop that will code it for much less than the dongle costs.

Anyone own a 2017 i3 REx and tried to extend the gas tank?

I know, the 2017 models already use the entire tank. In my haste to code my i3, i turned on this feature and i believe it reversed it so it is now limited to 1.9gal. I am not able to reverse the setting. It is greyed out.

I have emailed Bimmercode and am waiting for their answer. Hopefully i will get an answer and will create a new thread to warn other 2017 and newer owners who happen to make the same mistake as i did.

I believe that the accuracy of an i3's speedometer can be coded to so that the speedometer will display the actual speed rather than default several percent more than the actual speed. However, an Internet search hasn't turned up how to do this on an i3. If you know how, please post your method.
