I have 3 Macs I could have used.. I tried to install Bootcamp, but when OSX asked me to install Windows it required a disc to be inserted in a DVD drive. This stumped me for a couple of days, and I googled workarounds that involved coding with Terminal. I tried it, hit some road blocks, and decided that buying a cheap laptop would be easier and cheaper than buying a copy of Windows.
The local pawn shop had a 3 year old laptop for $60, bingo! Not to sound like a Mac snob, but HFS I hate Windows! I haven't used it in 20 years but nothing has really changed. The mouse scrolling is choppy and unpredictable, Windows 8 went through great efforts to hide all the settings, and a million little hassles. Absolute garbage. Upgraded to 10, its a little better. My 12 year old MPB with a SSD dances circles around this POS.
Just finished the battery re-initialization on my '14 60ah i3. In 32 degree weather the Batt Kappa went from 14kwh to 18.4 and range went from 49 miles to 74. Cant wait to see the actual range when the weather is warm! The battery was charged to 100% before using ISTA, and after ISTA it chugged another .6 kwh (while reading 100%). The range increase isn't just in the GOM, its real world. I just drove 35 miles going 65mph with the heater on the whole way and I'm only at half tank. I'm not sure how this witchcraft works, but I'm wondering if it opens up some of the battery buffer to give you 18.x kwh again. No idea, but I'm not asking questions.
If you have battery degradation you must try this!
*I was told to unplug the car during the test and 15 min reset of car, then plug in after*
