i3 12V battery replaced

Sat Sep 29, 2018 4:01 pm

I started getting frequent battery discharging notices on the display when starting the car. Figured out it was the 12V AGM battery. I called my BMW Center for a price on the replacement battery for my barely over 4 year old i3. They quoted me $365 parts and labor, and confirmed it was out of warranty. Car was ready a few hours later, including a SW update for a minor safety recall. I am very happy to report that BMW warrantied the new battery completely since the car was only six weeks out of warranty. Thank you BMW!

I've noticed that BMW are treating me way better than Nissan have. I have two Leafs and just got into a user 2015 i3. Still in the honeymoons stage with it.. I'm looking for any excuse to drive it.. like a kid with a new toy.
