If you can't examine an i3 in person and you have its VIN, use a BMW VIN decoder and look for the 4U7 Fast Charging DC option.Redheadjj wrote:1.) How can I tell if a used 2014 has the high speed DC charging option? (Most of the dealers descriptions are cut and paste things.)
No i3 U.S. has the AM radio enabled by default, but it's easy to enable it using the BimmerCode app. However, electromagnetic interference from the drivetrain could make listening to AM radio unpleasant, depending on the AM signal strength.Redheadjj wrote:2.) Was any form of AM radio part of a radio option? (2014-2016)
U.S. i3's had only 3 trim choices: Mega World (light gray cloth, light gray faux leather trim, light steering wheel), Giga World (light gray wool, tan leather trim, light steering wheel) and Tera World (dark brown leather, dark steering wheel). The i3's in the photos you saw must not have been 2014's.Redheadjj wrote:3.) Recently, I noticed some white 2014s in OR/WA (Autolist, Cargurus, etc.) that have Deka upholstery and the dark steering wheel. I thought the dark gray Deka upholstery came first in 2016. Any thoughts about that?
