So, I am in the market for an i3 and plan on getting one in the next couple of months. For my needs I want a BEV variant, but since must-haves are Giga, Tech, color choice and low miles, there is not a lot of CPOs out there in the SF Bay Area checking all of those boxes.
So, I am now thinking I should be flexible and consider a REX as well. But, I like to better understand what that may mean from a maintenance perspective. I have been driving a Fiat 500e for the past 6 years and just love how there is no maintenance to worry about.
Do all of the considerations of having a traditional ICE car [oil changes, tuneup as, belts, hoses, etc?], come back into the picture, when one considers the REX variant?
Anything else that I should consider in choosing a REX instead of a BEV?
