Not that anyone probably noticed I was gone
After selling my '15 Rex at the start of the pandemic, I just took delivery of a '19 i3S BEV CPO with only 6900 miles.
Comparing the '15 with the '19 S, I honestly can't tell a different is speed or "zippyness", but maybe my senses are tainted as I test drove other BEV's including the i-Pace and Taycan. Settled on another i3 as it fits my use case best - 3rd car used primarily for a 70 mile round trip commute in SF Bay area rush hour traffic. To add icing on the cake, my employer has a bunch of free Level 2 chargers available to me.
One thing I can say, is the '19 S has *much* better handling than my old '15 REX. Way more grip and better control of body heave and roll. The steering feels a little (a lot?) heavier than I remember and the cloth seats (Deka) have more lumbar support, are better bolstered and at least for me are more comfortable than the leather seats (Tera) in my '15.
Is the BMW Connected app subscription only now? I can log on to my account online, but get an invalid password when I try to use the app.
Looking through the website, it looks like it's $50 a year to to access key vehicle info. Am I missing something?
Anyway, glad to be back in the i3 family. Here is a snap of my new toy just after I got it home.
