    Base sound upgrade - Match DSP amplifier?

    Have you guys considered The base stereo between pre LCI and post LCI is night and day. The LCI is about 90% of the HK tbh. It’s just missing mids at ear level and rear speakers tbh. It does some things better than HK, I’d still prefer the HK but after 2019 it got way better.

    Anyone found another tire that fits??

    How did you find 195mm S100s? I can only find 215mm. If they are available, where did you buy them? Would love a set

    Base sound upgrade - Match DSP amplifier?

    Is this an upgrade for the 2019 and newer LCI base sound system also? Or just the pre-LCI? I have an LCI and want to upgrade, but the stereo is already a lot better than the pre-LCI base. I’d want to make sure this is truly an upgrade for the LCI and not just the older cars. Also have you...

    My intro message. BMW i3S is brilliant, but needs big range Solid State battery

    I live in the US too but hit the thermal limit going 70-75mph up into the mountains at times. Which is a bummer because I ski a lot

    My intro message. BMW i3S is brilliant, but needs big range Solid State battery

    So, just saw this thread. I do work in EV charging, specifically V2G and related stuff. Just a few thoughts. Personally, I think the i3 could use a larger battery but also a better cooled motor. It’s a little down on power as is and the cooling is an issue if you’re driving quickly (for...

    Transmission oil change on a Rex from 2016 onwards

    Is that 1/4” OD by 1/8” ID tubing you used? Also you mentioned loctite, do you think that’s necessary? Ordering BOM now.

    Transmission oil change on a Rex from 2016 onwards

    Sent you a message. One other question: I assume you’re using some kind of pump to push the 500ml of liquid in. Is there a lot of loss there? Do you just add a few extra ml and call it good?

    12v battery monitor

    Same issue. I think bmw updated the charging logic and it charges at the last minute, right before departure. It’s annoying

    Transmission oil change on a Rex from 2016 onwards

    Thanks for sharing. So when you pumped it in did you just unscrew it quickly and pop in the drain plug? How did you keep the oil from spilling out?

    Vanity Mirror LED upgrade.

    Contributing to this thread, here’s another light option that’s warm white led instead of bright white/blueish. In the photos it looks yellow but it’s about 3000k and much brighter than stock. https://a.co/d/46CE5B2 In the first three photos the left bulb is replaced with stock on the right...

    Charging 80 or 100%

    100% is fine for a 2017 onward. I am at 102k on the 2017 and it’s hardly degraded at all. Newer cars use NCM 811 which swells more when top charging. The i3 uses NCM333 and I think 532 or 622, I can’t remember, which don’t suffer as much from top charging. It’s still not great to top charge but...

    Heated mirror retrofit?

    Maybe my i3 does have heated mirrors and I just needed to precondition, but it didn’t seem like it. Hmm.

    Heated mirror retrofit?

    I have an i3 2017 with heated mirrors and sadly my new 2020 i3s doesn’t have them. What does it take to swap in the capability? Do I just exchange the glass or is there also a need to add wires or code the car?

    Part Wanted Trade i3s bi-color wheels for jet black * TRADE COMPLETED *

    Nice! How much is left on the tire tread (mainly care about the rears)? I don’t have a preference on shop. I think any tire shop can do the swap pretty quickly. I usually go to America’s tire at 1350 Pine Street in Walnut Creek, but if there is somewhere closer to the 5 or 101 I’m happy to go...
