thanks Alohart. That sun just kills. I hate looking at the hood in full sun. Nice pics! I still do love the color. So in my life I've had a white 87 VW golf, a white 1999 VW Passat, a 2000 Silver VW Jetta, a 2018 Protonic Blue BMW i3, a white 2021 BMW i3, and now the 2019 Jucaro Beige BMW i3S

The Protonic Blue was nice and this Beige as well, but they are the darkest cars I've ever owned. Unfortunately there are a lot of Fluid Black i3's out there :(
 
I have one question: does the front black section or the bumper/hood have any road rash from debris? I know you've said the roof is in good shape and the car is garage kept. I just found your for sale thread. :)



thanks,

Lito
Hello, I can send you more photos if you like off line. But to answer your question, no there is no road rash or chips. All the rubber seals, etc are in perfect condition. Since my ownership I've treated all areas regularly with sealant treatment.
 
I am still searching for my unicorn. (a loaded 2021 i3s In giga or mega world trim with almost all available options.)
in almost any color other than Black.
For example, searching for BMW-used cars on the BMW USA website occasionally raises good prospects.
Here is a non-sport 2021, for example, that ticks a lot of the boxes other than the sunroof and HK sound system

And I search all major websites for used i3s several times a week, looking for 2021s coming off of a 3-year lease, but all the ones that do tick all my boxes some times absurdly overpriced,

Hi,

I just bought 2 i3s from Greenlight Auto in LA. Both with low miles, fully loaded and both qualified for the used EV rebate. Ended up at the $18k mark with all fees etc. Shipped them home and both are in great condition and have no issues at all. I have no affiliation with them but they do seem to find some good i3s cars with reasonable prices. One was 2021 and the other was 2020. The Fiat is also electric!

I love my Imperial Blue. At some point it is going to the detailers to be polished and detailed. However, even with a good wash and dry at home it looks real good. In fact I think the colours on all i3's are very nice (I do have a soft spot for the gold though!).

How do you keep the black one swirl free?
