Re: Cracked Windscreen

My insurers referred me to auto glass, they are trying to find out when they can get hold of a screen. They said it needs to go into one of their workshop as they cant do it on the drive. Luckily the ID3 is our little runabout so no big if its out of action for a while.

Re: Totally dead

thanks, took matters into my own hands after the dealer advised me not to condition the battery myself. I didn't want too boost or charge it incase the Battery Management System threw a hissy fit giving the dealer cause to blame me. Not wanting to get stranded either I put weight on the drivers seat...

Re: To Charge to 80%... or to 100%?

Our previous BMW I3s used to warn you if the charge was low not to leave them in a low state of charge for Prolonged periods. Being into radio controlled cars I always assumed it was similar to the LiPo scenario in that storing at a low state of charge is not healthy for the battery.

Re: opening passenger door

there's an option somewhere in the options for global unlocking I had to turn it on for ours. its not obvious but find the screen with the picture of the car and spin it to move through vehicle settings for exterior and interior.

Re: ID3 Home Charging

My dealers still waiting for equipment to upgrade ours now I’ve got a work around for timed charging I’ll wait for 2.1. I’ve kind of got used to ignoring all the other “features”
