Re: Sayonara i-MiEV, hallo i3!

What did the i3 cost and what did they give you for a trade-in for your iMiEV? The i3 closest to our ideal i3 was a mid trim level model with DC fast charging, neither of which we wanted in Honolulu. Those options added $2,400 to the MSRP which was $48,200 including a $950 destination charge. I tol...

Re: Sayonara i-MiEV, hallo i3!

Freewheeling is possible in neutral, pulling the lever back one click. The i3 does a very neat trick in neutral, too. It'll back the friction brakes off so that the first bit of brake pedal travel is pure regen, then they blend, all while in neutral. I'll have to give that a try. But be prepared wh...

Sayonara i-MiEV, hallo i3!

Short version On 5 November, we traded in our 2012 i-MiEV for a 2014 BMW i3 BEV . As a result, I will no longer be an active member of this forum but will become an active member of its sister MyBMWi3 forum. I have really enjoyed participating in this forum and have learned so much from the many kn...

For sale: 2012 IMiEV Service Manual CD

It appears that only ~2,000 North American i-MiEV's will ever exist. Because few mechanics or body shops will be familiar with the i-MiEV, owning the i-MiEV Service Manual, Body Repair Manual, and Technical Information Manual will be crucial so that either you will be able to repair your own i-MiEV ...

Re: got an app for that?

As for the lack of an Apple app which you found an Android app for . . . . that's the big difference between Android and Apple . . . . anybody with a little programming knowledge can create an Android app . . . . it's much harder to do for Apple products Don, I'm afraid you're incorrect about the r...

Re: got an app for that?

The i-MiEV doesn't include an Internet connection that would allow communication with a smart phone app while away from the car as is possible with the Leaf, the Tesla Model S, and maybe a few other EV's. This requires a cellular data plan that is usually included for a couple of years in the purcha...

Re: Sprung spring sound every time I drive forward

There is a thunk that occurs when pulling away after having been parked as you describe. This is normal and is something that the antilock brake system does. However, I don't know whether this is the sound that you're hearing. I wouldn't describe it as a "boing", and it sounds to me like i...
