Ian,

What do you get when you leave two M's unsupervised in a garage? You get a baby "i" :-P

Thank you very much for all the quick replies to my questions! I do to, when traffic permits, have my cruise control set at 90 (outskirts of L.A.) with my other 3 (I know, some people don't consider the M235i a real M - electric PS). As for this one, it's a nice change of pace to drive it like I'm playing a video game by trying to keep the needle to the left side :-) My only gripe is the need for constant attentive steering corrections. Probably because I'm not used to the bicycle tires. Other than that, it is a hoot and a half to drive!

Lol, they’re multiplying! Got some coloration from each of its parents. Glad you’re enjoying it.

A friend of mine just picked up his new i3 this morning. His daily commute is 120-160 miles. Probably won’t miss going to the gas station every other day, as he previously was!

... and I have another friend on the hunt for his.

I forgot to add some important events...

Bought the car from Crevier, approx 75 miles away. When I got home, I had about 19 left. I plugged her in for the first time. I saw the white light ring light up, I thought that meant charging, not having read the manual yet. I go in, start reading the manual. I then realize I need to see flashing blue. I go out to her, and she wasn't charging. SoI pull out the charging handle to reseat it, the whole assembly comes along! It's as if someone at the dealership left it plugged in, drove off, realized what happened and shoved the charging assembly back in.

I call my salesman immediately the next day and he swears that the assembly was firm when he charged the car (I called him 2 hours prior to my arrival and asked him to charge it so I can see if there was any degradation to the battery). Since I was past 50 miles, they couldn't send a tow service. They advised to use the closest stealership from me, Rusnak, and pay for it and they'll reimburse me. NO THANK YOU. Called back again and told me they will cover the bill from Rusnak. Big props to Santiago Cordoba at Crevier for making it right!

You can’t drive the car with something plugged in, so something else must have happened

Didn't know that. I thought you could make the "gas pump is still attached" mistake.

So...it was sitting at the dealership for 9 weeks. I'm certain they would've noticed if the PO damaged it. It was as if someone just shoved it back in and matched the cracks so no one would notice, 'cuz I carefully plugged in the charging cable since it was my first time and it easily came attached to the cable upon retrieval. The charging cable made enough contact at the tips of the 5 prongs to elicit the white ring to light up.

Oh, the invoice came out to $1,500.55 = $905.36 was for the part.

I don't think it would make it there unrestricted. Don't forget that EV dynos look like this:

Although the i3 doesn't look to fall off as hard
