The 2016MY for the i3 is quite short...they start production of the 2017MY in July. SO, given that, I'd guess that whatever 2016's are left in May might start to get incentives to move them out. ...

Spacers all depend on the tire/wheel you have, the offset the vehicle was designed for, and the offset of the wheel you are planning to use. Changing the centerline changes the lever arm, and, if an...

This is a question, and I do not know if it is relevant, but for those that have replaced the sensor or the HPFP, do you regularly use fuel from one of the TopTier suppliers? Note that that list is...

Make sure anything you put into the tire is TPMS safe, or you'll be shelling out a bunch for a new one once you repair the wheel assembly. Some are, some aren't. It should say on the can.

IMHO, spacers, unless you're using a non-standard wheel are not a great idea. FWIW, local codes require the top of the wheel to be entirely covered by the fenders, so a spacer that moved it out...

Is the area around the camera clear and clean? If it is dirty, or the windshield is not the correct one, that area may not be clear and the camera can't do its thing.
