Just got the above. What a fantastic drive.

Is wheel alignment an issue with them? Looks like tyres are wearing on sides.

Also, if anyone is looking for a large Nav screen for i3 I have one, brand new, as was going to buy an older i3 and upgrade.

Was that the vehicle north of Manchester at electriccarsuk.com?

I almost went for that as keyless entry is a must for me (and quite rare seemingly) but found a very similar blue one instead.

I noticed the same on my tyres but pressures were all normal, hopefully someone can advise - I think it might be where they are measured - I know they start with a little less tread on them than normal tyres

No, it was at a small independent. £500 more but slightly newer and lower miles. Doesn't have the Harmon Kardon or privacy glass that yours has but does have the ’loft Interior’ which is what made my final decision on my one over your one a few weeks back. Enjoy it!

Apple CarPlay was a super easy retrofit too.

Re wheel alignment, I have a suspicion that with the i3 wheel alignment is critical, ours has nit been touched since new in late 2016 and the tyres wear very evenly also there is a lot of criticism about high speed stability but with ours we have found even in the worst coastal storms we have here at 70 mph in crosswinds that lift the wipers from the screen it hold a true line with very little effort keeping it straight, I wonder if when the alignment is slightly off (or more) that ruins the high speed stability we hear about.

If you have uneven wear I’d take it to a well respected four wheel alignment specialist.
