A recent visit to the Newtis information site revealed the following statement:
Site Closed
This site is closed per demands of BMW AG.
BMW recommends the official and up-to-date BMW TIS which can be accessed at www.bmwtis.com*.
* However, we believe that BMW violates the right to repair by effectively locking out individual consumers from basic repair information through unreasonably high access fees.*.

For me, this is another nail in the coffin of BMW getting a repeat order from me.
I bought an i3 in 2018 because it was an i3, NOT because I 'aspired' to be a BMW Owner.
I had not decided what to do after the 3 year warranty expires. It is still possible I shall continue to run the i3 out of warranty until something better comes along (Better = more suitable for me).
So far I am not 'excited' by an ordinary car that happens to have an electric power train installed.

Regards.

But I guess every manufacturer will go the way of electrifying ordinary cars as that is the only way to drive costs down. The development of the i3 was a moment in time!!
