Once again, BMW took the advantage of the cold weather by deploying the i3 electric vehicle for winter test drive. It is not like we are hoping too much, but judging by the camouflage sheet, we predict that the introductory for this new i3 could be at Paris Auto Show because Geneva Motor Show is way too close unless BMW already planned to unveil this electric vehicle at the Sweden auto event.

  1. Im selling my ’98 Buick for $4000 and that i received a trade offer for any 2000 BMW 328i, however it does not run due to the blown mind gaskets.

  2. I lately bought a 2003 BMW 525i from the dealer and also the last owner mounted a telephone around the passenger side dash. Also there’s an antenna placed on the trunk window towards the top. I’m not so good with these types of jobs but what is the website or would the user guide have directions to un-install this? Or should I’m guessing to some professional? If that’s the case could someone estimate the price! Thanks ahead of time!
