▀▄ eas | i8 Coding Feature Demo

Here's a quick video demoing off some commonly programmed features in an i8, all features (and more) can be applied to i3 models as well.



Feel free to respond with any questions.

Open Frunk with FOB? I thought the frunk was held in via manual latches that are released within the door sills?

That sounds like one of the i3 features.

Exactly. And as I understand it, it's a two-person job to open it, so you don't flex it too much. Nothing of interest lies underneath, I'm told ...

Interesting to see. Most of those features came as standard on my European model. You probably have to thank American liability lawyers for your trimmed-back versions ...

Unfortunately, we do not perform coding remotely. If you are in the Anaheim, CA area we would be happy to help.

Most likely, or licensing agreements between manufacturers. What is warranty term length on your side of the pond?

Very simple, we use a 64GB Flash drive to demo the feature. Standard file formats (avi, mpg, xvid, etc) can be played - no flash or DRM content. Using the roller control on your steering allows the table of contents to be displayed on your instrument cluster or you can use the iDrive controller on to choose videos.

Music and podcasts can also be stored on the drive for playback.

Can you pm me pricing on the coding as well? Angel eyes, video playback, etc. Is it price per feature? I will be in the LA area on Monday picking up my i8. How long does it take? Thanks

Can you clarify the frunk question? It seems like your summary at the end includes a lot of i3 items (range extender?)
