Why would someone just not use a regular socket for 8 hours, instead of paying up to $2000 for a BMW charger that only saves 2 hours of charge time?

Some people will feel safer using a BMW support product. There is likely other features that are beneficial that haven't been mentioned yet. Be prepared for your dealer to sell you on it

I really hope there is lots of fast charge stations at downtown locations in major cities

I hope to remember to plug the car in every night!! Waking up to a dead car would not be good.

If you have the app installed on your phone, and your like mostly everyone with their phone, then I'm sure it will remind you to plug it in. And I'm sure you don't have to plug the car in every night unless your racking up a ton of miles everyday!

I was honestly hoping to plug it in once a week depending on my driving amount. I don't want this car to be a hassle. It should be simialr to putting gas in your current car with all the same indicators.

If you live in the UK, you can have a charger fitted free!

Free Homecharge Offer

For 95 you can have a 7KW version.

Yes, and the 7kW version will recharge an i3 in around 3 hours.
