Whether you’ve been an i3 owner for 6 years or you just bought a used one, these accessories could add additional functionality or a sleek look to your already modern-looking German EV.
First we’ll start with the interior of the i3. While BMW’s factory mats do an okay job of keeping your car clean, they’re no match for purpose-designed all-weather mats. These TOUGHPRO mats not only look nice, but work well to keep your i3 floors looking pristine.
Kick Mats (Seat Back Protectors)
Are you one of the many daring parents who own an i3? Even if you just use your EV for transporting groceries and boxes, you can protect the back of your eco-seats with these seat back protectors. They provide extra organization with 4 pockets each, 2 being mesh. Aaand they come in 4 natural colors that should match well will any i3 interior.
If you leave in a place where the temperatures rise to an uncomfortable level, you may want to invest in a sunshade. Not only does it add comfort to your i3 experience, but it will also save you some 🔋 battery life too. Any energy your car doesn’t spend having to cool down the cabin means extra range for your trip.
This isn’t as much an accessory as much as the thing that will allow you to charge your i3 in 4.5 hours instead of like 15. This charger outputs 7.2kW of power, placing it comfortably in the “level 2” range of chargers. This is the one I’ve used for 3 years now, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience with it.
This charger also comes with a warranty of 3 years covering outdoor or indoor use and is highly rated for reliability among Amazon purchasers.
Steering Wheel Cover
Okay, hear me out on this one. No, the steering wheel that comes standard on the i3 isn’t uncomfortable per se, but it isn’t the comfiest thing to grasp all day either. This steering wheel should add some comfort while not sacrificing the unique style of the i3 interior.
And if you believe this redditor, apparently the 14.25″ version fits the i3’s wheel perfectly.
You’re bound to lose these pesky things one day, might as well have a replacement set on-the-ready with mini BMW logos for extra flare.
Blind Spot Mirrors
For our last recommendation, we take driving safety into account. While the i3 is relatively small and nimble, it has some nasty blind-spot action in the back. These small mirrors attach to your factory mirrors and give you an extended field of view. They’re small and don’t take away from the polished look of the i3 exterior.
