If you have a new car, chances are you have been told by your mechanic that you need to buy a new one.
That’s not necessarily true, but there’s a reason it’s so common: the BMW i5 is an excellent example of the i3’s appeal.
So, in a bid to get an i3, it’s a great time to start building one yourself.
If you want to get started, here are some of the things you need and don’t need to know before you get started.
What’s the difference between an i5 and an i7?
An i5, the name given to the i5 family of models, is a bit of a mouthful, but it’s pretty simple: the i7 and i7 Plus share a similar base model, the i8, which is a little bit smaller than the i6 but offers the same performance and value.
How much does a new i3 cost?
If your car’s warranty is up for renewal, it might be worth asking your dealer to see what they’re paying for the car.
The standard i3 costs $33,700 (€29,500), while the higher-end i5 costs $35,100 (€33,500).
Which parts are necessary?
There’s a lot of information out there on how to build a new vehicle.
If you want a reliable, practical machine, you need all the bits you’ll need to build it.
Can you get a better car with a bigger engine?
The i3 has an engine that’s a little bigger than a Ford Focus RS, but its a big step up from the base i5’s engine.
What does a turbocharged i3 engine mean for a car?
Turbocharged engines offer the quickest way to get more power out of a vehicle than conventional petrol engines.
How do I change the oil in my i3?
Oil is the big unknown in a new turbocharged engine.
You’ll need a good-quality oil pump, and a good oil filter and filter holder, to make sure the oil stays clean.
Can I get a BMW i4 without buying a manual transmission?
A manual transmission is a nice, convenient option for people who don’t want to buy an automatic or want to keep things simple.
What happens if I buy a manual?
You won’t get an automatic transmission on your i3.
How can I get one of the more expensive models?
Buying a new, higher-priced car will cost more than a lower-priced one, so you’ll want to look at the price you want first.
What do I get if I purchase a manual from the dealer?
All the parts you need will be included with the manual transmission.
You will also get a manual transfer case.
What if I need a manual for an i4?
It’s not necessary to buy the manual, but you’ll have to buy one to get one.
How long will it take to build one?
Build a new manual transmission on the same day you’ll build your car.
You should expect to build the transmission in about four to six weeks.
How many engines can I fit in a car with four doors?
More than one.
If your i7 is a hatchback, it may be possible to fit as many as four turbocharged engines into a hatch.
How big are the rear wheels?
For the most part, a hatch will need to have a minimum of five or six front wheels.
How to adjust the suspension?
Adjust the springs.
How is the steering?
Suspension is a key part of a modern car.
If the car has good suspension, you should be able to do most of the steering.
You don’t have to worry about it too much, but when the front wheel gets too low or too high, it won’t go as well.
What about the brakes?
These are the same as the front brakes, but with a few exceptions.
If there’s too much travel or the road surface isn’t level, you won’t be able see through the rear window and the brakes won’t help.
How hard is the clutch?
Harder than it sounds.
You have to have the right gear for the road and your hands will be working overtime.
How does the suspension work?
When the wheels hit the ground, they don’t hit the brakes.
The wheels don’t contact the ground at all, but the suspension acts as a damper, reducing the amount of road pressure.
How fast can the car go?
To go fast, the car needs to be able keep its centre of gravity down.
