Having my previous i3 battery to be used by the ability when it is time for you to change it'd make it better yet. I actually have 52,000 miles on my i3. If I keep the vehicle long-term (still undecided on that), I Will likely need a fresh battery in 2 to 3 years when I've about 120,000 miles about the odometer.
