This is a great car for everyday driving, but pulls like any other supercar
I bought this car 3 years ago, as I loved the looks, performance, economy and the fact that it was a head turner. 3 years on not much has changed. its still a great car and I love it.
Well overall, getting in and out of the car can be a bit of a problem if you not used to it. I have found my way to do it gracefully. Its a very comfortable car, with good rear space our 2 kids. Back seats work for a kid up to 12/14 years old. Boot space is enough for our weekly shopping. The car has a good driving position, full electric seats which are very adjustable.
The handling is very good. Holds it own against Porsche's, Aston Martins and M6's and been ahead of them all. It does make noise, but of course that is enhanced by a speaker. Very sharp brakes. Overall the car is lkike being in a 7 series but with a supercar body.
No major petrol car costs as this is a hybrid ish car. I have the service pack included, which includes top ups for fluids etc as well as parts. There is a Service pack that covers tires too, so no major costs here. I spend £40 every 2-3 weeks on petrol. A full charge is around £0.70 for 25 miles. Unlike my i3 which is fully electric, the i8 is hybrid. When the battery dead, the car switched to petrol and starts charging the battery. You can choose the driving mode. No major bills in the last few years since I got the car.
Futuristic looks, unique styling, very different colour which I choose from the factory as I loved it. The car gets a lot of looks on the road, as it does look very different overall
Every current feature included. USB charge, apple carplay, android auto, 360 camera, Harman Kardon, all digital displays, electric seats mirrors, memory packs. Everything you would expect from a super car, from BMW.
If you have the money you should buy one.
