Thanks! I hadn't seen the breakdown before of the contents of the US trim packages.

Awesome, innovative car. It is quite beautiful. The only thing that I don't like are the twin kidney badges on the front fascia. They don't do anything and the car would be better with them.

Zadjali, thanks for the great pics! Really nice to see all these details of the sunroof and the interior.

tommolog, thanks for the package breakdown. I hope Giga won't cost much more than BMW's typical Premium package. Also, cool to see you on bimmerpost after following your ActiveE and i3 blogs!

Great to see detailed pics. Thanks!

I must be old school, but I just can't stand anything but a black steering wheel. Hopefully it's available on at least one of the trim lines.

Car looks ok for it's purpose, if I was looking at this vs Prius etc I would probably seriously consider the i3, however I think the use of the blue color around kidney grill, roundel, and rocker panels under the doors is silly and unnecessary.

Reminds me of my old Honda Element.

Too bad the total range, even with extender, is so limited.

The fact that the full panel glass roof is not part of the production car is sad by itself. Might as well have a crank, power does little to make up for the fact it is so small and almost worthless.

I'm still unclear on if the REX has the ability to keep powering the battery after the initial 80 miles (160 mile total). I know it has a 2.5 gallon capacity, so refills would have to be frequent even if it were possible to keep going after refilling the tank.
