Skinny narrow tires chosen for Eco do not -> feel.
Michelin PS4s are better rubber. The steering is a tad 'heavier' with wider sizes, but 'feel' is improved as long as unsprung weight is not increased.

Part of the steering and handling feel of the i8 stems from the superb stiff chassis.
It is not a Lotus super-7 nor even a Cayman S, but the steering is very precise for AWD.

IMO the LCI is much improved from earlier versions, particularly in sport mode.

Weight reduction helps.
