Thumbs up Just got my 2015 BMW i8

Traded in my Lamborghini Gallardo for it, LOVE IT! Love the comfort and fuel economy! It is quick too, but hopefully someone comes out with an ECU tune

Congratulations and I'm glad you're enjoying your i8. Somehow BMWi has gotten it right on many levels, with this innovative vehicle. Thanks for sharing the pics.

I love the Lamborghini colour.

Gallardo was a little flashier, mostly because of the color and sound

Did I get this right? You traded in the i8 in 6 days for an old, previous generation R8? How did that happen?

The dude is loaded, so it's probably nothing to him,

Must be nice to have that kind of expendable money- but hey/ whatever makes OP happy!

Wait until the new R8's come out this fall. Major power changes. 1st gen will take a nose dive especially if it is an 8 cyl.

The stock blue of the Gallardo is actually really nice. Congrats on the purchase of the i8 and subsequent trade-in for an R8? Enjoy!

Was I the only one who wished he kept the lambo and paved a sidewalk to the front door instead of stepping stones?
