Interesting. I've been told in my area of SoCal (San Gabriel Valley), it's fairly uncommon to get stopped and ticketed for the missing front plate. In my case, I never mounted the front plate on my 550i and haven't been stopped in over 3 years. Apparantly it is very common to get a ticket for it if one is stopped for another reason, but rare that they will actually pull you over because of the missing plate.

Freshly detailed

Admittedly it is not an inspiring background but I was a little sceptical about how glossy Protonic Blue could be until I saw what the detailers had achieved. Multistage paint correction (before and after photo shows that the factory finish certainly had some issues) followed by Gtechniq CS Ultra Black Ceramic Protection and some PPF on the door sills to protect against scratches getting in and out. Getting it glossy with a coating is one thing but sorting out the paintwork to get razor sharp reflections is quite another thing.

Kudos to Nick White at SL Restoration.

2019 i8 Coupe in Southern California

Some shots from my first week of ownership, including the first shots taken the morning of Earth Day (April 22) in front of L.A.'s iconic Griffith Observatory. Love the car and love taking pics of it in SoCal.

850 is still a good-looking car, IMHO. I loved those. But that was way before the time I could afford nice cars ...

Above the Clouds on Angeles Crest Highway

Despite clouds at lower elevations this morning, I climbed further into the mountains above my home in Southern California and took these shots of my 2019 Coupe. Now three weeks old with 1700 miles and I'm loving it more each day. I intend to ease off on the mileage soon, but have a road trip to Vegas next weekend first. I'll be sure to share more photos.

Talking Leeds Castle last weekend








Hundreds of cars on display. Plenty of Ferrari, McLaren, Lambos. Only 1 i8


There was a "Need For Speed" run through the crowd (short narrow strip of road) for the supercars. i8 was invited too of course

Supercars roared through the crowd....so naturally, I did it silently in e-drive
