It's only rear wheel drive, there's no AWD option.

Should I Trade My I8 for and M4

I am a new owner to the BMW I8, but not new to BMW. I just turned 18 and I am thinking of trading my I8 to an M4. Now before anyone asks what I am doing with an I8 at 18 years old, let's just say I live a privileged life. I don't want to go too much into that when I am seeking advice. Anyway, I am going off to college soon and don't want a car that would attract too much unwanted attention. Also, the I8 would be kind of hard (if not impossible) to charge on university campus. What should I do? M4 or keep the I8

Don't forget the i8 charges itself while you drive so technically you never have to charge from an outlet.

I would go with the M4 as your i8 is not saving on resources in America as America only has 11.1 percent of renewable total energy generation.

No one cars about your privilege. Drive what you want to drive.

WTF is "too much unwanted attention" anyway? Are you worried it will be stolen/vandalized? Insure it. Are you worried that people will look at you like a spoiled rich kid? You're headed to college. It's time to stop caring about the opinions of people who will judge you without knowing you.
