If you are in the US, and you are a member of the BMW Car Club of America (and if not, why not?!?)...

Check out the September 2016 issue of Roundel magazine. There are two articles on i8s. The second one is mine: Maui I8.

Aloha!

I own no garage queens. If it is in my driveway, it's been ridden hard and put away wet. ...and now, with a light crust of Maine road salt.

Very cool! I read the article - only two i8s in Hawaii if I recall what the article said correctly. Beautiful car and beautiful islands.

How did it do on the track?--going to Watkins Glen soon, a bit worried about tire and brake wear! Did you fully charge it before starting?

It did fine. Lots of fun. But it's not really intended as a track car. I went through a fully charged battery in only 2 or 3 laps. Then all you have is the spunky little 1.5 liter, which actually does pretty damn well considering.

Yes, you'll want to fully charge it before starting... then, if at all possible, you'll want to find a Level 2 charger between sessions. The 110v charger will get you only about 1/3 battery full after 2 hours. Just enjoy those first couple of laps, and the blue ring of e-boost!

Fill up the gas tank between every session. It's only 11 gallons, so the weight isn't really an issue. I found that I used just about 1/2 tank during each 30 minute session on Laguna. (8 mpg! ) You don't want to run out at the end of a 2nd session.

Tires? I had a brand new set on the car. (<500 miles) They did fine. They sure aren't R-compounds, but they aren't terrible.

Brakes? No real issues. A touch of fading, as would be expected of street compound brake pads. Just be aware of it, and adjust your braking points.

Have fun. Be safe. Drive it home.
