The seats are cool....


I like the i3... But this one... Not so much.

50 already sold out? Yeah, pretty sure the M4 GTS won't be sitting around on lots either.

BMW is doing well! Keep the train a Rollin'

More models are needed! More customers await ! Plenty of room for 2 series gran coupe and M2 CSL

BMW will have to accept they made a horrible looking car eventually.
The only way to make this car attractive, is by including it as a gift when you buy an i8.

Disagree. If you're going to buy an electric car, why not be funky? I like it.

Stupid to make this a limited edition. Just sell it as a trim package. Looks like the pricing is normal.

Perhaps they are rolling this out and then the special items will be options later? I'd buy one without the sunroof, but with those seats...

And if you weren't watching the live Periscope reveal, you didn't get one.
Interesting that BMW chose Periscope as the media outlet for the reveal (as with the M2).
Very cool that the presenter responded to questions by Periscope viewers.

Couldn't disagree more. I'm as much of a performance loving M-junkie like the rest of us but I think that as far as futuristic looking electric cars go, the i3 and i8 are the best looking of the bunch. The only exception i can make are maybe the Teslas. Consumers love the quirky futuristic styling of the BMW i-division

I like how the i3 is on the floor with a cord hanging out the side of the car. When they debut other cars, like the new M2, why don't they have a gasoline pump hose hanging out the side of the car?

I assume it is done to reemphasize the car as being electric - but they think we really don't understand that by now?

True. If BMW gave me one of these, I would have to first slap it (because it is so ugly) and then give it back (because I would rather walk than drive this thing.

Seriously?

I sold my ZHP to buy one. You really should go drive one before blasting it for no good reason. WTF?

You and others talking smack here would be very surprised how many M3, ZHP and other top notch BMW owners sold their top notch cars and bought i3's.

I would be one of those very surprised. Was at a dealer today that had a M4 and I3 next to each other. Would blow my mind if a large amount of M3/4 buyers were rushing to trade them in for it. Totally different genres.

And those door panels.

I much prefer the i3 as my daily driver and if I wanted a weekend/fun car, I'd grab something a little more sporty (I've got my eyes on a GT4...).

Won't it go shorter distance because of he moon roof? Well at least you won't feel claustrophobic when you're thumbing a ride.
