Drives and feels like a BMW is all you really need to take from this review. That alone should get many to strongly consider the i4 period.

Does nobody here enjoy watching TSP? I think their content is fantastic and entertaining. I trust their reviews.

I really like the carbon fiber interior trim and think it helps lighten the load of this otherwise heavy car.
This was a hilariously subtle and deadpan dig.

TSP get on my nerves a lot for one reason or another and I very much enjoy Throttle House over them but too each their own. I definitely see the appeal and they're not awful by any means.

I for one am glad people like them are doing car reviews and enjoy watching them. Not my favorite but can be entertaining and give honest reviews.

Most of these people don't have any financial backing so don't expect amazing videography or scripts, they are trying their best to be different and informative. TH and autogefuhl (minus the constant leather comments, we get it) are my favorites, Carwow can be okay at times.

For all it's worth: BMW i4 M50 is on the short list if one needs an EV right now. Is it perfect? Probably not. Is it a better alternative for those that prefer a vehicle that hasn't forgotten the driver? Absolutely.

They are an acquired taste and not taken too seriously, but I do enjoy watching many of their videos. Good review and about what I expected.

I'm really, really REALLY over the "YouTuber EV face" when launching the car. I mean, come on. Outside of a Plaid, does anyone actually react like that? no.

TSP is my favorite YT channel for cars. Well, them and the likes of Chris Harris. I try to keep it simple.
