First i4s to arrive in Seattle!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey all and just wanted share.. stopped by BMW Seattle to pick up something and the delivery truck pulled up! Among the various new cars were the first two i4s delivered there, including an M50!

So...of couse I snapped some pics! Just off the truck, so no detail or anything yet.

It's amazing to see the bottom.. no drive train. All just a big sheet of metal!

Goodyear tires on Seattle vehicle

It looks like the tires are Goodyear Eagle Sport. Based on the tread pattern, I think they are all season.
If this is true, what was the rear wheel size? Goodyear Eagle Sport are not available in 255/40-19.

Beautiful color!! Weird how the i4 M50 doesn't come with a body painted spoiler like my M440 does.

Can't wait to see more of the i4s in the wild!

For the i4 eDrive40 the M-Sport package is required.

For the M50 it's the tire package that gets the spoiler, fender extensions in the rear and larger brakes.

High Performance Tire Package… for the M-Sport Spoiler….. on a "M" model, I don't even want to continue….


Clearly somebody got clapped in the head wherever this car came from.

Apparently the giant curved display is not standard? Am I reading the build sheet correctly? I thought that was part of the appeal of the i4/ix? That they came with it. Honestly I would opt for the more traditional look from the g20 if this is true.

The more real world pictures I see, the more I think the huge grills work better on the EV's even if they are not required.

I'm thinking that's the charge for heads-up display which is a 1k option

I agree. I have an X5MC and even debadged the back. If you know then you know. Otherwise people have no idea what it is. Nothing like a real M.

The vehicles is on suspension blocks for transport. I've not seen an i4 M50 in person yet so I don't know how much less gap there will be once they are removed, but it will be less than there is in those photos.
