    As you've got both an i8 and an i3, do you own a BMW dealership by any chance ?
    A proper car has a V12 engine in the front

    cgt, thanks

    jos, LOL

    Sy, I've seen it in a red wrap and to be honest it is not as nice as the standard colours. IMO of course. It looks good in yellow though, but I have my preferred colour

    Chriss, nope Never owned, or wanted, a BMW in fact. I just fell for the i8, and when I ordered it, I had a test drive in the i3. Liked it enough for a second test, where I borrowed the i3 for 5 days, and liked it so much I did not want to give it back. So I ordered one too

    Kyodo, yes indeed. The standard colours are white (mine), blue, dark grey and silver.

    This was my instructor driving above, but I replicated the powerslide afterwards. I found it v easy to power slide i8 on ice, Ken Block style

    The i8 was incredibly easy to 4 wheel drift powerslide. A bit harder to opposite lock powerslide, but easily achievable by pulsing the throttle and keeping it balanced with DSC fully off

    In fact I found the i8 the easiest to powerslide of all the 4WD BMWs I tried.
