Bmw i8 pathetic

Everyone including BMW is following Tesla and by most counts a good 3-5 years behind.

Don't fall for the sheet metal design alone. Tesla and Toyota have the majority of patents.

I am not sure, but I like the white stitching for the leather. Unfortunately it does not carry through to the center console.

HUD reflection on the windshield

The HUD we get is the same tech developed by Siemens a very long time ago. 1970's ish. The box was in Pontiacs in the mid 90's.

It is very archaic by today's standards.

I am not sure about the F10. In the past the NAV option added other features like a more capable voice recognition.

Without it I am not sure what you lose beyond NAV.

Is the suspension broken?:dunno:

It does not look like the car is even drivable which detracts from the marketing message. :eeps:

2014 LCI Production is underway

I did not realize LCI's have to be recertified for cosmetic changes. Are you referring to EPA or safety?

Why not get another X3? Any car could potentially have issues and be bought back. You are not reducing the risk switching.

I have had several BMW's. My advice is to leave the software alone unless you are having issues.

Every update fixes bugs and introduces more bugs.
