FWIW, unlike an ICE, the i3 doesn't have a big penalty for using the higher acceleration as long as you don't go above your cruising speed, then have to slow back down. Once at speed, a steady pace...

Hope that it is still under warranty! I've read of others that had issues with theirs. I almost never open mine, and would prefer it not even be there. In Germany, it's a 1750-Euro option - way...

Someone had one of their air springs fail on the road...it was obvious, not subtle. A car without a spring will not drive or handle well at all.

The car hauls ass (fastest BMW sold to 40mph)! At least in the environment of a stoplight to stoplight runs of a city. And, you can do it without feeling bad about it.
