As exciting as the 4 Series Convertible was, it was no match for the popularity of the production version of the BMW i8. The lines waiting for a chance to sit in the i8 were long but those who were able to wait it out seemed to be excited about the car. The i8 has just as much of a presence in the production version as it did when the concept car made it's rounds in the past year and many were overheard saying they couldn't believe this was the production car. When the i8 comes to an auto show near you, make sure to get out and see the car in person to see just what all the fuss was about.

The X4 looked great in person but is expected to be lose some of the more exterme elements when the production versoin rolls around next year. The car follows the tradition of some more recent BMW models in that it looks better in person that it does in photos.
