Possible to upgrade 2015 i8 batteries?

I just got my practically new (only 3K miles) 2015 i8 a few months ago, and LOVE it! I see that the new i8 has more battery power, and wonder if itís possible/feasible to upgrade my i8...

TIA,
Bruce in Seattle

Curious how many miles on your car and what did you pay for it?
Looking into buying one myself
I don't think the battery can be upgraded. And even if it could you would have to reprogram the computer which is next to impossible without special BMW tools

No, you cannot upgrade the batteries.
