I love the car.
I have owned two bmws, including the original 1600 back 40 years ago, T5 turbo volvos, and an audi -- all sticks but the audi.
this is the perfect commuter car. fun to drive, cheap to drive, subsidized, pollution free, runs of the roof, hitech inside with handsfree and good nav.
the range suits almost all of my driving, except for long trips. I am not an outside sales person or a reporter. I go to work and stay there. I do some trips after work, but I can plug in at work when I need to.
I am not looking for 530i pickup and handling on the commute on the 405 or the city streets.
i cant believe i traded a 2k bill for gasoline for 0 in power costs. the worst case scenario, without the solar that powers my house and has juice left over for the car, is about $10 a month.
are there things I would fix?
starting with lights on the power port and the locks and window buttons, plus better regeneration options.
