    Thanks for taking the time for the write up Ken, I love the look of the them and you have most certainly peeked my interest. Thanks.

    I got a quick guide quote last week from my broker, as a new policy (i.e. no N/C) of €2k. So if I was transferring an existing policy with full N/C, you can half that. No points, no claims, etc etc
    They indicated most companies will not quote.

    And a bit of hunting around would probably find a better quote. However I expect the thought of repairing a bit of CF bodywork might scare some.

    See production of the i8 is finishing up in April.

    Hard to believe it's been in production for seven years.

    Sad in some ways, but I still have mixed views on the i8. I feel like BMW could have done so much more with it, especially after talking to some of the engineers that quietly developed some more interesting prototype derivatives of it. I wonder what the values will be like in a few more years and how it will be seen in the future.

    What else were they planning?

    Different engine instead of the 3 cylinder Mini one?

    Not so much officially planning, more of a skunkworks thing of stuff they had made to show the product people. Much larger engines/power outputs etc, including a hydrogen one.

    Some of those could have been interesting 😉

    Wasnt the 1M a sort of skunkworks car?

    There is an i4 coming, due in 2021 with an 80kWh battery. More details along with pics of it and the electric SUV (possibly to be called the iX) here: https://www.completecar.ie/car-news/...lectric-saloon
