BMW i8 tips from a real owner.

 

BMW i8 tips from a real owner.

  • The MPG for 880 miles was 35.1.
  • Before doing anything else, turn on “Prefer Expressways” in Navigation Options, or the Navigation system will take you throughout the river and through the woods to achieve the fastest route , even it takes 3 exits and a lot of time to get out of the woods.
  • Turn off “Sport” when entering a parking, not to get an agressive car and to move reverse easier.
  • The little box on the climate display named “AUTO” is about the energy intensity the auto setting has, it has five positions.
  • The back seat is not adjusted for a high person about 5′, people are feeling not very comfortable in back.
  • It is not very comfortable to get out of the car because of the unconventional doors. It can be an issue but not for everyone.

BMW i3 tuned by Eve.Ryn

 

The Japanese thought that BMW i3 would need a stilling from them. So people from Eve.Ryn  thought that BMW i3 could be more imposing, so they have worked on an aesthetic and a little aggressive kit. They didn’t stop only at the look of i3 but they also made the wheels of 20 inches and they modified the angle of wheels(the stance treatment that is more popular in the world of tuning )

We don’t know if the electric motor was modified so we can just look and admire the tuning of the BMW i3.
