Why did you choose this car?
Fun, different and light composite sustainable construction.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • FUN
  • Surprisingly big inside for the size of the car
  • Futuristic design.


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • Really no negatives 🙂 but BMW could make a BMW i3M AWD but that’s not the cars fault!
  • Could do with a 1 big touch screen like Tesla but no problem really.


Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Turns on a penny and I actually like the artificial sound it makes, burns off most old toxic ice cars at the lights 😂😂. Cheap to run and a great deal from BMW; BMW Dealer 5 star service too! 😎


What EV are you interested in next and why?
Tesla but if BMW make a composite light fast 2 door open top at a good price…😃👍


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Yes, had it for 10 years from original government scheme. 3kw ok for us with PV.


What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?


What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Polar but the network needs sorting out. The government is in the pockets of big toxic fossil fuels, the more EVs on sale and on the road, the better. When we stop burning toxic fossil, the EV network will get better 🙂👍


Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Not sure, my wife does it online, must look around 🤔
