Default Would you buy the i3?

With a new 94 Ah battery and a new color offer Protonic Blue, would you buy the new 2017 i3?

no. I drove one. It drives decently, but it is absolutely frigging hideous.

It has a lot of head room which is surprising but I can't get passed the looks.

no one can, which is why my local dealer has a row of them sitting in the parking lot collecting dust.

BMW really missed the boat on the i3. It should never have hit market with sub-100 mile all electric range for one, and it should have looked like a BMW instead of something you'd see roving the lunar surface with Neil Armstrong at the controls. If it looked like a normal car I'd probably have one sitting in my driveway right now.
