I for one and happy about the 'i' line of vehicles. Fast forward 10 years, and I think that line of vehicles will really be the cream of the crop. In some ways it already is, though I think the design of the i3 could be improved a bit. The i8, however, is absolutely beautiful.
There's much more to the i8 than to how it looks, leaving it at just looks is doing a disservice to it. It's vehicles like the i8 that show the real potential of this tech within the industry and of course with what BMW themselves can accomplish.
