    Saying a tuner charges 2k to only tell you you won 10hp is a lie!. You make it sound like the car is 5 minutes in the dyno and all they do it is to copy a map... The reason you get charged this kind of prices, is because the car has to be adjust to the specific conditions you are running (ageing of the car in general, fuel and fuel quality, modifications done, etc), which implies performing proper MBT tuning, knock detection and proper fuelling, there is a lot of work involved than just copying an e-tune from internet into a ECU. Just loading a tune differs a lot from a proper tuning process... Many times is not even a good match for the car and ends up damaging engines...

    The BMW i8 is nothing short of a supercar. My friend lent me his to test drive for a week as I'm torn between porsche panamera and bmw i8 and the i8 omg what an amazing car. It genuinely is the easiest car to drive ever and performance is amazing and doors and seats really feel like you are driving a lambo, I've leaned towards the panamera only as the back doors help with my 22 month old baby and I just struggle so much to get her in the back of the i8. But if you want a supercar for not super car money the i8 is the car for you, it's 100% consumed me.

A Tesla Software Engineer let me try his personal car for about twenty minutes (Thank you Syed). I don't have an electric car yet but once you try that leccie acceleration, no mistaking it for anything else, you want it!

    Funny BMW uses (and i’m sure it’s due to space/weight) a manual set up with the pedals and I’m not surprised seeing how you have to get creative to hold the frunk open but it just looks funny there’s not a full size brake pedal like most automatics have. Looks like it’s missing the clutch are most sports cars these days 😕 Ignoring the performance aspect of it, I like the i8 for its looks even though I wish the rear looked as aggressive as the front but overall looks good. Just lacking the power but... that can be changed.
