Welcome to the forum! I think you’re our first proper member 👍

Will this be your first electric car too?

Another newbie here also. I have a M50 on order. Been told the first in the north east but salesman’s licence and all that.

M50 Brooklyn Grey
Sports seats
Shadow line
Comfort pack

I did fancy the 20” wheels but the loss of range meant it wasn’t really an option for me.

Hello all.

It will indeed - test drove a Model 3 P - bonkers performance but inside, so-so. I hope BMW sort the delivery schedule, else this would be my next stop.

Hello all.
Nice spec. Same on the wheels. The 20" wheels look amazing - 285 rear section, extra flair on the rear wheel arch, but ouch... minus 50 odd miles. I went for the std 19" wheels. Also: Brooklyn Grey, Tech Plus Pack, Comfort Pack, Black with Blue Stitching, Piano Black, Individual Lights Shadow Line, Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended contents

Is my first EV so have been properly 'geeky' looking at different cars and options. The i4 actually saved the day (well on paper and info available!).Have gone for the M50 -

Portimao Blue
Vernasca black with blue stitching
Comfort pack
Tech plus pack
Visibility pack
Sunroof

Was looking at the 20" wheels but the drop in range made a no go - was originally looking at the i4 40 for the range but when specced it worked out at just £10 a month cheaper than the M50......er no brainer!! ;)

I have 20" wheels on my current BMW and whilst they look nice it also makes the ride firm, guessing as well as the drop in range it will have the same effect on the i4 too?
