Re: Any members in New Zealand ?

Just seeing if anyone has joined the forum from New Zealand ,I have done 5000k since May and love the car ,my Audi rs4 has hardly moved. I've been looking and test drove an i3 but still undecided. After owning many BMW's I thought the i3 would corner well and have supportive front seats but it did ...

Re: New i3 maybe

This is like texting I never check but you know. What I was saying which was and simple the steering and seating of the i3 needs to be improved. Was it not you that start saying things about New Zealand. So I wrote a few truths about the 2 countries. I've moved on and will not be purchasing the non ...

Re: New i3 maybe

You don't know how old I am I've been driving for 43 years. It's not racing but I don't drive like a nanny I enjoy corners the straight roads don't interest me much. We have had many Austrians killed in the last few days, 4 just yesterday and looks like Australians have lost their way to drive as th...

Re: Changes for 2015 model

I would have thought the narrow tires on the i3 would be excellent in average roads with snow on them to work fine. Most really bad mountain pass roads are closed this time of year. An 4x4 would be better if your living in above average snow as batteries are not the best in these conditions.

Re: New i3 maybe

I've been to NZ a number of times. It's a lovely place to visit. The opportunities to use a high performance car in NZ are extremely limited. The roads are narrow with tight verges, there is a lot of slow traffic and the distances between cities is populated with little towns and villages so the op...

Re: LET'S BUILD THE CALIFORNIA WEST COAST ELECTRIC HIGHWAY

Who's to say batteries are best and why should the tax payer pay for an minority group who are not saying the truth about their pollution and running costs. So you are going to dig large holes in the ground to mime copper and it can take years of digging this large hole just to find copper. If we ev...

Re: New i3 maybe

So what is your average daily drive, Kiwi? I work from home so I'm hardly ever in rush hour and don't really have a daily drive other than most would be motorway in town and out in the country side 30%. during the week.

Re: New i3 maybe

I live in Auckland and the i3REX is the only i3 BMW is bringing into NZ. Auckland traffic and size is really small compared to Australia and Kiwis love to get out and about you would be crazy to spend all those dollars on an i3 just to drive down the road and back or you have money burning a hole in...

Re: New i3 maybe

It's a shame as in New Zealand their is city driving but it's not huge as other countries. Our roads outside the city are single lane both ways and tight. I may have to buy a 220i M Sport convertible and keep my 6 month old 116i M Sport. Petrol cost is only $1800.00 per year for both cars.

New i3 maybe

I'm so not sure as I've had an i3 out for an over night test drive but I'm so used to my BMW cars with M Sport and found the i3 steering and suspension a little sloppy and the seat pulls my back at the bottom of the neck. I'm not sure I gave the i3 enough test time so I may ask for another test driv...
