From a 1-10, what would you have rated your experience with the i3 BEV? (been keeping my eye on it for a short hop car) My biggest concern are the tires ATM.
It?s a great car if it fits your needs. I?ve had no issues during my almost two years of ownership, but your mileage may vary. Get the BEV instead of REX as the latter are prone to a lot of issues, and it?s slower. You may be able to get an incredible deal on these cars these days.

Thanks for the advice; I was concerned about those thin tires and our choppy roads. I suppose it's not an issue.

It is supposed to be a city car, so if you live in rural area this is not for you. In the city and suburban areas it handles normal road conditions fine. The instant torque from the electric motor feels really good even compared to N55/B58, although after 30mph it will fall far behind. However in most of the stop and go situation in and around the city, there is just no comparison to i3. The infrastructure is catching up and a lot of places offers L2 charging. So depends on where you leave it could be a very compelling choice.

Thanks; I live in a suburban area that is densely populated. Average speed for every trip is no more than 29mph, max speeds being 45-50. My longest trip in it would be no more than 60 miles total and the average trip would be between 16-25 miles. Sounds like it would suit my needs fairly well but it would also be a "second car for short hops"

Came from a 97 ford escort to an 08 hyundai accent to a 2012 nissan frontier pro4x and now finally after years of day dreaming and putting in the hours. I finally got into my 2014 328 i Xdrive. First of many bimmers to come.
