    I’ve always been a little unsure on the styling but I saw one recently in a navy blue with black roof combo and i really liked it.

    Range is under 200 miles which would be ok for me but might not be suitable for others. I’d easily get a weeks worth (mon-fri) of driving out of a charge.

    ive also just watched a video of an i3 vs polo gti drag race and the polo won by a tenth of a second or something so these are i3’s are fast!

    Not badly priced either, with AP’s in the £897 to £2397 range.

    It certainly stands out against the AP’s on the Renault Zoe!

    Might be my next car when I am due to change again, providing it stays on the scheme of course.

    Where did you get those APs from the minimum is £1999 that I can see?

    I think Dave is another War Pensioner, the AP’s are the WPMS ones.

    Ahhhh I see! Thought it may have been a dealership giving a further discount. Would have been worth travelling for over a grand. I did notice that the dealer I phoned said ask about cash discounts whilst I was on hold.

    James your more than welcome and let’s hope its the first of many.

    We all appreciate what you do, was delighted when I saw your post this morning.

    Its been a while since I had a close look at the i3 and I think its too small for us but I will have a good look over the next couple of days.

    Whats the difference between them all? I can see the “S” is different but the rest all look the same?

    No mention of REX?

    They no longer offer the range extender.

    The only option is the 120, standard or s (which gives a bit more power and a little less range)

    Still trying to work out the difference in models/prices, there should only be two options in reality, the prices may relate to extra bits – we will get to the bottom of it.


    @brydo
    , that was the shortest campaign in history, we should feel very proud. ha ha.

    just back from bmw chesterfield and they dont know either what the differences are. they didnt know it was on the scheme or that the x1 was off.lol. they are going to find out and let me know.

    it is an odd fish but it does everything i want so i am happy theres an option to go to.

    playing with the configorator etc i am guessing the differences are the interiours loft,lodge,suite. but the i3s has an extra option so that may throw that idea.

    my guess is

    bmw i3 e120ah ap £897 =loft.   = bmw i3s e120ah ap £1647.00

    bmw i3 e120ah ap £1147 =lodge. = bmw i3s e120ah ap £1897.00.

    bmw i3 e120ah ap £1397 = suite. = bmw i3s e120ah ap £2147.00.

    bmwi3s e120ah ap £2397.00  no idea,????

    I’ve just watched a video of an i3 vs polo gti drag race and the polo won by a tenth of a second or something so these are i3’s are fast!

    The I3 used in that test was the 125kw version the ‘s’ is 135 kw and would win that drag race. The 0-62 time reduces from 7.3 to 6.9 seconds.

    This is an exciting addition to the scheme. It will be good to get actual user reviews in the near future as those of you that are due for a new lease vehicle, and are brave enough to take the plunge (lol) feed info back to us.

    Just had a brief look at the PDF and the picture with the child trying to get in makes it look really high up. Looks like I may have to Fosbury Flop into it.?

    On the plus side however it looks like I might be able to shuffle from the drivers side to the passenger side to get out on the path instead of trying to get in a wheelchair on the road. No centre tunnel.?

    theres a huge expanse of nothing accross the width of the car in front of the seats it is odd,you could almost get a chest of drawers from ikea under the dash. also on top the dash extends for a long way. its a bit like that odd fiat where you could sit 3 accross the front. the drive selector is like a 3rd indicator stalk on the steering column but stunted,and its an electronic hand brake so again very little between the seats. yes i reckon you could easily switch seats.

    A long time coming for a reasonable AP.

    Unfortunately the range or size wouldn’t suit my needs.

    But I’m sure it will help lots of others.

    hopefully wait times won’t be too long either.
