I currently have a bmw 2 series convertible but am finding it painful to drive because of the low set seat and tight footwell, especially on longer journeys. Causes pain in my legs, ankles and back.
After a conversation with Motabilty they kindly agreed to an early termination if the current car isn’t suitable which will be my first early ‘hand back’ since I started in 1982!
Anyway I went today to BMW to look at MPVs and got very sidetracked by, and interested in their i3s which was charging outside.
Amazing cabin space for a very compact car, with a much better access/exit and higher seating position / more legroom so clearly better suited for my requirements. I think the pillarless design helps entry and exit as well.
Anyway after a passenger ride I’m hooked!
Very impressed that you can heat the cabin (cold weather) or cool it (hot weather) remotely via the smartphone app and even set it to heat or cool at a certain time of your choosing, such as 10 minutes before a journey for example.
I have a 24 hr test drive booked for next weekend to give their demo (non ‘S’) a good workout, so will be able to report back some more next week.
Not sure whether the ‘S’ is worth an extra £1000 though, and would be interested in others thoughts on that , as well as anyone else who has one, has tested one, or is considering one.
