Default BMW I8"s come out to play :

So I was coming back from the first sat of the month Mini breakfast in Malibu and I see a I8 coming my way . Pretty cool. Then a min later a second and I figured something was up. I pulled over at the lookout at the top of the snake to see what was going on and within a few min, one , two and then a third I8 pulled over and a few support BMW's with photographers .

Apparently there were 20 I8's let loose this weekend and the majority were in the Santa Monica mountains this weekend. The guys were really cool and let everyone get up close and personal. One of the BMW reps had a mini and I ended up giving him and several of the journos a rundown on the car and the BMW rep a lap on the snake. The pay back for the ride was a shot on the same course in one of the I8's. Great car , very responsive but too damn quiet It has a good bit of push in the corners and he said that was due to the front tires being selected for economic efficiency rather than ultimate grip.

Great guys , really nice car but they wouldn't go for pinks
