It's a beemer, its going to be on the good side whatever, I'm not sure about the move away from kidney grills though, I know it's probably to reflect the lekky side of things but I guess I'm a bit of a tradionalist.

Overall it's good for me.

I’m liking that, the 4 series is growing on me, but I feel they could have done something that but more special / slightly different with the i4.

Oh, and I’m betting it carries a hefty price tag…

But apart from that it looks like a good motor.
Have you seen the new Audi e-tron GT has dropped the huge grill?

Looks a 100 times better than the both Audis & BMWs huge grills.

Meh.
Though the interior being reasonably restrained nets it a couple of points.

When I clicked on the thread I was expecting a right pig's ear. Full of LEDs and other pointless tat to attract imbeciles.
Though I still don't like all this touch screen bull. I'd rather have buttons and dials.

Like the look of it, an electric car that looks like.....a car instead of trying to make it look all futuristic.

Thumbs up from me.

Read an article in CAR mag on this, this morning, and it is supposed to be great to drive although a little of the BMW'ness is lost due to weight etc.

I like this but would probs opt for the I4 e-drive 40. Saying that I do like the M styling...hmm.

Electric seems to be coming along quickly but the charging infrastructure doesn’t, all manufacturers seem to be going there own way and it’s all very well being able to add 100 miles in 10 minutes but where can you actually charge it on the move, my town centre Stamford has just 2 charging points
