Ladies and gentlemen eco-conscious drivers, we are here to bring you a simple guide to the BMW i8. Since we’re supposed to keep things basic, we’ll list a few activities that you will definitely enjoy in an i8, as well as mention what is best left for other vehicles. The Full HD wallpaper illustrations are on the house.

For one thing, the BMW i8 is incredibly good at generating a state of serenity, so you can use it whenever you’re seeking this. You feel it as you drive the machine, with the petrol-electric powertrain and the premium soundproofing joining forces to serve this purpose. And if you want to remain calm, but send a bit of a menacing signal, all you have to do is open the doors like we did. We even managed to intimidate a Black 5-Series.

Still not convinced the BMW i8 works extremely well as an instrument for massaging the human psyche into a state of relaxation? Perhaps the photographic proof above will serve as the ultimate argument. We happened to drive the i8 through a rather massive protest throughout our review. Not only did we avoid any negative comments, but the people even settled down for a brief moment to analyze the car.

Sure, the i8 can also be fast. Turn to it when you want to cover ground quickly and not waste your advance by stopping at the petrol station too often. It’s not agitated though. This car is never agitated, not even when you take it to the track. Instead, the Grand Tourer character of the i8 means it’s best to drive this vehicle up to eight out of ten.

As for the cabin of the i8, what you shouldn’t do is regard this as a standard BMW. Because it’s not. Sure, you may recognise many of the elements from conventional Bavarian machines, but the melange offered here is the novelty. All in all, the i8’s interior manages to live up to the standards of the car. We didn’t like the carper on the rear center tunnel though. When you have an engine leather cover, you should use the same material for an area that comes so close to the occupants.

Here’s a top tip for you. Even if you’re a passenger in the i8, check your door mirror. No, not the central one - it will lead you to look through a Gorilla Glass rear window that distorts things a bit. Returning to the side mirror, this will give you the opportunity to notice those vortex styling elements placed atop of the i8’s hips. We wanted to make sure you don’t miss any of the i8’s details, so we’ve put together a 100-image BMW i8 gallery to go with our review. Do throw it a glance.
