Perfect marriage between luxury styling and modern eco consciousness

I absolutely love the fact that the car is 95% recyclable, and that a portion of it is made in a hydroelectric plant and Washington State. I have encountered a charging glitch on the 120 volt charger that accompanies the car ' this is most commonly due to the age of the house I am currently living in and it's electrical outlets, but charging on 120 volt at a reduced level has significantly increased the charging time and has repeatedly left me with less than a 100% full charge come morning. This, coupled with a small network of public charging stations, is slightly stress-inducing. Lastly, it may not be an issue in all models (I am the second owner of this vehicle), but with rocketing temperatures nearing 100 degrees Fahrenheit before the official start of summer, I am noticing less-than-stellar AC quality in the vehicle on non comfort mode settings.

Awesome car when not going in for issues.

I have had issues with the check engine light coming on. I have only owned it 6 months, and I had to have it towed to BMW for a faulty charging switch that made it so I was unable to decouple the Charger from the vehicle. The check engine light is back on again and I have to take it back to BMW. Otherwise, this car is a dream. That being said, I do not want a maintenance nightmare on my hands.

Powered By the My Solar System Means My i3 is Powered by the Sun!

This is my favorite car ever. It is fun to drive and more spacious than it looks. I love not paying high gasoline bills and since I have solar I feel like it is powered by the sun. The bamboo detailing on the inside is beautiful. The sound system and technology options make commuting way more enjoyable.
