Talking about their first drive in i8 - they love it, and compare to that legend from 15 years ago:

We recently spent some time on track with the new BMW M235i. Motor Trend’s captive racer Randy Pobst commented, “This is the best BMW I’ve driven in ten years.” That’s one hell of a statement. I mention this because after spending a day inside the new i8 it could be the best BMW I’ve ever driven. If not, then it’s the best since the E39 M5. Sticking with the superlatives, I feel the Roundel brand’s new $136,625 3-cylinder, carbon-fiber, plug-in hybrid sports car is the most important BMW of all time.. How’s that for overselling it?

I've had the chance to sit in one today (no driving :( )
I do love this car, the way it looks and feels it's great
Spoken to the tech who was driving it around and he said it's not quick quick, but great car
My only issue is it's a bit out of my budget :D
