Had my first real experience of some proper crosswinds vs the i3 yesterday... not much fun!!

50-60mph gusts and heavy rain whilst trying to maintain 120-130km/h along the E40 to get to the Eurotunnel on time, and at times having to literally wrestle with the wheel!

It’s bordering on ridiculous how much it gets blown about. (Hardly any other cars had any noticeable issues).

On the plus side, the narrow tyres cope well with heavy rain / patches of standing water, and the camera only ACC did much better than might be expected given the amount of spray.

Looking forward to hearing how your European travel went in an ONTO vehicle.

Yes it's quite susceptible. Tall, flat sides, light weight, and very sensitive steering all combine forces against you there.
