I have one for this coming weekend (although a REx), courtesy of Chandlers BMW in Hove. I also have the J1772 problem - thankfully I'll have sole use of a 32A GE Durastation nearby.Certainly would Kevin; I have the BMW i3 Wednesday to Friday morning.
Sounds like he better wait for a 3 series 40Kwh BEV BMW i340There was a guy on the i3 forum who was there from the beginning, doing a lot of research about the car before it was officially launched last July, posting loads of info on the forum such as spy pics and tech specs etc. He even flew out to motor shows abroad to look at the car before it came to the UK.
Then, when the first i3's arrived in the UK he went to see one but his partner did not like the interior (in particular the kenaf fibre door panels) and she didn't think it was luxurious enough so after all that time and effort he ended up having to drop the idea of buying one.
Just telling you so that you can prepare the answers in advance ;-)
I got that on the 20 min test drive I did last week. It does indeed have a periodic quality to the sound. It reminded me of the time I scored the front discs on my Escort 16v. Not that jarring, but noticeable.The biggest issue so far the road noise from the front; I assume its the big wheels and thin tires; it's akin to a badly worn wheel bearing....
