    I was reading on i3 forums and many owners were talking to dealerships who either refused to participate in it or had never even heard of it. It makes sense dealers would refuse if they aren't getting any $ from BMW for renting out gas cars to i3 drivers for free.

    All the examples I provided are considered vaporware, all have a real world example or more, most took reservations, some had built production lines,
    TWO sold a few production examples to insiders before bankruptcy or lawsuit or "insert reason here"

    All Still considered vaporware, even though some examples were sold.

    So M3 is vaporware until it isn't

    Many RWD Tesla's have outperformed ICE FWD vehicles yet it's about the software; I wouldn't be surprised if most FWD EVs outperform a RWD Tesla...Consumer reports did many tests on ICE vehicles on snow/ice and concluded 2WD with snow tires outperformed AWD with all season tires...Maybe a good article for an auto mag would be how all EVs perform with OEM tires on snow/ice...

    There's a spreadsheet floating around the i3 forums, but it is a "living document", dealerships can change month to month along with their requirements...Some require you to have purchased at their dealership, some are first come first serve only while others are by appts only...But with the larger battery and larger gas tank seems like less hassle to just fill up every 90mins-2 hours...

    Dear GM, thanks for offering ACC on the Volt, now let's give it 7.2kW charging & a garage door opener...
