Super excited to learn more about the i4 now that efforts to prepare production are well under way!

It will be my first EV but not my first BMW. Started off with an E30 sedan years ago and was hooked ever since.

Hoping to place a deposit as soon as the i4 pre-order process opens.

The e39 was my introduction to my BMW, that car was a beast.
What's incredible these days is how fast these EVs are becoming. I wouldn't be surprised if the base i4 ends up being faster than an E39 M5 was back in the day. A Tesla Model 3 Performance does 0-60 in under 3 seconds. The new i4 M or whatever BMW ends up calling it will be a tremendous performance car by any measure.

@BimmerTim I have not owned any BMWs but I have come close to buying BMWs several times. In various years, I almost bought an E46 330ci ZHP, a BMW i3 for a commuter, an E46 M3 Competition, a Z3, an E30 convertible, and others. In every instance I ended up with something else but almost bought the BMW. In recent years I have been really interested in electric vehicles and I think there is a good chance the i4 finally becomes my first BMW!

A friend of mine had a E46 M3 CSL and oh man that car is a sensory overload. The sound is as perfect as you can get and it's so responsive around corners.
