Love it!

I've only seen Dravit inside and was amazed how much it looked Matt like a Nardo.

Loads of metallic flakes in it though. Congratulations.

Damn nice taste boss!! It's like seeing my own one lol, we've got the same color combo except for I've been too lazy to put on the M-performance parts yet.

Did you do it yourself or have someone else do it?

Also I Looooove your wheels, probably the best imo, but they were so insanely expensive in Sweden, 49.000SEK!!! I hope you didn't pay that much, I actually found them on ebay.de in black for around 2-2500euro original and new..

I considered one. Quick notes

There are some companies that will flash up the engine for more power, somewhere around 300 plus the 80 from the motor.

The Motor is instead of a slush box on the transmission, so there have been some strange shifting issues.

The F30 330e has the battery in the trunk which was ok but it raised the center of gravity considerably

The G20 was designed with batteries in mind and so should be much batter handling wise

The original active hybrid had a 35i engine and a short 2 mile range. Sort of a performance minded set up. Reviewed hated it for not having range.

Batteries can either dump energy fast and powerfully or slow and over time. You cannot have performance battery AND range because physics.

Conclusion: i have no doubt the 330e is a fun car for a hybrid. But it is heavy and ultimately designed for low emissions commuting. A proper 'M sport' car will have a much shorter range and much more electric power. Hoping for the i8 2.0 to be like this.

In the meantime, I approve of the 530e and 330e for what it is. A fun hybrid but not a serious sports focused car.

A stop gap until BMW brings out the fully electric 3er, which is long overdue.

Garage List
That color complements the G20 very well and I've grown to really love the styling of the new M Sport package. Beautiful car.

In searching for a replacement for my daily commuter, my 2018 or i3 REx, the 530e and the 330e were considerations within the BMW lineup. With an M3 CS already in my garage as a weekend car, I deemed the 530e too expensive for just a commuter. The 330e was more within reason. But to me it still has a few compromises.

1) electric only range is too small for me. My commute is 80 miles round trip and my goal was to not use any fuel. 37 miles is an improvement over the F30, but still not enough. 100 mi would be nice.

2) it's heavy - the i3, while not as powerful, it much much lighter and in traffic, the instant torque and nimble handling is much preferred over even my M3 CS. The f30 330e was sluggish and didn't drive all that well. The G20 is probably slightly better, but still a compromise since it has 400 extra lbs to haul around.

3) HOV accessibility is in question. The 530e was HOV accessible, but BMW didn't submit the F30 330e for the exemption. Perhaps with more electric range over the previous generation, now the G20 can.

4) it's missing that EV quirkiness . Perhaps I am the minority in that I want my EV to feel like an EV. I don't want to be sitting in slightly different version of my F80. Despite the G20 having a very different interior than the F30/F80 I still feel like it's a bmw sedan. I like the weird and creative i3 interior, which, despite being almost 5 years old feels fresh and modern.

5) cost. The 330e does not qualify, as far as I know, for the same amount of rebates as the i3. The residuals on the i3 are also a few % higher which means the leases on them are much more attractive. Couple that with the fuel savings and I could not justify the 330e.

Granted, my requirements might be very different for other drivers. This is still a very good all around car. However, for someone like me who wants more focused cars for specific purposes, an all electric 330e with good range would be preferred.
