Had a short run vs a bmw i8. Was closer than I thought it'd be just because I figured that car had at least 500 horse. I still got destroyed though. Roll racing with a stock awd Stinger gt is probably not the best way to use it's power. Those Bmws only have 369hp but are electric. Very nice looking car and it's something different.

but the i8 driver could have been 4 bills??? :sneaky:
I dont think thats possible. Have you seen people get in and out? Big and tall buys arent fitting in an i8 without a shoe horn

yeah but if you got two guyz/galz who are each 200+ then that is heavier than a single 300-pounder big boi! :D

those are entertaining to watch for sure... no one can really get in or out of those exotics gracefully....
lmfao I sure as heck cant! :p

They're stunning cars and I love how they look! It's a dang shame they try (BMW knows what they're doing lmfao) to look like exotics but offer pretty subpar performance for the dollar value. I believe they are being discontinued if I read correctly?

Really harsh deprecation on those nice toys. I see some for the high $20k range at this point! :D

You gotta catch him after his battery is out of juice. Then he'll be running on the turbo I3 alone, and you'll have 150 more horsepower than him!

Where are you seeing them in the high 20k? A quick search shows the 2014s going for 60k+

I am SO sorry! lmfao! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

I am using my laptop on these forums but used my phone for a quick search. Like a clown I selected i3 instead of i8 and didn't view with images. I just saw the numbers for the prices. That is 100% my bad!

I am prepared to receive a hundred lashings! :p

haha! silly me! :alien:

but being completely serious... I believe they have discontinued the i8 a little while back... there are still some new ones I'm sure sitting around somewhere...

They're pretty expensive to maintain and not very reliable from what I remember gathering back in 2016/2017 on the forums. I'm sure they're a nightmare out of warranty. I think a lot of people get them just to look richer than they are. :p

Just my opinion though. :coffee::coffee:

Great looking cars but not for me. Would rather get an M2 or M4 if I'm spending that kind of cash.
