After 12 years and Four models of BMWs 2003-745i, 2006-650i, 2010-650i and 2012- 650ix, the road has come to at least a temporary end for BMW. I had wanted to go with the i8 or possibly the i3. The limitation of these models to become an every day driver with performance was just not there. The threads in i8 and i3 forums clearly explain my decision to go from a fantastic 650ix to leave the fold to go with a P85D Tesla. The range on the Tesla is 255 miles (all electric) 691 HP and 680 ft/lb of torque. No sacrifice in left and right turns. A great choice. The BMW has a V8 rated at 400 hp 400 ft/lb of torque with dual turbos.
