Odd colored i8...

Post by GRNSHRK » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:37 pm

So I'm out with the missus a couple of weekends ago in the cabrio (man, what a fun little car \:D/ ) and when we come back to where the car was parked, next to us is an i8 :shock:

Well, nice, but, check out this color #-o

This brings up a few questions, namely, WTF is BMW thinking, painting cars fly shit yellow [-X

And, who would plunk down 6 figures for this example :roll:

We waited for the guy who let his kid play in the gravel to move, alas we got tired of waiting, snapped the pic, and took off ](*,)

So, what do you guys think, am I off base :-"

I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but still, yuk :-({|=

When they came out with that color a few years ago on the M3/M4, I called it "Bile Duct Yellow". It is hideous. They even use it in one of their national commercials. My wife said "that's not really a color option, is it? Are they blind?" All I can say is that color-blindness must be more rampant than we thought. :roll:

Rancid popcorn I say. Some of the new Fiats and others are painted as you'd paint a house a boring flat house paint color YUK ](*,) Or in the case in this i8 "Bold Urine"

Agree Bob, Not a fan of the color or the car. I think BMW made a big mistake making such a crazy supercar and then making it electric. I bet you'd see more of them on the road if they had a big V8 or something in them. My opinion.

BTW, nice e46. It must be a great car with the top down in sunny CA

Thanks Dave, the E46 is a real treat, going topless here in sunny CA 8)

Well then, it's unanimous, that thing is hideous :-&

I also agree that making a hybrid out of a supercar was an interesting move by BMW, not totally surprising, however :-k

And if you haven't seen the i8 Roadster yet, check out my post from Legends of the Autobahn this year =D>
