    • LA Auto Show 2012 - BMW i3 Coupe debut and i8 Spyder North American debut photos/pictures

      Here is what BMW brought to the Los Angeles Auto Show for 2012, their "i" brand taking center stage again. This year BMW did better as they did not put the "i" cars in a small boxed in room that made it difficult to take photographs. Admittedly, the i8 and i3 both looked great. The i8 really showing off its curves and looking sexier as a Spyder. The i3 itself (which was already leaked to the press earlier this week) looks better as a coupe and sportier.

      If BMW can deliver these "i" cars looking similar to their concepts they will likely have success. The key is keeping the costs down. BMW has already invested huge sums of money so they are committed to this experiment. If the i8 is relatively lightweight offering high MPG and good performance while keeping the price under the $150k mark this will be the new trendy car to be seen driving in SoCal.

        I would roll that i3 hard, so is it going to cost one or both of my kidneys?

        That's not really that bad if you are in the market for a car like that. Isn't the Volt around 40k?
