    When I started to look, prices werent insane hovering around the mid teens. My hope was to sell the wagon and use that to pay cash for the i3, but that didnt work out. I ended up setling the Wagon for less than $12k, and the i3 I bought was around 17k. I paid a little more because I figured I wouldnt be able to pay for it completely in cash and I also hated that 90% of the cars are white/gray/black and I wanted to avoid those colors. Carmax/Carvana/ shift/ etc have all cornered the market so I couldnt get a private party purchase. When this one popped up on CarMax I 'scheduled' my appt to prevent anyone else from being able to see it/ buy it before me. Once I saw the color in person I was sold. I already have driven one and liked em.

    Overall, Im happy with the car, not totally happy with the way the financials all worked out but all said, Its a great DD that I expect to keep around longer than the typical 12 months.

    Place your bets! November is 1 year! haha

    Yeah, that's what I thought. I was shocked to see them nearing 30k.

    I was curious too, only thing less than 20k I'm seeing has a salvage title. Weren't these i3's all less than 20k like a year ago? Sigh.

    I've been thinking I don't REALLY need 3 cars, so while I didn't expect the Si to remain forever, it may leave my hands soon.

    E30 goes back to main focus and getting to where I want it, LX remains as the truck, and soonish my wife's 9th gen Civic gets sold for a hybrid crossover or something.

    Leaning more toward a Plugin hybrid as an Outback replacement in a year + from now. Something like a Volvo V60 Recharge?
    Rebates here make up for the difference in cost over the gas only equivalent, so the extra ~150ftlb of torque and 60km electric range for the city is basically free.
    With the ICE, it can still do the 600Km drive to the wife's parents' place in the boonies in one shot.
    I've never had a "New" car payment, always just 10-15k shitboxes, so that's currently a hard stop until everything else is paid for.

    Not going to lie, I searched up used i3s this past weekend after someone posted theirs in the Anti-BMW BMW Club Facebook group.
    Probably going to just limp both of my shitboxes along for at least another year, but who knows.

    Yea who knew that matching the hood to the rest of the car was a 'mod' haha Once you see it, you will notice how bad every single other i3 out there looks lol

    I wonder how much better a white one would look color matched. Which one of you is next to join my "i3's are the new E30s" nonsense

    I really didn't know what changed on your IG post so had to scroll for a comparison. I like it!

    The hood does look better in body color, but the mirror caps aren't quite right and might look better in black.

    I had an idea when I first bought the car and after my “///M mirror covers” the excuse to move forward with the plan happened.

    Without further adieu, a less-funky looking i3. Dare I say, a more aggressive looking i3? Lol
