Hi all

I've just arranged an initial test drive in Belfast. I'm really looking forward to it. I've read and watched everything available so this is the next step.

A little disappointed that when I asked about an extended test drive I was told that I might get to keep it overnight at some point in the future. The initial contact phone call from BMW mentioned 3 to 4 days which would really let you get to grips with what it's like to live with.

Perhaps I'll be able to talk them round after the initial test drive.

I'm going for the REx version, just for the peace of mind that you don't have to worry about range.

If I don't go for the i3 I'll probably go for another 3 series but that just doesn't excite me as much as the whole idea of the i3.

Anyway, I'll report back with my impressions afterwards.

I have to say I loved the car. I know it's light but it felt surprisingly solid. Definitely a BMW. The test drive itself was around 20 miles combining motorway and twisty hilly roads with a bit of heavy traffic thrown in.

On the motorway I was expecting it to be more jittery given the narrow tyres and lightness of the car but it wasn't like that at all. It took it in its stride and there was still plenty of get up and go.

It's a car that I feel will suit me very well. It does have a small boot space as the floor is quite high over the motors however I'll rarely have rear seat passengers so all that space is there for stuff.

I'm not even going to ask for an extended test drive although an overnight loan was offered. I'm that convinced by it.

I have to say that the willingness of the representatives at Bavarian, the local dealer, to spend time explaining and discuss any aspect of owning and living with the car was fantastic. They were really enthusiastic and very candid about what the car would not be suitable for. The person who took me for the test drive was such a good ambassador for the car and had every detail, fact and figure at her fingertips.

So eleven out of ten for the test drive I'll be placing the order in a couple of days
