For the most part, the aftermarket industry has steered clear of the electric and even hybrid vehicles, with a few exceptions.
Unfortunately, the BMW i8 fall into these categories, and while we do enjoy how it looks, we could do with some aftermarket parts.
Considering the powertrain, I can understand why tuner didn’t try any performance upgrades, but I would have expected by now for at least a serious body kit to have been announced, maybe even produced. Of course, some attempts have been made to upgrade the looks of the BMW i8, but these mostly include just a new pair of wheels.
This is exactly that kind of build, and we appreciate the effort, but we can’t help but feel a bit disappointed that no one wants to take the chance. Exotic Euro Cars did choose a very nice set of wheels, namely from Forgiato, and they work quite nicely on the BMW i8. Other than that, nothing else was done to the hybrid, and so the wait starts again, until a nice tuning project will eventually emerge.
