Did you know that one of the two least customizable models in BMW’s range also happens to be the firm’s halo car, the i8, the other one being the i3?
You cannot opt for Individual paints, or for any M Sport and M Performance parts. Heck, BMW doesn’t even offer any vehicle accessories for the i8 on its site (it does for the i3), which is utterly strange for a brand that you can double up the price of its base models through their personalization and performance programs.
All the better for tuners like AC Schnitzer, which may not be ready (…or green-lighted) to touch the i8’s complex plug-in hybrid powertrain, but it has released a new cosmetic and suspension program for BMW’s coupe.
AC Schnitzer’s offerings include a suspension kit that lowers the front end by 25mm and the rear by 20mm, a carbon fiber kit with front apron, rear wing and rear side skits, and 21-inch forged alloys that it says, are 4kg or 9 lbs lighter than the stock wheels, though, when you counter in the wider tires size 245/35 front and 285/30 rear, they are identical in weight.
For the interior, the German tuner has designed an aluminum pedal set, aluminum root rest and velour floor mats.
