2014 BMW i8: John Wallis

This BMW i8 has been owned since new by John Wallis, who saw an advert for the car a day before its release and put in an order the next day. John took delivery of the car in November 2014 and has loved it since "I live the dream everyday I drive the car and smile".

John's favourite thing about the car is its split personality, at one moment silent and refined, the next a cacophony of speed, power and acceleration.

It's this performance, combined with the agile handling afforded by the i8's lightweight bodyshell, that makes The Lake District John's favourite destination in the car.

John plans to take the car on more continental trips (having already taken it to Germany once) as well as around the UK. But has he found anything he wants to change in all his time and miles with the car?

"None, I think it’s perfect from the factory."
