Bagged BMW i8 on 20-inch Wheels Is Controversial

The BMW i8 is a rare bird no matter how you look at it. When the Germans decided to make it, they went that extra mile to be sure that they bring out a car that will set them apart from the competition in a number of ways.

Therefore, when it comes to tuning it, the opinions will always be contradictory, since this is already a cult car. I mean, you wouldn’t tune a BMW M1 all that easily, now would you? That’s what I thought and yet, some of my BMW-loving friends have no problem with seeing a tuned i8.

The car in the photo gallery below was put together by the guys from Alphamale Performance and we’re not here to nitpick or say that they should’ve have done it. After all, it was the owner that asked them to trick his car. However, we would like to have your say in this.

To add insult to injury, apart from changing the standard wheels, that were designed to be as light and efficient as possible, the i8 was also bagged. That means that the standard setup was swapped with an air suspension, one that allows you to raise or lower the car’s ride height at the switch of a button, in this case bringing it closer to the ground.

One thing we have to admit though: those wheels are pretty good looking. They’re called AMP-15T and are forged and monoblocks, finished in a beautiful Death Bronze cue, they do stand out. So, how about it? What do you think, yay or nay for this bagged i8?
