There's something about seeing the i3 is this quasi-live sort of way that heightens its appeal.

Lucky for us, the footage is of high quality and, aside for showing the inside of the i3, it captures almost every angle of BMW's first mass production electric vehicle.

We have to say though that the fake kidney grill looks to be a stick-on afterthought.  Or perhaps BMW was trying to hard to get those trademark kidneys in on a vehicle that doesn't require ventilation up front.
