Road Tripping In A BMW i8 – Day Three
Sunday March 8th.
The heated seats and preconditioning were put to great use this morning as we left the El Tovar to see the sunrise over the Grand Canyon.
Temperature was 24 degrees. Walking to the car in below freezing weather and then getting in a prewarmed car is a special treat.
Awe inspiring morning, just wonderful cruising the south rim in the BMW i8 stopping at several spots for viewing. Breakfast at the El Tovar following the mornings outing.

It’s been a nice surprise, the ease of use of the back seat area.
We’re hitting the road again on a 5 hour drive east to the Acoma Pueblo. The i8 is doing great and is just a wonderful road-trip car. Plenty of space with gear for two.
“Standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona, such a fine site to see, it’s a girl oh my in a BMW i, slowing down to take a look at me” C’mon Baby, take it easy”
And so did Kodak… poor Kodak…Technology moves on for both cameras and cars.
The Painted Desert, something wonderful about the combination of nature and the BMW i8.
The i8 is tucked away for the night.
Tomorrow, we look for a car wash and then we visit the oldest city in America, the Acoma Pueblo. After that we begin the two day trek home.
During the two day drive, I’ll have lots of time to reflect on driving notes, likes and dislikes (the seatbelts are beautiful but watch out for seatbelt burns on the neck if you are a tall guy.) This and other BMW i related thoughts.
