The 2017 BMW i3 is improved. The battery range goes from 81 miles to 114 miles. If I have to go to the South Bay to work, the round trip is 111.4 miles. I would get the range extender, a 2-cylinder motorcycle engine.
For now, I'm driving the Civic. The road noise is getting unbearable. I'm thinking of replacing the discount tires with something more substantial. I went on Tire Rack and these are the "premium" choices. It looks like the Michelin Defender is the way to go. My priorities are, in this order: noise, comfort, performance, tread life. I will never drive in snow or ice. Have you had any experience with these tires?
