Bodywork, Comfort, and Dimensions

There are 11 different paint colors available. The rear fascia is attractive, and it has BMW’s traditional “Kidney” shaped front grille. The car has a blend of muscular shapes and striking sharp lines. It also features a “double bubble” roof that can transform the roadster into a convertible.
The interior of the car offers ample room for two ensuring comfort, convenience, and entertainment. The interior of the car blends black color with orange accents. Orange accent is visible on the door trims, the dashboard, and the center of the seats. A bright metal weave strip moves on the dash to enlighten it.

The ConnectedDrive Package features a real-world traffic navigation system, internet access, entertainment services, advanced collision notification, front and rear park distance control, and accident severity detection.
This system will also allow the driver to link their iPhone with it to receive internet radio stations that enable you to access Facebook and Twitter posts via the navigation screen or can read aloud though the latter idea is not impressive but is good when you are alone in the car.
