MISHAP ALERT. Re­turn­ing late on a blus­tery even­ing, I opened my gate and re­versed in… only to hear an aw­ful keer­rrunch as door mir­ror hit gate. It’s a ma­noeu­vre I’ve done daily for 10 years, but on this oc­ca­sion the wind had blown the gate half-shut. When we heard the quote for a new mir­ror (£600+), it be­came an in­surance job. Af­ter a cou­ple of hours at dealer Sy­camore, it’s busi­ness as usual. @TimPol­lardCars LOGBOOK BMW I3 WITH RANGE EXTENDER En­gine 125kW elec­tric mo­tor (equiv­a­lent to 168bhp, 184lb ft), with 647cc 2-cyl petrol range­ex­ten­der Trans­mis­sion Sin­gle-speed au­to­matic, rear-wheel drive Stats 8.1sec 0 62mph, 93mph, 13g/km CO2 Price £31,560 As tested £37,009 (prices quoted af­ter govern­ment Plug-in Grant) Miles this month 1028 To­tal 7023 Our mpg 324.3mpg O‚icial mpg 471mpg Fuel this month £14.60 Ex­tra costs None
