I enjoy the power of my M50i, but I have to say, it's nice sneaking out in the AM in the 45e without waking up all the neighbors on cold start, or sitting in a parking lot in electric mode waiting for my wife.

The 45e is definitely more luxurious, quieter at idle and on highway, smoother ride with air suspension. The M50i is sportier and livelier, they are both fantastic in their own way. I bought my M50i first, so if I had to do it over, I'd seriously consider the 45e myself and put the savings towards a 911 or M4 as a toy. My m50i was $24k more and I'm paying $250-300/mo in gas on top of that, the difference is hard to justify.

Wow. You must drive a lot to put $250+ gas. Definitely enjoy.

Hopefully you won't be pulled over for the windows tint..
I am also thinking to tint rear lights, does it reduce brightness so much?
Wheels looks sick! Do you have any spacers ? It looks a bit wider than it should be.

Thanks. I've done it on my last few cars and never gotten pulled over for it, but TX is more lenient. They don't pull you over for no front license plate or tint on front windshield here either. Brightness on lights is fine, the factory LED's are are very visible. No spacers on wheel, just more aggressive offset and quite a bit wider than stock. Did 10.5" wide front and 12" wide rear on 23's. I had spacers on my 22" stock wheels but removed them when these custom 23's came in.

I did, lamin-x. I typically swap out the bulbs to a color that matched the headlights but decided to go yellow for some contrast.
