Here's what I don't get about the BMW i8. The technology is actually pretty good, so why did they go for some crazy design? It's far too complex, it's like they were trying to show off but spectacularly missed! I think that's why I really like the 12C, wonderful and not horrendously complex. Same with the rather tasty new Aston. Elegant and simple are so tricky to pull off but amazing if you get it right.

Came downstairs this morning to an almighty scrabbling noise coming from our patio windows. Turns out that two squirrels were climbing across the top of the window to access our new Tardis bird feeder for their breakfast, and performing some significant acrobatics to do it!
