    First, we started with small aesthetics on the interior. We installed Custom Made Italian Leather Floor Mats.

    Moving to the trunk of the 500e, we removed the Factory Nylon Trunk Handle Pull Strap & installed this Italian Leather Strap by BLACK.

    We have already made a few changes such as the custom powder coated 17" Orange Magneti Marelli Wheels on Yokohama S-Drive tires.

    These wheels come from Magneti Marelli in two finishes, Satin Black Finish or Two-Tone Black Diamond finish.

    Should you ever feel the need, we offer complete powder coating to all our customers as well.

    What was the impact to range, or miles/kWh with going to a 17" wheel? I've been thinking to upgrade to 16" not sure I want to go to 17" because I use most of my existing range on my commute... but I'm also not a fan of the stock 'e' wheels...

    whatever you do... if you want range... get thin (as in not wide) "low rolling resistance" tires. trust me. I drove this:

    As much as we would love to give you an exact answer, we cannot. There are many factors that would effect your range, or miles/kWh i.e., The road conditions, your average speed, your acceleration and deceleration techniques, etc. We drive this car locally, 5 to 10 miles at a time.

    We have not noticed a significant difference, but there is some. We did notice improved handling, stopping, and acceleration in comparison to the factory tires and wheels. Bear in mind, the factory wheels were manufactured & chosen for economy reasons and to maximize range.

    With factory tires and wheels we noticed more squealing under heavy acceleration, longer traveling distance when braking, the handling was not as optimal, so when we upgrade all those factors improved - but there is a trade-off. We wish we could give you a more exact answer, but we can't - there's just too many variables.

    We will be testing several suspension options that allow us to lower the ride of the car, improve the handling while still retaining a relatively comfortable ride.

    We now have it dialed in and have put a new set of custom springs for the 500e in to production. They will offer a nice drop yet retain a decent ride and improve the handling.

    This weekend, we installed the DNA Racing Component's Top Mounts:

    Those of you that are 500e owners, may have already noticed that none of the Cargo Area Covers available fit your 500e properly. That is because the rear trunk/boot area of the 500e is shaped differently than the regular 500 models.

    We at MADNESS decided to design and manufacture a Cargo Area Cover specifically for the 500e. We have had it available for several months now and it has proven to be a very popular item.

    Now that we've got a 500e of our own, it was only natural that we installed one into it. Below you can see a couple of photos of the 500 MADNESS Cargo Area Cover and a link for more information.

    Trunkout,
    I am not worried about increasing range, just not negatively impacting range too much. There are some nice wheels for sale locally on craigslist, but they are 8" wide, and I know I don't want to go that wide (or as wide as the rubber needed for an 8" rim), so I already know I'm not buying those.
    Thin, low rolling resistance - your comment made me think about the i3 I saw on the road the other day and I immediately thought about them being rubber-wrapped wagon wheels (155/60/20)
    Madness,
    I wasn't expecting any exact impact on range, I know you are also making other changes that might also impact range, but I was hoping for at least some idea. Probably not going to get even an inkling from 5-10 mile drives. Oh well, no harm in asking, right?
