Certainly not different enough to be exciting at all. Anyway, that is a very bad photoshop. It is obvious to me that it is a Z4, not a coupe/convertible since you can still see the Z4 ragtop tucked behind the seats....

Thanks for great review

My friend works for BMW and he told me that next Z4 will have similar front as CS concept and rear like Z9 concept.

That means:

front:
.


rear:



Was Z4 prototype you`ve seen similar to those two concepts?

Did they told you if new Z4 will be available in first or second half in 2009 in Germany ?

I don't think he got a date, but I doubt getting it in germany will be difficult, since all Zs will be produced there from now on.

Maybe the OP could go to a police station and get a sketch artist to work on this for us.

I guess once you do one, they put you on a list or something. I just received another request to do a research event. This one is on Sept. 8 to 9th and is being conducted in Manhattan Beach, CA. I'm going to call them back and get enrolled.

I'll let you guys know how things go with this one once I attend the event.

Ahh... a bit of bad news. I got a call from them and am now told that I'm on the waiting list and might be pushed out. They are full for the group. I don't really know exactly what that all means but it seems I'll get a call from them in the next few days to confirm. Oh well, I guess we can't get em all.

I say get on line quickly and check out the cameras embedded in your clothing that they sell to perverts.

Hey guys,

If you guys are in the Los Angeles area, I don't know if it'll work for other areas, you can give GfK Custom Research North America a call. They told me to refer them other people for some of their research stuff. You can reach them at 800-308-3575. I'm sure I just made some research person rich as I think they get paid based upon how many people they can get to participate. So maybe next time one of you guys can attend an event and take those undercover pictures.

Looks like BMW is really starting to embrase this new CS design.

Got another call. I'm back in. The event is supposedly for car interoirs??? It's Sept. 9th and the event is going to be in Santa Monica. I'll know the exact details when they send me the stuff in the mail. They're suppose to pay me $250 for two hours of time. I'll fill you all in when I get more info.

If you're in the LA area and you're interested in doing stuff like this call that number I put up. I think once you do one you're on their list of people to call for stuff like this.

Sorry I haven't followed up. I've been busy here at work.

Well, I went to this event and it was at a very nice hotel in Huntington Beach across the sand. They never told us which car we were seeing but I'm gonna put my money on the next Honda S2000. I know this is a Bimmer forum and we all own Z4's, but the Honda concept was awsome. If both the Honda concept and the Z4 concept were to compete it's gonna heat up the segment in spades. It wasn't a hardtop vert and it retained the ragtop, but the thing looked like something out of Anime (Robotech) movie. The thing seemed to be hoovering about the ground and doing Mach 4 just sitting there. The looks is definitely a 11 and the interior is now up to snuff with anything that is out and is to come on the market. They made us do a lot of pricing questions so I figure they're testing the ground to see what most ppl would be willing to pay for it.

I was there for 2 hrs and got paid $250 for it. I think once you go to one of these you get on a list or something cause I've already been called again for another event. I haven't committed to attend yet due to time contraints but I'll see what happenes. Gotta run for now, but shoot me some questions and I'll do my best to answere them.
