Its been almost one year since BMW unveiled the BMW Z4 concept car at Pebble Beach. The concept car featured a striking design language with futuristic curves and creases that made even a BMW i8 look a bit dated. And we’re happy to report that the actual production version looks strikingly similar to that of the concept car. Now, of course, it doesn’t have all the outlandish styling details of the concept car, but BMW has done a pretty good job at keeping it pretty close. At the front, the large twin kidney grilles take center stage with the same weird mesh pattern as we saw on the concept. They are slightly wider and mounted lower than the concept car. The headlights are also pretty similar with the same sharp and aggressive design language. Overall we’d say the front looks pretty good, but just slightly too similar to the Fiat’s two-door roadster namely the 124.
Next weekend, BMW will have its very own motor show at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Sadly the car has fallen behind more innovative rivals in recent years and its popularity has suffered in the face of relentless opposition from more fashionable SUV alternatives. It was recently revealed that Opel has stopped building one of the Verso’s main competitors, the Zafira Tourer, because of poor sales in Europe.

These PWCs are spread out across the island and cover different areas. Sembwaste – part of listed conglomerate Sembcorp – has the lion’s share, taking charge of three out of seven districts delineated by NEA (Woodlands-Yishun, City-Punggol and Bedok). Catalist-listed 800 Super makes its way around the two districts of Ang Mo Kio-Toa Payoh and Pasir Ris-Tampines with its white trucks, and French multinational Veolia and Catalist player Colex Holdings split the remaining Clementi-Bukit Timah and Jurong districts respectively.
