Rather than trying to please everyone, I'd really think hard and pare the list down to increase your chances of getting some responses. Good luck, we all really appreciate your great effort here.
I would not be surprised if Larry Koch already knows about this thread.

I definitely agree that some questions are weak. Sorry but paint colors and reflectors -- are you kidding me? Also, I think it very, very unlikely Koch will provide information about future product plans or model changes. Its really not even worth asking those kinds of questions, particularly if you only have an opportunity to ask one or two things.

I suggest you prioritize your list of questions. That way, if you only have an opportunity to ask one or two questions, at least you wil have your most important ones covered.

Solid post and very good advice.

Yeah, sorry, but about the colors, I have heard countless posts on M3forum.com saying "I hate how BMW isn't offering enough colors...I'm probably going to get another car". Yes this is a paraphrase to the max! but you seem to underestimate color choice.

Ha, most of my questions about the M3 have been answered here. But I'd like to know the future of the Z cars.

Can he speculate on any plans for a new Z* ///M roadster/coupe? V8? And also when will they stop making the Z4 line. I heard August this year will be the end so no 2009 models; is this true?

One more if I may:

Are any of the rumblings true that BMW is now considering building a proper mid engine sports car like the M1 to compete with the likes of Porsche, Audi, Ferrari, Lambo, and Lotus? Like Edmunds inferred, imagine master motor and suspension builder BMW offering the buying public this little treat at a reasonable BMW price. The competition may no longer be very competitive.
