Needless to say the video is excellently made and i especially like the soundtrack, one of my favourite songs. Do you do film editing/producing for a living? This definitely looks professional. If there is a tiny teeny little thing i'd like to add to that video would be more engine note.
I'm just an amateur with expensive gear and experience in photography and web development :) .

The video was shot with a two man crew (me and fellow Z4 driver Tom) in one evening and a day. Most of the shots were made from a suction mount on the Alpina B10 with Tom driving the Roadster S while I was operating the video camera through the steering wheel :D . Because of the wind noise and limited available time it was difficult to record a good sound track.

Perhaps your work connection cannot handle the awesomeness that is a supercharged Alpina Roadster S.

I can see the site properly now I'm home!

That was a great project! Very nice looking Z4! It was the first time I had seen the carbon rear diffuser and decided to get one for my old Coupe!

Big respect for your video also!! 8) :thumbsup:

Totally agree with the other comments above, i remember been impressed with this when i saw it when it was posted sometime ago, still impressed now - its an awesome looking Z4. i think the colour helps it looks quite muscular as well.

just spotted a detail that i didnt notice before, gloss roll over hoops! nice. :thumbsup:
