    So my other thread about a mule being spotted in the States got way off topic. So lets have a dedicated thread on the matter. Below are two possible and realistic examples of how I think it can turn out. Which one do you guys or gals prefer?

    Please also vote in the poll. Toyota does monitor social media so we would also be providing them with feedback and input.

    PS: I was only only referring to the vents by the door/quarter panel, but sure lets talk about the ones on the fenders as well.

    what is the disaster you're referring to, the little vent on the front fender on that Z4? probably just confusion considering I'm not sure why the OP used the Z4 photo

    the true comparison is this

    The Z4 and the white rendering look somewhat similar. I was just trying to find a comparison with the same angle.

    My vision is fine just thank you ;)

    At the end of the doors they both curve to meet the quarter panel. Sure there are still differences between the two, but thats why I said similar.

    you still managed to confuse andimaniac & I think Sun Devil was also referring to the Z4's vent too

    I like the idea of an air intake by the door; it gives a nod to the MK4. Without it than it just looks bland and boring like the Z4 :sleep: :sleep: :sleep:

    My apologies, that was not my intend. I just assumed everyone understood what I meant because that was all people talked about in the stateside thread.
