The Jan 03 issue of Automobile Magazine names Chris Bangle the Man of the Year title. The Z4 gets the Design of the Year title. Others: 350Z is Automobile of the Year; Delphi's MagneRide damper is Technology of the Year; Corvette C5-R is Racing Car of the year.

The artile on Man of the Year lauds Bangle on taking a bold stand and holding it even under much criticism. Similar comments about the Z4: "It might not be pretty, but the BMW Z4 is very bold."
