Even though it indicates these were April Fools day adverts
the Z3 marque and the wiper idea looked pretty classy

You can inflate and deflate the tires in a Hummer from inside the cabin depending on road/terrain conditions.

Couldnt help thinking of what the Frenchies did way back in the 1920s. I believe they's put a very innovative tyre-pressure transfer system in one of the French cars (De Dions?) way back in the 20s to help with the cars stability while cornering...... I dont have the details but it seems the pressure would transfer from the wheels on one side to the other while taking a corner....
