Seriously I bet that car fails every safety test you can think of. It'll never get DOTTED.

Why would people want to do this??? With the money they spend, the can probably buy a Brand New REAL BMW. lol! Okay, maybe not, but at least a used one.

They are okay cars, but here in SoCal, a lot of people who buy them try to turn them into a cheap R34 from Fast and the Furious. The dashboard is lit up with blue LEDs and gives off a real "poser mobile" vibe. If you see a younger guy with a Tiburon, and he's next to you at a stop light, he'll try to take his 176HP and rev on you for sure.

It's a chinese replica made by this company in Shanghai called "Sceo". They've been trying to market this car internationally except it keeps exploding during safety test. "If" they can get the safety stadards higher, expect to see these hitting the streets for about $15,000 less than an actual X5. The Poser Mobile crew will be having a field day with this one.

M Badge on Ebay $10
Screwdriver to pry of the Taurus badge $6
Bottle of Glue $2

Managing to make a complete fool of yourself for less than $20 everywhere you go..... makes you a total tool

wait a minute, that's my car. you guys hurt my feelings i really thought it looked convincing

I think the Mercury Topaz is just trying to be funny. The other ones are actually posing.

At the mall the other day, I saw a BMW 330i. The guy had M3 wheels, and also bought an //M badge, but he put it on his rear like this:

//M330i

WTF? I would've taken a picture, but the owner was sitting inside the car.
