That looks like a BMW 850. They were built in different variations from '90-'99. The OPs photo appears to be a Toyota or other Japanese brand with a BMW badge. The OPs is definitely not a BMW.

Who gives a shit though if someone wants to stick roundels all over a Toyota or a Honda.

They are either

1. Making fun of BMW owners cause BMW owners tend to freak out and have little hissy fits over this sorta thing.

or

B. He/She simply has that kind of desire for a bullshit status symbol and a serious lack of a clue... Maybe a combination of Both.

Either Way, Who gives a shit?

NO NO, I agree that shit is funny especially on a car as recognizable as a Celica.

I keep missing the opportunity to photograph it, but there is a Ford minivan that drives around my area that has the front of an E36 3 series grafted onto it. Not just the badge, but the whole hood, fenders, and grills.

It only makes me mad if they stole it off a BMW instead of buying it. It's impossible to tell how they got it, but I bet a lot just grabbed it off a car.

Some people are content with living a life of mediocrity while others go out and get the real thing.

Some can't get the real thing. What is wrong with them having their fun and us having a good laugh?

This is the second dumbest thing I've read today...


WTF does driving a BMW have to do with NOT living a life of Mediocrity? Last time I checked life is about far more than whatever piece of steel a person chooses to roll around in.

It doesn't mean you're wealthy, clever, smart, or better than anyone else. It sure as HELL doesn't mean you are NOT still living a Mediocre life.

Nor does some bucket-head screwing around with Emblems mean they are living a life of mediocrity so much as either a life of Sarcastic Irony, or Simple Label Worship like Much of America...



Success isn't determined by the car you drive, besides even if it is Welcome to the Middle Class... BMWs are hardly the choice tools for the wealthy...

No worries, but just so we are all clear...

Z8 Was never offered with a 12, only the "8". I love the 8 series cars, but would never want a 2 cylinder version, I've heard horror stories about maintenance and service costs. The Older 8s and the 7s were my favorites. Bangle earned a place in my "Needs a Beating" file when he destroyed the 7 series... It was one of the classiest sedans on the road.

The Z8, never really did much for me, I like the styling cues it provided for the Z4s but really not much else about it appealed to me.

Agreed about the old Seven. To my eye it was perfectly proportioned. That may have been the problem. No room to improve so an entirely new direction was needed. I can't think of a Bangle design that I really love but they did revitalize the perception of BMW stying and that might have been all that was needed. Like the old Hollywood line "I don't care what they write about me as long as they spell my name right".
Sorry about the 8 vs 12 mistake. I'm awaiting my ED to hit port and am somewhat distracted.
