Angry BMW M6 owner destroys car at Frankfurt IAA in protest

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I must say, I have a friend in England, bought an M3, had several issues, dealership never solve them, five letters to BMW and no answer.

He put some stickers on his car in regards with BMW level of care and drove it like that all the time so people can see, until his lease ended.

He was one of the greatest BMW fans I ever knew. Now he is gone to another brand for good, we actually never speak about BMW anymore. Sad.

Here is another case, this time similar with the Chinese businessman who smashed publicly his Lamborghini.
Some people may say is stupid. But if you have the money, this is a good way to make your point.

And in front of the IAA Frankfurt Autoshow. What a slap in the face BMW!

Lord knows there's few frustrations quite as powerful as a car that doesn't work as advertised. Even in our quality-promoting epoch, there's still a hefty business for lemon law attorneys around the United States; in other countries where consumer laws have not advanced so far, those frustrations can fester. At least that's the story told by a man who hauled his 2008 BMW M6 coupe to the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany last week and started taking batting practice with a sledgehammer.

Italian marble dealer Hadi Pourmohseni staged the demonstration while claiming BMW and his Italian dealer had been unable to fix numerous defects after four years of rigmarole and finger-pointing with the 507-hp car that cost 120,000 euros — $160,000 — new. Hadi said along with a letter to BMW, he brought the car to Frankfurt during the largest European auto show of the year so that he and co-batter Thomas Brunner could publicly unleash some pent-up frustration, noting that a lawsuit over the car would have taken up to seven years. (That's Pourmohseni in the suit and axe below.)

Angry customer demolish his BMW

bad day for that m6 demolished by his owner!
Must be really pissed

Quote:
The BMW M6 was a nightmare for the owner: The owner criticized vibration, rattling and severe jolts during gear changes, the riders prepared nausea. There was an odyssey through Italian BMW workshops - unsuccessfully. "BMW Italia and the Munich headquarters have pushed the responsibility back and forth," says the stone dealer. "I have BMW written a letter - no response. Now I answer! With this action! And I will repeat, with repaired car in Berlin, in front of the Bundestag, "says the owner.

I guess it was time for him to replace the SMG and they told him the price.




Seriously though, can anyone translate?

Nice to be rich enough to do that--how many of us wanted to do that to our 335's back in the day?

WTH I was thinking the same thing! "I'm walkin' heah!"

here he is with Angelina Jolie's dad. Scene was totally improvised, the cab was not supposed to be there. NYC at its best.

that article and comments made me think and i hate to admit this but out of the three bmw's i've owned, i've never had one that was trouble free.

my current one was the best and strongest yet until last week. now i'm scared because they're replacing all the injectors.

i don't have faith that they'll do a perfect job and i feel like it will be downhill from here. i really hope i'm wrong.

please be wrong... please be wrong.. please be wrong haha

i've loved bmw my entire life, dream car and all that. i hope i'm not just buying them over and over again because love is blind.

Now yes that will be a pretty penny to fix but let's not call it demolished. No more than $15k and it's back to new cosmetically, maybe not even that much.
