M6 owner deliberately destroys his car to protest against BMW [video]


Serviced for ten times without success

The owner of a 2008 BMW M6 chose to protest against BMW service by… destroying his own car.
Let's take a trip down to memory lane and remember the year 2011 when the Chinese owner of a Lamborghini Gallardo decided to destroy his car on World Consumer Rights Day after an engine failure on his Italian supercar which the Lamborghini service failed to fix. Earlier this year, it happened again when a Maserati Quattroporte was intentionally wrecked in China after the owner found out the service crew installed used parts.
Déjà vu as the owner of a 2008 BMW M6 did the exact same thing with his high-performance coupe which he bought as new for 120,000 EUR. The car was serviced at BMW Munich and BMW Italy for a total of ten times but without success, even though BMW's repairmen said the car was fixed.
As a form of protest, the owner decided to deliberately destroy his car, proving he’s not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. He did it outside 2013 IAA in Frankfurt last Saturday to make sure a lot of people would notice his grievance.

Talk about someone not happy about getting things right I guess he never thought of trading it in to get another car.

A man has smashed up his BMW M6 sports car with an axe and a sledgehammer in protest over quality problems.



Iranian-born Pourmohseni Hadi and his friend Thomas Brunner took to the panels and glass of the exotic German car - worth about €120,000 ($170,000) - at the entrance to the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.


Hadi said the level of service offered by BMW in Italy, and from its German headquarters, was not adequate in light of complaints he had made over excessive vibration, rattling and hard gear changes in his previous-generation M6 coupe.
"I have written BMW a letter - no response. Now I answer! With this action!” Hadi said. "BMW Italia and the Munich headquarters have pushed the responsibility back and forth."


The strangest thing about the incident is that Hadi said he plans to repair the car and repeat the stunt again in Berlin in front of the Bundestag - Germany’s federal parliament.
"Now I feel better," Hadi said.

Good thing he brought his friend along as muscle as the owner was hardly making dents before he was out of breath.

The guy using the back of an axe is an idiot and is about to get a nasty surprise. Either the axe will bounce back and split his face open or the head will come clean off from the shock and cut poor bastards throat. Not smart at all.

With the paint job and the thin, tin can bodywork the fit has, you could probably do the same damage by dropping your house keys on it LOL
