When small car companies need to keep their costs down, they generally turn to larger OEM manufacturers for a pair of rear lights or the side mirrors. This means that the headlights of an econobox might pop up on a supercar or the side mirrors of a brown, 5-cyliner diesel, AWD family wagon might be the same as the one of a luxury grand tourer. I've tried to keep out some of the parts binning (otherwise we'll be stuck in the VAG loophole), but he's some stuff that I've found.
