While I admire this guy’s dedication and workmanship, I still think that the world would be a better place if this car had just been crushed. Also, his “donor part” eerily looks like some half or quarter cut from a stolen vehicle that got stripped. Pretty sure BMW doesn’t sell them like this.
Saw a news item a couple weeks ago that BMWs, Audis etc. that got crashed and written off in the US sometimes make their way to these Lithuanian body shops and then end up on the German used car market. They had some guy with an A4 he had bought a few weeks prior which was such a repaired US write off. Scary shit.
