Does someone actually make a kit for these? Are we going to see them around like the Pontiac Fiero "Testarossa" model?

The ONLY thing that makes this funny and not "kick in the balls worthy" is that he did this to a salvage Z4... so he didn't RUIN a perfectly good BMW to make this monstrosity.

this car reminds me of Michael Jackson. both had some major reconstruction done, both have a salvage title and you're afraid to touch them because you don't know if any body parts fall off.

He actually makes this statement in the auction ad...

"This car is so rare and so certain to retain its value that you could undoubtedly drive it for a year and sell it for the same price you paid for it!"

I feel like that auction needs something done about it. Someone is about to get ripped new asshole. Seriously, can we report him or something?

I know how you feel but unless someone can prove that the listing is riddled with fraud then Ebay won't do jack about it.

On the other hand, if you're someone who reads that listing and thinks "WOW! I've always dreamed of owning a car that's not really what it appears to be, I need to bid on that car now!" then you and that car deserve each other.

Since the wheels are excessively far from the center of mass of the car, I wonder if the wheel shaft(whater it's called) will break when the driver drive through a pothole.
