Fake M3 owner busted

This may have made the rounds on here before, but on the off chance it didn't, I thought I would post it. The car is obviously a regular e46, dressed up as an M3, complete with non-M3 mirrors, lack of fender flares, an automatic trans, an intercooler that is connected to nothing, and the owner claims he has a "K&N" supercharger, running 400lbs of boost.
I do hope he is not a forum member, not because I would embarass him, but because I'd like to think we would have driven someone this fake off the forum a long time ago.





Mods - Sorry about the use of the banned "R" word in the video's title.

Busting fake M3 owners never gets old. I'm guessing that's an SMG prototype and did you catch the poor placement of the rear M3 badge? I'm sure the owner was wearing skinny jeans and fake nerd glasses...

THAT is why I put in the legal language about it possibly being a repost.
I can't read everything that pops up on here!
Actually, it came up in a Jalopnik article today. There are some other great ones in the article. The guy with the VTEC Mustang is the biggest bullsh!tter/Troll of them all:

For me, if you haven't got an M3..there is no point in making your potentially still awesome BMW look like one....
The idea is to get enough power out of your car that will leave your M3 driver wondering if he made a mistake buying what he got in the first place. Or you could just buy a real one...!

Those vids are funny at first, but quickly turned sad. Sad that there are people that don't have the common sense to know they know nothing and even sadder that there are those out there that humiliating these simpletons.

Sad indeed.

It's a 323ci.
That steering wheel is clear give away.

What do I always say about 323s?

No, it is not (a clear giveaway). It could as well be 328Ci... Not that it makes a lot of difference since it is an automatic...
