IAA in Frankfurt…

Usually the IAA Frankfurt auto show shows off the latest and greatest technology, like the Porsche 918 Spyder and the new 911 Turbo S, but sometimes these very public events showcase the down side of the European auto industry.

Case in point is this gentleman from Italy whose BMW M6 turned out to be a lemon. Apparently, no one at BMW took ownership of the various chronic problems that this particular vehicle has, and as the European lemon laws are quite weak (think lemon-flavored water instead of lemonade!), the owner felt his only recourse was to stage a very public demonstration outside of the IAA grounds, where he and a friend took a sledgehammer and axe to the M6. Normally, I am loathe to to see a good sportscar go to waste, but apparently, this was anything but a good sportscar. It is a shame it came to this, however…
