oh, mine isn't local, but I thought I would share it anyway.

I think the most common one I see is Bimmers with M power badges that are clearly not in the M series

Default Damn, no pics but did see...

a SCION between the XB or the XD...but it was black and had Lexus badging with an L, Lexus, and I believe it was a IS badging too! But my friend and I had a blast laughing at that! I'm not hating on anything, but its just funny to see people rebadging to what they really should have bought or want! IMO, they should either debadge or leave it alone!

Not a Soarer, but it should say STARSCREAM cuz he has a decepticon sticker on the windshield...and on the other side should say MORE THAN MEETS THE EYES! Again, not hating...but if he wanted a transformer to drive...he should have bought the MR2 with the transformer package and decepticon options.

What are these people thinking haha
He probably wanted an Mercedes AMG...so he should have bought da C class or E ...but looks like he went with the F class...and u know what that stands for! HAHAHA! Again, not hating...just cracks me up! if he wanted to run that AMG badge, shouldve put on the AMG wheels at least...then can back that badging up!!!
