Furious Rich Man Trashes £90k BMW in Massive Sulk Over Reliability

By Gary Cutlack on at

Italian businessman Pourmohseni Hadi felt he'd been given the run-around by BMW, with the car giant not managing to get to the bottom of his 2008 BMW M6's numerous issues. So he parked it outside the Frankfurt Motor Show and smashed it up with an axe and a mate with a hammer.

Hadi says the Italian BMW garages weren't helping him, nor were the car firm's German bosses. He tried writing letters and didn't get a response. So for some reason he decided that the next logical step to take was smashing the thing up in the road outside a car show. Not only that, but he's going to have it repaired, then plans to smash it up again outside the German parliament to further promote his reliability complaint.

And as if things weren't bad enough, the video of the event shows that traffic cops turned up and gave him a ticket for being illegally parked as well. [Jalopnik]
