    There’s 2 actually, the worst being the V12 badge....the other is the engine plate on the boot lid....
    Ignoring those it’s actually a decent looking car

    Oh I agree, a tidy motor. Not the first time I've seen someone badge the M156 as a V12.

    With the miles on it I’m assuming it’s either escaped or been cured of the stretch bolt issue ... decent motor

    Does inappropriate exhausts count? These photos are of the new GLA from an Auto Express social media feed.

    This is becoming frequently more normal unfortunately.

    Audi have done the worst though. I think the new S6:
    A. Is a diesel.
    B. Has fake quad tips

    :shock: Not sure how you can get any worse.
