Totally with you on this, but.....I guess making a replica is still much cheaper than the real thing in this case. But if looks are what you want and you're not bothered about performance, it's a good option. (Notwithstanding the fact I have no idea what the Chinese parts look like in comparison to MB parts!).True but, not something i've ever understood. Buy a car, spend hundreds or thousands of pounds on add-ons to make it look like a model you could have saved the money on and bought in the first place - no logic in that? Maybe its just me.
That we don't all think the same makes the world a more interesting place.True but, not something i've ever understood.

There are loads of really wealthy people I know with pretty standard cars parked outside. A lot of them are my neighbours who don’t really care about cars but will spend 20k on their lawn.I agree with you totally. I’m just trying to see it from other peoples perspective. Everyone is different. As an example it always surprises me when you hear of a fairly wealthy person with a really bog standard (but new) car. But I guess to them a car is a car. A to B.
I got a black ebay E350 badge guess I'm some kind of peasant in your eyes funny how you get some people that buy an AMG and suddenly feel like there someone important that can look down on people thanks for the slight entertainment though i just wanted to comment in the first place to let NEW people to the forum know that not everyone's sitting here judging every mod someone does/wants to do and ready to slate them for it.Nor do I; it's the eBay badging that spoils it.
Not sure how much use comments like why spend thousands on a replica when the real thing will cost the same when all said and done, think your forgetting the mpg, tax, insurance ect so its hardly the same cost in the end let alone running costs...
Some of the comments make people sound like there up there own a$$, if its done right and looks good then i can appreciate any car regardless of speed or what bumpers it has on from whatever model ect, if you want to do a rep then crack on its your car your money and in your head its your dream and your journey so just do you.
Just make sure you post some pics when its done.
