Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Plus its about protecting the trademark. If you don't protect it, they can take it away from you and then you would lose all control over it.

I think I'd prefer a plastic 356 coupe, or aluminium Kirkham Cobra rep - you can modify and/or beat on the thing guilt free

That's a fair point.

I`ve seen these at a couple of shows lately

http://www.dnaautomotive.com/

They are pretty convincing, as with the amount of Ferrari badges on them, you can't possibly think they could get away with it !
Mind you, the owners with their Ferrari branded gear on was a bit too far

My workshop mate insists that if he wins the lottery, he's going to buy a Ferrari 360 and badge it up as a Toyota MR2
