OK, this guy's REALLY confused!

I originally saw this on another forum, and since it hasn't made it here yet I thought I'd share. This is horrendous!

For the owner's sake, I hope he did this after he purchased it. It'd be an even bigger disappointment to believe you're buying a MB only to later find out you got an overpriced Mazda Miata!

No, it is just some fool who bought the wrong car, and is trying to make up for it.
