IMHO they're still doing it.This is how the Japanese started...by copying everything. we will see the road that china takes
Hey, I was going to get one of the SC430 hardtop convertible. But I could not find the roll bars??? And decided against it.IMHO they're still doing it.
I saw some youtube videos on crash testing of the cars made in China. They were horrific!!! The WHOLE car just collapsed and folded from the front to the back with driver and passengers sandwiched in between!!!
This is how it started with watches... now adays it's actually IMPOSSIBLE to verify without a doubt that a Cartier is geniune without taking it to a Cartier dealer having it openned and even when it's openned the internal works is so identical that the only difference is they are missing a "Cartier" sign on the internal components..
One day you won't be able to tell the difference with the cars either... I hope that day never comes.
