BMW has never built an M3 station wagon, or Touring in the brand’s lingo. The police know this very well, and therefore do not find it normal that some BMW M3 (F80) Touring cars are in circulation. In the UK, one has been spotted and UK police have decided to track it down to seize and inspect it in more detail.
The sports station wagon was stopped last November, and after expertise, the report concludes that many mechanical parts grafted (including the engine) come from stolen cars. Two stolen BMW M3 (sedan) were used in the design of this fake M3 Touring. The first was stolen in 2018, while the second was stolen the following year. Finally, for the creation of the station wagon body, two BMW 3 Series Touring were nabbed. So we had to fly four cars to create the green station wagon.
Considered illegal and dangerous, this BMW M3 Touring was thrown in a chipper without mercy. The police even made a video that we share with you at the top of the page, showing the green M3 Touring being emptied of its liquids and then devoured by the machine in seconds like a vulgar toy.
The owner of the car does not appear to be involved in the theft of the BMWs and says he is unaware of his vehicle’s history. This is why the police point out that it is very important to inspect a vehicle in good standing before buying it. A car well below its rating may seem attractive, but it is often a scam.
“Our Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) is training a growing number of officers to examine the cars we stop to identify if they are cloned or have stolen parts. They patrol the area, stopping and checking all vehicles modified for the insurance and stolen parts. Our expert Boyd Howells says police have had to seize countless cars from people who thought they got a good deal – but in reality they had paid criminals for illegal vehicles made from them. of stolen parts. Buyers do not get their money back. We are seizing their vehicle because it is illegal and dangerous “said Mark Wheaver, a stolen and modified vehicle stalker.
