What is the most recognizable symbol that is on every BMW car? Of course, the grill is called kidney. This feature has caused a lot of controversy and quarrels among fans of the brand more than once. What if such a kidney was installed in a Skoda?
As a joke, he made a BMW kidney in front of the Octavia
This was done by Samuel Masar, who has a “Mototechna” workshop in Lutynia and manufactures cars there. He was inspired to create the BMW Octavia by a colleague who gave his BMW 3 Series E36 for repair to Samuel at the time. After a while, a friend just asked if he was working on his E36. The editor replied that he did, and as proof sent him … his Octavia with a BMW badge on the hood and a tape cutting the front grille right in the middle. In this way, the car had to pretend to be a friend of the E36.
Replaced the Skoda grill on the BMW
Octavia can even pretend to be a BMW for a while
This is the first generation Octavia to have a rectangular grille and headlights, and the manufacturer’s logo is placed in the center of the front grille. In addition, the author’s car is silver, so it was enough to put a tape of the same color through the center of the grill to seal it. The second thing was, of course, the location of the BMW badge on the hood.
Did the prank work? Samuel reported that his colleague for a second thought it was his BMW. In fact, it doesn’t take long to discover this simple fix. The owner, however, continued to operate the grill for a few more days and pretended to have a BMW, causing consternation among the owners of real Bavarian cars.
And why exactly Skoda? Samuel is a fan of the Czech producer. The family consists of four different models, the oldest being the 105L from 1983.
