Fake BMW X5

Shuanghuan SCEO (Chinese Car)

BMW sued Shuanghuan (in China); saying that they believed the SCEO is a copy of the BMW X5. (We agree with BMW)

The sales of Counterfeit BMW Parts and BMW copyright material on internet auction sites is widespread.

Copies of BMW software such as BMW Workshop manuals, BMW Satellite Navigation system maps and updates, BMW Engine diagnostics and BMW re-mapping software etc is currently available. Much of this material also uses BMW copyright images (such as the "BMW Logo") and any sales from an un-authorised party can obviously directly affect the BMW supply and maintenance chain (including BMW Dealerships), whilst possibly financing criminal or terrorist activity.

Additionally; some copied disks labeled as "BMW" contains viruses, malware and - or computer hijacking software, whilst the failure of some bootleg mechanical components (such as brake components) can be potentially life threatening.

Many Counterfeit BMW Car Parts are manufactured in the Far East (Particularly India, Taiwan and China). China is the main source of many Fake BMW Car Parts such as Fake BMW Alloy Wheels, Fake BMW Body Kits, Fake BMW Steering Wheels etc.

In most cases these goods are sub-standard. Eg; Fake BMW Car Parts may not fit correctly, the foam within Fake BMW Spoilers and Fake BMW Body Kits can expand in hot weather - thus causing blistering and cracking - ruining the look of the car, whilst fake BMW steering wheels have been known to crack - break. Fake BMW steering wheels are often manufactured from sub standard metal and plastics - the airbags usually either fail, or explode during an accident.

Surely; knowingly fitting Counterfeit BMW Spares to a genuine BMW car borders on stupidity. But knowingly supplying fakes is a crime.

However; using Counterfeit BMW Parts can be both a false economy and fatal. Components such as Fake BMW Alloy Wheels can be prone to cracking and vital components such as Counterfeit BMW Brake Calipers, Counterfeit BMW Brake Pads are often made from sub standard components which simply fail under pressure.

For some time now, UK Anti Piracy has monitored and taken action on behalf of Multiple interested parties. We continue to develop and expand this relationship and we can work with BMW, UK Trading Standards and online services to significantly reduce - hopefully eradicate the supply of Counterfeit BMW products, Fake BMW Parts and pirated BMW software on eBay, other auction sites and the internet in general.
