    Easy: put the Bentley grille on there, they'll never notice.

    I saw some article in WSJ that they are trying to build a plane to compete with Boeing or something. haha, I wouldn't fly on it if it were the only way to travel.

    I recall when Chinese car makers (forget which) tried to enter EU market. What a fucking debacle that ended up turning into. Prospective models damn near getting squashed during EU mandated crush testing.

    I imagine Chinese cars coming without an oil drain plug. Just drive it until it dies, and throw it away for another disposable car.

    LOL wow I was not expecting the entire front passenger cabin to collapse too.

    Amazing the technology in modern car safety.

    Sorry, not being facetious. Geely, Chery and BYD are pretty popular in mainland China. And Buick is considered a top tier brand.
