An irate BMW owner, incensed by poor service, smashed his M6 outside the entrance of the 2013 Frankfurt auto show in Germany to prove an expensive point. Angry consumer justice or is he just wealthy attention-seeker? Watch the video!

FRANKFURT, Germany - Pourmohseni Hadi smashed his 2008 M6, with the help of his friend Thomas Brunner, in front of the entrance to 65th Frankfurt motor show. His tools of vehicular destruction? A sledgehammer and an axe!

It seems as though this is the way lucrative luxury car owners prefer to deal with matters. Earlier in May 2013, Wheels24 reported on a wealthy Maserati owner in China who hired four men to smash his car after experiencing bad service from a dealer.

The dramatic protest comes after Hadi experienced severe “vibration, rattling and jolts during gear changes” which reportedly made the occupants “nauseous”.

According to a post on Youtube, Hadi, took his vehicle to a BMW dealer in Italy "ten times", yet the issue wasn't resolved as the automaker's technician's reported that its computers revealed no issues with the vehicle.

Hadi had also taken his M6 to a workshop in Munich, Germany.


Hadi said: "BMW Italia and the Munich headquarters have pushed the responsibility back and forth. I have written a letter BMW - no answer. Now I answer with this action and I will repeat this protest with a BMW M6 again in Berlin in front of the Bundestag (the national parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany).”

Hadi had a large sticker on the side of his M6 which translates to “Beware of BMW’s illegal actions and poor laws.” Following the destruction of his M6 he commented: "I feel better now."

A BMW spokesperson said: "We are interested in the background, but can’t give any comment until it is investigated.”
