Changing your BYD S6 into a real Lexus RX350 in China

The BYD S6 SUV is a copy of the last-gen Lexus RX350. This ain’t no secret thing, even the not so critical Chinese press agrees on this one. For buyers who want to pretend they are very rich two problems remain; those damn BYD-badges all over and the grille doesn’t really look Lexus.

Not a big problem, BYD dealers usually sell Lexus-badges and a Lexus-grille straight with the S6, they even put it on for you. Here we have just such a set, it consists of one Lexus grille and 10 Lexus badges, all this for only 600 yuan or 95 USD. A closer look, at things:

    In our country this is considered an illegal car modification, like try to change the car engine´s serial number.
