A motorist has taken road rage to a whole new level as he smashed up his own 120,000 euro (£100,000) BMW with a sledgehammer and axe because of his frustration with the car’s ongoing problems - reports metro.co.uk.
Pourmohseni Hadi said he was so fed up with his BMW M6 after more than four years of problems that he staged a bizarre rage-fuelled protest by smashing up the car outside the world’s biggest motor show – the annual Frankfurt Auto Show.
Mr Hadi and friend Thomas Brunner were filmed hacking and hitting the black BMW, which he bought in 2008.
He claims that he has had to deal with persistent problems including vibrations, rattling and shifting jolts during gear changes.
Crowds gathered around to watch the dramatic incident unfold and eventually the police stepped in to quiz the men before they continued to smash up the luxury vehicle.
Mr Hadi, who lives in Italy, said that he had taken the car to a number of Italian BMW workshops but all of them failed to fix it.
Speaking to German newspaper Blid, he said: ‘BMW Italia and the Munich headquarters have pushed the responsibility back and forth. I have written BMW a letter – no response. Now I answer! With this action!’
A BMW spokesman has reportedly said the company would look into Mr Hadi’s case.
