Do you know the Avus Performance BMW M3 we wrote about yesterday? Turns out this
Avus Competition BMW M3 isn’t tuned by the German company Avus but it’s a project build by Active Autowerke, a BMW tuning company based in the United States. I hear you think; what’s going on? And that’s exactly what we were thinking when we received the following email earlier tonight:
Dear GTspirit, My name is Omar Murray and I am the Director of Sales and Marketing for Active Autowerke, we are a BMW tuning company based in the US and we have been in business for over 28 years.. I have been contacted by Vorsteiner and a few other companies regarding your recent article on the ‘Avus’ bmw M3. Unfortunately that car does not belong to Avus and is actually my personal car.
That made me wonder if my colleague Lawrence who wrote the article about the Avus Performance M3 made a mistake, but the source was a press release submitted by Avus Performance through Miranda Media. It looks like Avus simply used the photos of the Active Autowerke BMW M3 without their permission to sell some of the ADV1 wheels of which they happen to be a dealer… Not very chic!
