In any case I'm not here to bash the Chinese (I truly admire their political strategies, as evil as they may be) or to brag about the fact I voted for the guy who's making my country great again.

I just think the Chinese should take a little more pride in their work and come up with less obvious knock-offs. I mean, it's pretty much a blunt rip-off when you can literally take the door out of a Chinese copycat and install it in the very car that served as a basis for their "design inspiration".

Look, I'll stop posting about this (after this post). My rant wasn't even political (and while swiz also is a trumper, I'm a moderate and rather than voting for the orange one I would have abstained - so I voted for clinton, while hating both - but it doesn't matter, water under the bridge, and as long as your orange leader doesn't fcuk up the stock market, I'm ok) - but when Levi posts what he does, in the face of blatant rip off, intellectual property THEFT continuously perpetrated by the chinese, and so on, I see red. But ok, I see I'm the minority here apparently, so, tah tah.

The U.S never does any evil, like invading other countries, installing military bases and killing civilians, setting up its puppets as 'democratically' chosen, plundering natural resources, managing the narcotics industry, spying on all in the name of security, etc.? Surely you support that, profiting from all the benefits you reap at the expense and of victims and their lives.

If capitalistic Western Europe is so great, why don't you leave North America and your guns and go there, gun free space?

ok seriously, I think we've beaten this horse to death and I agree it's time to get back on topic. let's be non-friends like we never were before. lol

but funny you should say that. I'm not american (though I live here and have had a US passport in addition to my real one for a while), I don't agree with a lot of american policies, like the ones you mentioned, and I'm about to move back to Europe, because, well, I've had enough of the US after almost 20 years. Just waiting to sign the contract, so, there's that.... now let's go back to debating the beautiful, innovative design of this fine piece of chinese intellectual property. lol.

So back to topic: who cares about Chinese designed rip-offs? Those cars are sold nowhere except Asia. The day Chinese will sell their cars worldwide, they will have their own design. And that is already the case with Volvo. Volvo does not look like any other car (Audi, BMW, Mercedes), and still looks good in/out if not better. Hyundai/Kia till now copy other brands, now only interior.
