    they really want to impress whitey. I saw a few of these in rural Beijing. They are upgrading ey?

  4. AlleyCat says:

    BMW 5-series are made in China. So as part of a marketing-strategy they probably got a good deal.

      hey guy most cars sold in China are made in China, because the import tax and tarriffs are insane. Now its saying something if they were driving in exotic cars.

    I wanna be a cop driving a BMW 5series…. they would do anything to impress foreigners!

  7. dilladonuts says:

    for public reputation, you might get more traction from actually doing visible police work in front of visitors/foreigners rather then driving a 5 series bmw thru a red light with the sirens and police lights flashing for no reason other then to feel important whilst smoking a cigarette and honking at the poor fella and his family on a moped.

    think of it this way no one is going to ding or scratch those BMWs.
