In my view, what this guy did is downright illegal

Rota "BBS RE reps":

I get what you are saying, but i meant it beyond just like replica wheels etc. Ive seen other cases where there have been straight up fake, labeled parts. Look at the luxury fashion goods industry, its nuts there!

My point still is that both the manufacturer and the customer blame one another for the existance of the replica part.
