image used by ebay douche

Well, I was looking through f30 stuff on ebay this morning and stumbled across a picture of my own car being used in someone's ad! Not sure whether to feel pissed or flattered

The image was taken by me, uploaded to imageshack by me, and then linked to from this forum. Presumably it belongs to me and can only be used with my consent right?

Seller has Space Gray listed. Did BMW offer Space Gray in Australia/NZ for the F30? No Mineral Gray on his list. Seems like he's clueless.

Yeah, pretty ordinary. The watermark is going a bit too far.

yeah.. I just noticed a second seller is using my pics as well. I guess they watermark because they're worried their competitiors will steal the images they've already stolen. There's no morals in the trunk spoiler business!

LOL true dat. I saw BMW selling some adhesives specific to body parts, keen to find out if the tape they're using hurts the paint.

The betalink kit?

Nah that's the OE spec of attaching the spoiler to the trunk.

You can also use the 3M double sided tape... full strength achieved in 12hours and I've been using that to attach spoilers for a while with no issues.
