This is pretty funny, but the more I thought about it, the more I think it's ingenious.

This product has a decent market to the wanna teenager buying stickers and emblems for their car.

In addition, this product will probably actually pass as the real thing to the casual eye.

Haha, wow...that is genius! This definitely creates a whole new market for products of a similar nature.

I'm not going to say squat. Right when I get done laughing insulting the guy, he'll probably get a plug on Oprah and be selling 250,000 of them a week.

OMG I saw that over at LP or TL ... if the guy sells 20,000 its really a sad state of affairs for our country .... almost as bad as "I personally believe, that people can't find America on a map, because U.S. Americans don't have access to maps, and that in the Iraq, we shoud help South Africa, such as, therefore, because the Asian countries too...."

Did you see the questions they were asking the seller?

My fave is the guy who wants to buy 2 (wants a discount), so he can mount one on the roof, and another inside the car-- so it looks like he has one when he sits inside!

WOW!

:iamwithstupid:

Sheesh. And I thought the guys who bought Lexus tags for their Toyotas were bad.

My Lambo doesn't have a top ... its been tossed aside in the garage, behind the toolbox with all the scorpions.

Re: Ingenious... wasn't sure if this should be in the funnies or

Some great questions from the auction... I love how the guy actually answers them all.

Q: What is this magnetic technology? so is it a sticker or a magnet?
A: It´s a magnet and a sticker so it can stick better to the car.

Q: Is this the kind of sunroof that slides back or only pops up?
A: This sunroof is only ornamental, it´s a sticker that gives your car the look of a real sunroof, but it doesn´t slides back or pops up.

Q: Does the product come with instructions on how to cut the hole in the car roof?
A: This sunroof is ornamental, it is only a layer of stickers that attaches to your car, without any holes and gives the car the appearance of a sunroof.

(My favorite - if you're a car forum buff)
Q: how much horsepower does this add?
A: The self adhesive sunroof doesn´t add any horsepower to the car.

Q: How does the sun get thru the roof?
A: The sun won´t get thru the roof, because the self adhesive sunroof is a sticker that gives your car the look of a real sunroof, but you don´t make a hole to the car.

Q: can I get away with only buying one, for two cars... and switch which one I put it on depending on my mood?
A: Once you install the sunroof if you take it off, the sunroof won´t damage your car, but it will not be able to use on another car, this is for prevent burglars to steal it.:smilielol:

Q: my car does not have an anti lock braking system - i am interested in an abs light for my dash - i cannot afford nor am i interested in the actual braking benefits of an abs system - i am solely interested in tricking people into thinking my car is safer than it is. do you or are you looking into prototyping this product - it seems like its up your alley.
A: We are working on new ideas, thank you.

I honestly can't remember looking at a car and saying "Wow, that sunroof looks great". I actually prefer the clean look of no sunroof.

Well, there ya go. Another great business idea.

Just email the guy, and he'll probably come out with a kit that paints over a sunroof, for people who don't like 'em! :rolleyes:
