I personally think that even if you modify the body and de-badge, that's totally fine. If someone specifically tries to pass their car as a higher model car when it's not, that's awkward. That being said, if someone wants to do it, sure - It's their car. Bless their heart, but it's not like they are fooling anyone. LOL.
My obsession with de-badged cars started when I moved to Europe. Most cars on the road were de-badged. You could order a car de-badged from the factory.

I would think it's because RWD has been BMW's lifeblood for such a long time and since they've now flooded the market with all sorts of xDrive variants they want to bring attention to the RWD capability again.

Or it's because people are like crows and like more shiny things.

So, it seems like people don't like fake badges, but what about something more subtle like a giant sticker that says

"MUGEN POWER MOTOR GROUND TOURING GT"

Surely there are worse ways to spruce up a diahatsu?

Or they do it because they know it will piss off a select group of arrogant arses that actually care about such things.
