To be honest, we all know about Chinese goods – cheap, nasty and with a shelf life of two-day  old doughnut.

If you are going to clone anything, at least try and clone with class. Yes, Landrover model has been cloned to Landwind. And the case is in Chinese court.  It would be interesting to see how this pile of nuts and bolts fair in safety test.

When Chinese companies take other people’s ideas, it is never to better them (Nokia for instance), but only to produce rubbish that looks similar, shoddy finishing and performance, well , need I say more.
