Who has the best BMW related April Fools Jokes or Pranks? Check out this BMW UK April Fools gag, its good for a Friday laugh

The BMW Political Roundel Attachment Tag


Soon Great Britain will be in the grip of election fever and as the public goes to the polls BMW has created a unique way for customers to personalize their cars depending on their political leanings. BMW’s innovative Political Roundel Attachment Tag (PRAT) is a highly stylized limited edition accessory of the BMW product portfolio and comes available in the colors of all major UK parties.

Uwe Beanhadde, Head of Made-up Technology at BMW’s renowned Forschungs und Innovationszentrum in Munich, said: “We have been working on this innovation for a number of years and see it as a niche with potentially wide appeal. One of the most popular features, sure to strike a cord with the floating voter, is that the roundel can be replaced in a matter of seconds should the opposition suddenly seem more appealing”.

News of the PRAT accessory comes swiftly after boffins at BMW offered other award winning innovations such as Canine Repellent Alloy Protection that stopped dogs relieving themselves on customers’ wheels, Magnetic Tow Technology, the ultimate in tailgating tech, and BMW Instant Messaging which let owners know what they really thought of other road users.
