Lightbulb NextGen 7series Bumper on Ebay!

Guys!
Came around this while surfing/browsing/time passing. Do you think this can be true??

Yes, as the title of this thread says, WCF claims that the next generation BMW 7 series' bumper was found FOR SALE in Ebay! Oh my god. What has the world some to???

To quote from the site:
Quote:
It seems BMW should do a better job of disposing of there old development parts after what appears to be the front bumper for the unreleased 7-series has turned up on Ebay with a rather modest price of €25.50 at the time of this article.
Here are the pics;

From the inside!

I find it a bit too hard to swallow in. I did a quick search on google and found some very interesting things like it being an Audi test bumper etc.... Some claiming that they have no faith in BMW, somebody wanted to graft this onto their civics!!!!
Then I searched on our forum and didn't come around something pointing to this matter. So decided to post it up for all you guys' kind perusal. Now, please take the judges' seats!

Here is the WCF link: Next Generation BMW 7 Series Bumper Found on Ebay



The site also says about the upcoming car:
Quote:
The new 7 series will be launched later this year at the Paris Motor Show and will be the first vehicle to feature the new iDrive system and there are also rumours flying around of an eight speed transmission. Check out the photos for the images of a 7-series prototype caught testing earlier this month.
Some spyshots which I think will be appropriate to put up here:
