I've seen a lot of Benz badged as Korean vehicles in Seoul, as strange as that may sound.
I worked with a Korean client in Seoul who had a 3 series that he wouldn't drive to work because it wasn't Korean and he was afraid of how it would look at work. So he kept it in his apartment garage five of seven days a week--not that you'd want to be driving to work in Seoul, crazy town for traffic rules.

I'm a professional photojournalist here in Wash. DC...

(... and shadows are very easy to do.)
When you said it was a chop I went back a looked at the photos again. I figured the ones that looked the most fake to myself were the wheel pic and the last pic. When I glanced at the first pic of the rear it seemed real to me.
It makes it probable to me that it was PS due to the relatively easy angles of each image to work with(straight on as opposed to more angle) and the one on the rim which is level. Still, I think a well proportioned Yamaha emblem would look good on our GLK.
