Software, biotech, online services, aerospace (especially military), space, advanced materials, clean energy, design, etc. Look to the future man, not to the past.
It's still a first world job that is tempted by uber cheap labor. I've owned an Audi A5 and S5 as well. I noted they decieded to build in Mexico and cancelled my order for a TTRS and told them why. I'm not worried about build quality, i know yall can build them just fine. again my issue is the intended market. If for south America fine I get it.. North America, build them here.

Don't SH$T where you eat BMW. You will be doing just that.
