Brazil is such a sweet market for auto-makers, sell bare-bone cars for 3x the price and laugh all the way to the bank at the suckers who pay US $120k for a base-model 3 series. Don't forget the corrupt gov share and of course a big fat dealer's cut and you have the perfect recipe for a new plant so you can make even more profit!

Quite amazing that they can still find 15,000 rich suckers to buy their cars and pay an extra US $20k to bulletproof them.

interesting point of view
