Also the point someone above made about the X's and Z's being made in the USA... not wishing to offend, but most people in Europe really don't consider Americans to be that great at designing and building quality product either - Made in the USA is hardly a stamp of quality, but that doesn't mean to say the vehicles that roll out of Spartanburg are any worse than those from the European plants.
Lol, go look up where designworks is located. Guess the 3 series and RR phantom were designed poorly.
worst part of this "deal" is that most likely we will be getting chinese parts in our BMW's and still be paying the premium price. At that point you will be paying just for the badge and not any quality advantages versus other brands.
