Will BMW switch to Chinese suppliers?

http://www.leftlanenews.com/bmw-fall...suppliers.html

BMW is trying to cut cost and squeezing its suppliers. Will BMW switch to Chinese suppliers to cut cost and how will this affect future build quality?

There are some BMWs build in China already, but most of them are just to supply the Chinese market.
I wouldn't be surprised if some part of the car will be fabricated in China, then ship to Germany/USA for final assembly.
Its happening on nearly all manufacturing industry, even Boeing, Airbus are seeking Chinese fabricators. It "shouldn't" be a big problem "IF" the QA/QC is on a really tight leash to ensure the fabrication quality.
