I will never buy a car made in Mexico! BMW you should be looking to build a second plant in the US or a new plant Canada! It's a matter of where the money and jobs are going - not a build quality issue to me! Build them where you sell them!!!!
It makes perfect sense that they build them in China for the Chinese market. They have also created customized extended versions for the Chinese market. It keeps a lot of the money and jobs in the market where they sell them. Support your markets BMW! Build them where you sell them!!!!
Just another way for BMW to take advantage of cheep labour to increase their profit margins in North America. I can assure you they will not pass the savings on to Canadian buyers! Our currency is currently at par with the US dollar and we still pay a lot more than our US neighbours.
