I don't blame you for not wanting Chinese rotors on your car.

Rolls Royce Canada, manufacturer of engines as found on aircraft like the Gulfstream G-IV outsources their turbine blades to China.
68% of the blade assemblies that pass Chinese QC and ship will not pass QC at Rolls Royce. That is almost 7 out of 10 blade assemblies go right in the trash.
And these are 6 figure prices each.

Just out of curiosity though - there wasn't anything similar in the Netherlands or Germany?
