it's ignorant to assume quality (or lack of) solely because of place of manufacture.

My car wasn't made in Germany, it was made in the South Africa plant, and has been more reliable than many of it's German counterparts.

I've also used chinese made brake rotors many many times on other cars (and probably on my bmw, IDK), and have never had a single issue or failure, even when they got so hot during track days that the rotor hats turned blue.
