Better not pump up your opponents. Short sighted beancounter strategy.
If it's a cheap knock-off of poor quality it won't really be a competitor, and if it's a good quality comparable knock off, it's just another competitor... that sounds like a bad thing... but you can bet that if a Chinese brand was serious about competing globally they'd already have 1,3,5,6,7,X1,X3,X5,X6,Z4 (along with the Audi and Mercedes equivalents) back at their factory ripping them apart for ideas.. hell that happens now in the western world!
Like I said before, at least this way, BMW gets a slice of the pie.
So, X1Li and 1GTLi are on the cards then?
