It doesn't take the same effort to do copycat from the final product that it is to do the copycat when the original design is handed to you, with the machines to build it.

It is short sighted for BMW to do technology transfer of that magnitude to Chinese companies that are notorious for ripping you apart the next day. Chinese goods are bad quality still, but they have already tremendously improved. It won't be long before they can make a car just as good as the Koreans (BTW, the Korean car industry exists only because Opel did the same deal with them, for 10 years they sold badly assembled older design Kaddet, see what they sell today, meanwhile Opel was almost bankrupted).
