Better not pump up your opponents. Short sighted beancounter strategy.
It's not a knockoff guys. It is a BMW sedan just made in China... and ONLY for the Chinese market. It will not have any impact on the market anywhere else in the world. It will still be a premium car with a premium price tag. The only difference will be the costs of manufacturing going down in return for greater profits for both Brilliance and BMW.
If you call this being a knockoff, then you can call all the A4's, and A6's that are made in China knock-offs.
