this seems shockingly short sighted of BMW to me... currencies have cycles just like every other market. as soon as they complete this shift the dollar will have rallied, the euro will fall (economy is looking worse and worse over there) and the dollar/euro relationship will be inverted...

A better argument would be that their profit margins may be a bit higher by producing for the large US market on its own turf and saving on logistical costs, but who knows. ok...time for another (german imported) beer.
