Being chinese myself. I'm forced to live in the U.S. cause Noway in hell i can afford my same x6m in china. It cost a gallardo in the U.S. besides the point that a gallardo in china nowadays is nothing but a sports car to the everyday civilians. (Bigger cities of course) so if only BMW is beating us sales? Not surprised a bit

I live in San Francisco now and have lived in LA in the past. So I have seen my fair share of luxury markets. But Shanghai seems to be in a different league.

Also, I am intrigued by the "gaudy and Chinese" comment. I don't see any Chinese people drive around with Chrome wheels and other flashy stuff. BMW's recent design flops have nothing to do with Chinese culture. Stop being ignorant.
+1 chinese market for entry level luxury is only getting started...

A lamentable trend that pretty much acknowledges the power of China's consumers to influence BMW design.

Basically the M-Sport packages are the default "chrome delete" option.
what?! there's no way you have any facts that prove the Chinese demand is behind the chrome accents. Chrome accents are a universal design found in EVERY European luxury brand

??? I beg to differ. Might be off topic but ok - please allow me
If the guy believes that Chinese have sh.tty taste in terms of cars, where is the racism ? Myself I believe 90% of Americans have sh.tty taste in terms of food but I love America and Americans. I don't see where is the contradiction.
