BMW announced a $900 million (that's 100 million short a BILLION) expansion at Spartanburg that is adding 1000 jobs: http://www.goupstate.com/article/201...CLES/210051011

Not a new plant, but a substantial addition to Spartanburg.

From my experience, my Mexican-produced Honda has been absolutely brilliant with zero problems. (By contrast, my german-made VW was absolute rubbish in terms of quality and reliability.)
Keep in mind that the 3 series isn't exactly a hand-built vehicle; it is produced on what appears to be a mostly automated assembly line (at least on the production videos I've seen). It isn't like a bunch of 3rd-generation Bavarian craftsmen in pristine white lab coats are lovingly building the current 3 series from scratch in their family workshops. I know many will vehemently disagree, but I'm not too concerned with where my car is built as long as it is built to BMW standards. Especially if it results in a cheaper sticker price!
That's because it is a Honda, I have seen those things drive until the wheels fall off lol.
