No need for this comparo. BMW would win it hands down because we Europeans are so sophisticated.

For some strange reason, I fail to see where this is a problem...............

(looks like your typical Hawk Rally; only with more people)

Default Just Plain Wrong!

Made in China! This is a BMW it should be made in Germany. Europe is acceptable, but China?!?!
We have sold out soul to the lowest bidder.
I want USA products made in America. Hondas from Japan and BMWs from Germany.
I hope I can buy an American Truck next year, a European Motorcycle and perhaps a Japanese sportbike.
A Chinese BMW Damn!

That's just economic globalization. Haven't you heard, outsourcing's gonna make stock prices and dividends go through the roof! How's your stock doing?

Man, that happened so long ago here in the US, I can't even remember when it wasn't so.

Actually my portfolio is not horrible. Is that a merit for or against globalization?

Accept vanilla you'll get it. The best products won't be globalized. The products may be cheaper, but they won't have character. You just can't reproduce regional flavor. Come on, the best engines where not perfect,but they had character. Is outsourcing globally more economical,yes... but, at what cost? A Chinese BMW...
