China.

Cars (and other machineries) are never made in one country. Correct me if I'm wrong, a lot of parts of WHATEVER cars, especially electrical wires, buttons, etc etc are made in China, Vietnam, Thailand and other southeast Asian countries.

There was a similar discussion last week but my position (and Sickfinga's if I can speak for him) is that provided the quality control, training, and facilities, are the same across the board, it should not matter where you buy the car.

I suggested that if people are concerned about this (enough not to purchase) they should not buy a Z3, X5, Z4, X3? as they are built in a country which has very poor car quality standards. But of course that is sarcasm as regardless of the big three's quality issues, BMW likely ensures the same/similar standards in all locations.

maybe thats why BMWS arent reliable anymore .... im a fan of the M series.. thats about it, i wouldnt own a BMW if it wasnt an M... because they arent anything special and alot of jap cars now are ahead of em and have incredible reliabilty and their prices are superb.

I think it's very hard to say is it bad or good for BMW.I rememebr in Sarajevo they used to build GOLF 2nd generation...It had TAS logo beside headligts...It stands for "Tvornica Automobila Sarajevo" in English "Industry of Automobiles Sarajevio'" Something like that it means...The cars are like from 1986 - 1992 and I still see them on streets....Not sure if they came to North America...Maybe it depends on how strict the firm is.
