Interesting read. From what I've read elsewhere, Magna did a lot of AWD engineering. The rest was mostly BMW.
I wonder if the $14,000 includes the engine from BMW's Munich plant. That is $14,000 in 2003 when the Euro was a $1.10.
That is more like $19,000 at today's exchange rate. Costs may have changed a bit too. Of course BMW is hedged at something like $1.30... ..
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
