[QUOTE=pilotman;5544250]Does it matter to any of you if the 3 series will be built in the US?

I have always heard of ancedotal reports that US built BMWs aren't as reliable...but I have never owned one.

Interesting that Mercedes is now building C-Class in US, after 25 years of German production.

There is some speculation that the next 3 will be built in US....seems to be one reason why the new US built X3 is cheaper than outgoing model.

Wonder how the German auto unions feel about this?

Since some of them had to work during their usual Xmas vacation to keep up with demand, I doubt that they are too concerned.
