Their facility is state of the art.
We can't say the same for the rest... beyond that you are paying a premium
for German labor as you may understand. Because Chinese labor is one order of magnitude then why should it be well taken care?

again, we have no idea if your button is chinese I was just throwing this out
to highlight the 80/20% Germany trend and of course the south african / North Carolina plant... that expectedly quality control must be at least equivalent to apple's in china...
Coincidentally, with the appearance of those plants, and China's masked subcontractors,
we have a general drop in BMW quality..
just correlating...
