I don't know the numbers but in terms of economic growth both short and long term where a segment can afford BMW-s, nothing comes close to China. And over there brand means even more than here. BMW and Mercedes stand to really benefit.

Even before tensions grew between the Chinese and Japanese, the Chinese preferred German. Now I'd hate to be a Lexus sales rep.
