50% surprises me. Maybe it reflects some sales before the dispute escalation. I'd expect at some point it'll approach 0. There is a lot of ill will boiling to the surface. You have a certain percentage angry and willing to act to the point that the rest of the people want to just stay out of the way of this.

Even doing business there I try to keep tabs on protest activity not that it's been a problem for foreigners...yet.

Never again anything larger than a 3 series sedan.
