This is part of the reason that with the F30 the plant has been expanded to produce almost double the amount of cars, especially US models. Close to 1/3 of the worlds F30 are to be produced here, with only Munich producing more per day.

Just ask SA made E90 owners how happy they ar with their cars.
Australia found 80% less defects when they switched from Germany to South African built E46.
Really glad to hear that the SA plant has such high quality control standards. And you were right about my Singapore-bound 328 being built in South Africa, E90Fleet. Just got confirmation from my sales exec over the weekend that Singapore's F30's are being manufactured in South Africa.
