Yes. Now the passenger side airbag explodes with no fix in sight.

The "increase" in cost could be offset by the increase in manufacturing jobs. Remember the golden 50's you lefties keep rambling on about?
You've lost what's left of your mind, not a big loss. No, I don't remember the golden 50s. That's your territory, your golden days.

To top it off, you failed to prove Mexico imposes tariffs on US-made vehicles.

Anything else stupid you'd like to do?

So all of a sudden, BMWs are 35% more expensive in the US. Is this going to increase US car sales or is it going to make Japanese made Mazda sports cars or Korean made Kia cars or German made Mercedes cars sell better?

So there will have to be a 35% tariff on those cars too.

The joys of tariffs.

The Japanese used the same airbag manufacturer, Takata, and miraculously they replaced the defective airbags last year. BMW has done nothing but asked for, and granted, extensions. Make their cars more expensive until the problem is fixed and the problem will miraculously be fixed immediately.

Are you trying to deflect from Trump's ridiculous position on tariffs, Jimmy?

No. I am just making over the top domestic suggestions regarding BMW to make a point. I do not pay much attention to Trump's saber rattling. He is acting like a King and that is because of myriad avenues created before him. I am conflicted on his excessive executive orders to undo unconstitutional executive orders because that train is not going to stop.

It is all background noise to me until a Supreme Court nomination happens. The irony is that the people on his short list will not be kind to what he is doing if he is challenged in court.
Thanks from imaginethat and Sabcat

And what will the people who would have bought a 3 series then buy?

And what about the other cars and components built in Mexico?

A lot of your GMs and Chrysler products are built in Canada. I'm guessing that if he does that to those products, we will retaliate and then those East Asian and European cars will start looking really good.

I know we aren't that big a market, but another death by a thousand cuts?

They can still buy a 3er.

I don't think that you understand what is being proposed.
