In all likelihood, other models are being built there... My point is that only the 325i is being built for the US market...

Why do they build ONLY 325i's there? Why not 320's? Or 330's? Why would they spend the money to build JUST the 325 there? Just doesn't seem to make much economic sense. The same parts they would ship to 320/330 factories would need to go there also. Any comments?

I doubt that America gets any of the South African built cars because we have right hand drive cars and our factory produces 328s 323s 320s 318s and now the new 325s 330s etc for South Africa, Australia and the UK. I dont think they produce left hand drive cars and I really doubt that they will produce your M3s because all our Z3s convertibles and 323 coupes are imported. Im sure our M3s are going to be imported as well, the E36 M3 was imported.
