I'm working on changing out the power steering lines and the oil hoses to/from the filter canister (which go through the engine mount) on my BMW, and one of the oil lines I noticed was made in China. I got this from a BMW dealer, so obviously BMW is outsourcing at least some part production to China. Maybe I missed they were doing this but I hadn't seen it before on any parts I got from the dealer. BTW what a tedious and difficult job it is to change out those lines while the engine is in the vehicle. I don't think I've ever done a more difficult job on any car, ever.
