Yep, they are literally next to each other when you drive on I85. Reason why Michelin is tehr is bcs. BMW established its factory there.
I’ve been leasing Renault’s for years. Yes, brand new car My name, my USA address. All insurance included. No VAT taxes. After my lease, I sign car back to them and they then sell it as a used car. I’ve done it six times. Never a problem.I remember when this program started with all of them and it was implemented NOT for enthusiasts, but for those people that went to EU and rented cars. The take and truth was that...if you buy one of our cars these are the benefits..... and it proved true, they also included the shipping to your home country and paid for the airfare and hotel for 3 days. Actually the 1st to do something similar was the french Renault, where you could buy a new Renault and then sell it back to the factory for a set price instead of renting a car, it was decidedly light years ahead in cost and a very good deal (don't know if it is still active)
