Good read. And to spread the word automotive parts can be manufactured anywhere in the world, not only Japan or Germany. When suppliers say “original parts from Japan” or “wait for parts from japan”, I just wanna smack their face!!

Best was an army mate during reservist driving a VW Jetta Mark V and telling everyone he's driving a car that is the same-same as Audi because "it's also made in Germany by the same parent company". 

I didn't have the heart to tell him his Jetta Mark V was made in Mexico.

Coronavirus Is Shutting Down Factories in China. Auto Makers Will Feel the Pinch.

Auto makers with major exposure to Hubei include Dongfeng Motor Group (DNFGY), General Motors (GM), Honda Motor (HMC), France’s Groupe PSA and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance.
