I think you're giving Kelso way too much credit. 3d grade? I could read a
lot better than that in 3d grade. . . .

Youa re going to have to explain to me how Chrysler pulled Daimler
down to it's level. I don't think Daimler sent a bunch of Chrysler
managers to Germany to run things. Given the attitude of Germans I
have worked with think, I think it is highly unlikely (impossible)
that Daimler adopted any Chryler proceedures for building or
evaluating vehicles. I've always liked German cars - at least when
new. And a lot of the hard mechaical parts are excellent. But German
electronics...well they suck. And since modern cars that are so
heavily dependent on electronics, is it any surprise that German cars,
particualrly older German cars, are having lots of problems?
In Germany there are very few cars older than 8 years. German
attitudes and German laws make it unpopular/impractical to keep cars
much past eight years. So I think I can understand why 10 year old
BMWs in the US always seem to have tail light out, burned up
alternators, and power windows that don't work.

You're totally uneducated about Europe then. It's the Italian cars
that have very unreliable electrics. Bosch has an enviable name in all
things electronic and cars are no exception. May-be you're thinking
about some American factory that is turning out Bosch supplies, over
there with locally sourced rubbish parts.
