Random question. BMW and Merc supplied UK with ZA-built versions of many of their big sellers (3-Series, C-class) for much of this century so far - the ZA factories apparently being their global producers of RHD. Did Audi ever do anything similar. Could this one actually be returning home after a life of adventures far away??

My M-B C class was definitely built in Germany according to its VIN, and I've never failed to find the steering wheel is on the right.

Is the VIN plate a falsehood?

^ see Link to "www.daimler.com" , Link to "www.caradvice.com.au" etc. Looks as if ZA was saloons-for-export, not the estate. But this ZA scenario stuck in my mind for Brexit relevance. Lots of Brexiteers saying German car manufacturers would pressure EU to keep UK tariff-free so they can keep selling us their stuff as if it gave us a major negotiating strength. But if it goes wrong, Merc, BMW etc could just send us more ZA cars instead of from D.

Quote South Africa's trade relations and development co-operation with the European Union are currently governed by the Trade, Development and Co-operation Agreement (TDCA).

The Trade, Development and Co-operation Agreement has established a free trade area that covers 90% of bilateral trade between the EU and South Africa.

Link to "ec.europa.eu"

If ZA-made cars are zero tariff now under the TDCA, then a hard Brexit would lead to the UK re-imposing import duty on ZA-made cars as well as EU-made ones, so there would be no advantage to moving production for the UK market.

Of course, South Africa is one of the countries that Leave campaigners want to sign bilateral agreements with, but that's not going to happen overnight,

I never buy saloons since they don't match what I want a car for. There's always a couple of dogs or a dead freezer or similar that need transporting, and even hatchbacks were more useful than saloons. I recall getting a complete bathroom suite in the back of a Maxi, although it had been cut, or smashed up, into bits. My C-class is now approaching six years old, and I am considering buying a Mercédès GLC. Where is that built?

Rfs and I have looked at a BMW X3, but thought it poor value for money, and a bit tinny. The Audi Q3 also looks a bit expensive for what it is, and the M-B GLA looks like a Nissan Puke, so is completely out of the game, even if it wasn't a Renault in disguise, which means you would be paying M-B prices for a Dacia Duster.

To answer your GLC-related question: The European market is mainly sourced by the Bremen plant with some additional ones coming from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valmet_Automotive#Present_production .

These agreements will not going to happen at all.
No country will prefer a bilateral agreement with Brexit-GB against the agreements with the EU. These EU-contracts often contains clauses, that extra agreements with other countries are not allowed.
