I hope BMW ends up being fifth GM brand, now you are there.
BMW is not going anywhere, just remember who asked for the alliance, it wasn't BMW, but someone at BMW made BMW see the advantage of making this work ... BMW has enough cash on hand to buy GM, lock, stock and barrel ...

Didn't you quit GM, go to BMW for like a day, then back to GM a couple of years ago? That's where the 'waffle' comment came from..
Actually retired to lock in my pension before the suspected sale of Opel to Magna, as I was an Opel employee then. I came back when Carl-Peter went rouge when GM decided to keep Opel, but came back as a member of General Motors International Operations (GMIO) in 2009.

Yeah inquireing minds wanna know. And welcome back you do seem to waffle a lot are you a plant at BMW to pull them into Holden or Opel?
Waffle me? You must be joking ... BMW has courted me for a while at least since this time last year, however the straw that broke the camel's back for me was when I heard Mike Devereux (Holden's Chairman and Managing Director) give a speech that made me think that GM wanted to close Holden. When I asked an acquaintance on the 39th floor at GM's corporate headquarters about my suspicions of the posibility of Holden closing, he got very defensive and would not answer my questions. Up until that time I thought we were pretty tight, but apparently not. That one moment changed my whole perspective on GM and my future there.
So now I work for BMW's Forschung und Innovation Zentrum (FIZ). Which means Research and Innovation. Think GM's Tech Center ... I help bring BMW's latest technology to assembly plants so they can install that technology in our customer's vehicles.
I think I've said enough for now, at least on what I do ...
