    Alloys are from China and not from Brazil. My 90hp's alloys are made in China, its written on it.
  5. My lineas alloys have Made in Brazil written on them .

    Why are car maker's importing alloy's? I can understand Fiat has to import due to low volumes but even Maruti imports alloys for the Ertiga from Thailand.

    May be cheaper to import than to source locally?

    Except the body shell and tyres, all other parts are imported due to low volume, it seems.;)
