No choice cos the market is too small (even tho BMW AG owns the only assembly plant in that area). Sales of BMW in Thailand & Indonesia is only around 1k units per yr each (HK over 4k units), so the market is too small to customise individual parts.
For HK, they lumped it together with TW & CHN so the market is much bigger, same with ROK & JPN. Whts surprising is SIN, they should've offered sth there as their volumes are not small & BMW Asia's HQ is there as well.
