    Oh great, go and pursue crazy "multiples" instead of focusing on building good cars and making real profits.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Might be helpful if VAG was a company of engineers instead of a company of accountants. DrPeter and I were talking about this earlier today... we'd gladly pay an extra $200 on a new car with good parts instead of the car full of "4 cents cheaper" parts that fail.... glued on rear seals... plastic guides for window regulators... rubber hoses instead of metal tubes close to turbos...

    Accountants ruin cars.

    Something tells me the accountant will keep coming around with a CEO/CFO and needs the next scene of memory.

    Both VW and Ford have been very clear: any strategic alliance would not involve equity arrangements, including cross ownership stakes.
