One thing they are good at is Hiding their lies from the general Public .
Like it or not almost 80% of the stuff you own are made in China , I see no reason to exclude waterblocks from the list of products I own just because they are made in china .
Did you even read my post or are just running your mouth off after reading only the first sentence? Perhaps you missed the part about how I'm planning on buying some of these inexpensive chinese water cooling gear.
The funny part of your rant is you actually proved my point about German cars like Audi because your Polo was NOT made in Germany. In fact, the polo is made in countries like China, Brazil, Spain, India, and South Africa. All three Audi's I've owned were made in Germany by Germans. The very few problems i've had with their cars over 15 years were always taken care of no questions asked.
And "dieselgate" has nothing to do with reliability. In fact, every single TDI engine while running in "dirty mode" still passes emissions testing with HUGE amounts of headroom. The cars even pass testing when boosted with performance chip software. The only scandal here is VW got the cars certified at a level of emissions lower than where it should have been certified and it didn't meet that standard. But even at the level it does test at, they're still very clean running engines.
