Nope BMW sanctioned SAIC to use it already. No doubt SAIC have signed a long term lease from BMW on the contract.podders said:SAIC own the CHINESE rights to the design of the car. Not the whole thing.
If they lose the Rover name, which they will (can't see BMW being happy if they lose their £500m!) then it should be a Morris. Its a mass amrket name with a quality edge to it. 'Quality First' was their slogan for 40 years or so!
