How much is DA where youre from? I live in Malaysia where Shimano is the cheapest among all. About USD1,450 roughly for complete rim brake groupset. Ultegra rim brake is about USD850.

We're over 10% cheaper in our part of Asia. We do have a Shimano plant here, but no idea on what they manufacture.

KMC makes the lower end chains, they're a manufacturing partner when things are ready for mass production. Chains are intially developed and produced in house by and at Shimano facilities. Some models even start out production in Japan before later becoming made in Taiwan.
