>The German auto industry is already lobbying Merkel to get a good deal - they don't want to lose the UK market (especially as Trump has just imposed large import tariffs on them).

The Chinese market for German cars is increasing faster than the UK market for new cars is decreasing. Volkswagen will sell roughly 2x as many cars in China in 2018 as the UK will register new cars in the same year. Now,the UK market might be important, but less so on a global scale, About 40% of new car Volkswagen sales are now in China.
