A few things to look at...

1.The commissions may be different.
2. You'll tend to get more liquidity in the local exchange, though that's not true of all Pink Sheets-listed ADRs.
3. If you buy in local currency, you're netting out potential currency effects -- something you may, or may not, want to do.
