Video footage of BMW Production Line - for those of us waiting ;)

Whilst we're waiting for them to arrive, I thought you might like to have a look at how our cars are put together. For those who haven't seen this footage before, here are a few interesting videos showing the 3 series production line at the Leipzig plant in Germany. The 1 series is also built at this plant.

The first video is a look at the Leipzig plant and its design. Amazing!

awesome videos. gave me the goosebumps to think my car is coming through that!!

CAUTION: geeky note: the concept of open architecture for car plants is not bmw's though. toyota's tps and their "muda mura muri' back in the late 40s was the real leap forward .
