Cover to prevent water splashing. Also it looks like it is funnelling air for cooling as well.

Apparently not anymore since they're using the same production line. A big part of getting an M was the fact that they were handbuilt for you.

From the article:

"1988's E34 M5 was hand-assembled here..."



Other than that, interesting article...

Well actually, they will be moving the production line to Niger.

Of course, I made a mistake. The actual coordinates are:

48 deg 14'52.78" N and 11 deg 37'17.63" E

If I am not wrong from reading from somewhere, that exhaust design is for the proper exhaust pressure wave tuning. It is possible to cause a cylinder to draw in a greater amount of air/fuel than would be indicated by it's volume alone.

Did we all know that metal roof with sunroof would be an option if you don't want the CF roof? That makes everyone happy!

Is the silver/blue paint that is referenced for the sedan a new color?

Handbuilding is overrated, IMHO. YOu get much more consistency being on a high tech line like they have at the BMW plants.

+1. It's like CNC machining vs. turning the dials by hand. How do you want your engine block manufactured? I certainly know how I want mine produced.
