Rare Photo Shoot inside BMW Factory.

If you have not been on a BMW Factory tour then here is your opportunity (if you have not seen the pictures) to have a peek inside. Once you open this link scroll down to the

BMW 3 Series (F30) Production Process

Open the first photo 131 and then forward thru photos up to and including 160. It will give you a feel what you will experience if you are ever in München and attend a ED or Factory Tour.


Rare look inside the factory on the assembly line here ===>CLICK HERE

Those of you having done a ED know what I am talking about.

Cheers,

Rolf-Dieter

Munich factory tour is awesome, and well represented by the photos mentioned.

BMW factory tour + BMW Museum + a few hours in the Welt is heaven on earth for any BMW enthusiast.

My pleasure ... to see the robots in action along the assembly line is something to behold. Photo 155 shows what is refereed to as "Die Hochzeit" (The Marriage) it is when the lower under carriage with the motor meets the upper carossorie of the car ... very exciting to see in person.

Anyone near a BMW or for that matter the Corvette factory in Bowling Green Kentucky should make it a point to visit the factory for a tour.

Oh yes and if you done it once you are hooked and want to do it again I will next year... perhaps pick up one of the last e92 2012 M3's ... oh ja.

From the moment I left, the only thing I kept thinking was "when can I do this again?"

I plan to go back next year

here is a link to some great video footage you might enjoy in the meantime it is posted at the main page of this forum as "Popular" only not all people enter this forum at the main home page therefore it is easily missed.

Enjoy and CLICK HERE TO SEE THE CLIPS

Nice. I have been lucky enough to visit both the Munich and Spartanburg plant (twice). It was after my first visit to the Spartanburg plant that I become obsessed with owning a BMW. Words and even these beautiful pictures will never be able to explain how awesome it is to see these places in action. Still one of the coolest things I have ever done.
