M3 Manufacturing Plant(s)

Can anyone tell me if all M3's are manufactured in Germany or also in the Spartanburg, SC US plant as well?

The only BMW built at Spartansburg are the X models (minus the X1). Even the engines for those X models are shipped over from Germany.

It is a great factory.

Yes, and the X5 M and X6 M are built there today.

I agree with you on the factory- it is world class.

I don't care how many times I've watched those videos. I still love watching them and they, for some reason, make me love my car even more.
