Ok, guys... I have booked a tour of the BMW Plant in Regensburg!!!

We will see how the F20(1er) and F30(new 3er) and e9x M3 models are made. The tour lasts about 2.5 hours, and we will be walking about 4km, so bring some comfy walking shoes! Cost of the tour will be about ten euros per person. We have eleven people already signed up. We are limited to the forst thirty slots or people. So first come first served. Send me a PM or post in either thread(1Addicts or M3 forum(s)).


Monday, December 17th, 2012 at 08:30 h

We can't tour the motorsports dept. But we can see how they make the cars we LOVE! The tour lasts 2.5 hours and kids(4yrs and up!) are welcome too.


Regensburg Werk builds: BMW 1 Series, BMW 3 Series and BMW M3 models's.


So who is in?

What does everyone think? I might go scout out a hotel in the Regensburg area to stay at Sunday night.


Here is a pdf document from BMW AG on how & where to meet for the tour... We should plan to meet around 8am at the factory.



Some of us will be staying at the Courtyard Marriott.

The rooms at the Marriott(Courtyard) start at 80 euros per night. Thats a pretty decent rate. When I looked for rooms last month... most were over 120 euros at other hotels. Plus parking was tough since those hotels were downtown.


Courtyard Regensburg
Bamberger Strasse 28
Regensburg, Bavaria
93059 Germany

Too bad we haven't invented Star Trek style transporters yet, because if we did I'd sign up for that BMW tour

BMW won't allow any cameras inside the factory. But they will allow us to walk right up to the cars and machines building the cars.

If it were not at 0830 in the morning I would be able to make it. Afternoon tour would have worked better.

I would love to go but that's a long haul from Aachen area. Maybe in the summer when the weather is nice. Maybe I can ask some others from ///MFlight in this area to convoy. That would be really awesome.

BimmerJim

No problem Jim. Have a safe PCS.


I will take as many pics as they will allow us. But I suspect that will only be in the lobby. Once you walk thru the factory gates, its strictly no pictures. At most factory's they make you lock up your cameras, cell phones and any other electronic device in the lobby lockers. By far the worst case was when I went to tour Lamborghini factory!

We still have space IF there are any last minute people. Please come and enjoy the wonderful world of BMW. Perhaps in the summer we can also do this tour again.

Some of us 1Addicts will be going to the Nurnberg Christmas Market or the Regensburg Christmas Market. You will be sure to get a real flavor of Germany on this trip! We will be staying at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Regensburg. Rooms start at 80 euros. Here are some pics...

No problem. This most likely won't be my last factory tour/visit there.

I want to find out how we can get a special tour of the ///M Motorsports dept there in Regensburg Werk. I understand that is where the M3 GT3/4 and Z4 GT3, and the 24 hour('Ring) cars are built. Someone told me that many moons ago ///M Flight did a special tour there in Regensburg. ? I'd like to tour that race dept come Spring time.

Ok guys... I'll see you all at the Courtyard Hotel tomorrow evening or at the BMW Factory at 8am Monday morning. I'm bringing some BMW goodies I picked up at Essen Motor show for you guys.


We will be around ten or twelve people for our factory tour(max is 30 ppl). SO... if anyone is on the fence about coming... just show up and I'll get you in on the tour!
