Cool. Thanks for posting.

Excellent! Thanks a lot for posting. Very impressive! I actually did not know that the X5 6 and eight cylinder gas and diesel engines were made in Austria. Only the M division engines hail from Munich!

Nice. Thank you!

While I was waiting for mine to be delivered, I looked all over and could not find videos on a current production model. (found a few for Mercedes, but nothing for a modern BMW)

Oh, the one on how they get their crappy paint job is interesting too. :)

To be honest, though, the amount of human labor involved is actually very reassuring.
I'm an Engineer - I LOVE robots, and the high-precision consistency they can give you - but there are limits.

When they say that BMW Manufacturing exports 70% of its product.. Do they mean that 70% of what is produced in Spartanburg is EXPORTED?! It does say Charleston, SC is their primary port..

Correct. The US is only 30% of the world wide X5/X6 market. About 140,000 cars leave the Charleston, SC port every year. More than the BMWs that come in that port.
