Does anyone know if it's possible to tour the BMW M facility in Garching?

Thanks!

There is nothing to really tour, you will be disapointed. If you think there are cool looking cars just sitting aroundm there sort of is, but is nothing more than a bunch of offices and design studio along with a garage where they build things.

I went because I had a meeting with the M brand Manager for North America and had some questions that I wanted answered that I am not allowed to comment on.

Hey brother, aside from my other response in the ED thread, I don't see why not. Only problem would be finding someone to provide it. I've been lucky enough to meet some staff already but I've been told that it'll be basically as Cosmos said....nothing too special. But nice to see I guess.
