New videos showing 7 series assembly at Dingolfing plant

Pretty cool videos in the link below, also shows the assembly of the 5 & 6 series which are built at the same plant.

And a side not, during this LCI 7 series event I attended last week, the rep from BMW said close to 300 buses are used daily to bus in and out all the workers at the factory which is the buses you see in the first video.

The fools. Now I know how to make my own car. Just get the tools and materials from Amazon.com and Home Depot and I'll be making BMWs!

Wish they had one of those cobblestone road simulators over at Center BMW so those boneheads couldn't give me the "we can't reproduce the noise" excuse
