Thanks for the heads up on that... that's exactly when I'm planning my ED. I guess I'll scratch a plant tour off the ol' to-do list.

The factory is almost always closed in August. The 11-day shutdown is however much less than it used to be a few years ago, when tours in August on any day were ausgeschlossen.

You can take a virtual tour below:

I'll be there on 8/4, so that's just going to allow me to squeeze in before they close.

The Dingolfing plant is also closed from August 4-29. However, the Regensburg plant is open for tours (about 1 hour North of Munich).

Hans, I'm curious now, is the Regensberg plant open for tours for ED customers ? My pickup is on the 18th of Aug. I'm wondering if it's an option to drive up there after pickup.

I was able to schedule a tour on August 13 using this online form www.visitbmw.com or call +49 89-382-15750.
Keep in mind that regular tours are scheduled on a specific weekday (I believe on Friday's), however, they also offer an "Exclusive Guided Tour" on demand for a fee.
