Ever wonder how your E46 was born?

Ever wonder how your E46 was made from the BMW factory? I found this video to be quite interesting and thought I'd share. Not really how each piece was made from raw materials, but the assembly in a big picture. It's pretty sweet!
You'll realize that you're not only operating the Ultimate Driving Machine, but also a precisely designed piece of art.

It's interesting to see all those structures of car.
Can never see everything so well after car is finished.

I realize you have no way of picking up all this stuff when you are new to e46, but this is almost a decade old and posted to every forum multiple times.

That's the beauty of the video. The more you know about your E46, the more you understand. If you have passion for your car, you'll like seeing the machines and workers putting together the frame, fitting the dash on the frame, and mounting on those crappy window regulators. And it doesn't hurt for the new owners to know more about their car.

Although the E46 may also be a decade old, this is still an interesting topic? I couldn't find the video on forums with basic search terms , so I decided to post it. Never hurts.

Awesome...thanks for posting. I watched this 5-6 years ago but it was great to see it again. Wish it had English subtitles though.
