This is a great video, thanks for sharing! Loved the mix between automation and human installed parts.

Would love to have one of those sweet chairs the guy doing the curtain air bags had! Or even one of those wheely chairs with all the parts bins attached

And also at 2:20 unpainted. It's much wider than the following regular 2er.

Don't forget Leipzig produces the 1 Series as well, you can see the hatchback several times.

The 2 AT/GT do not deserve to be made in such a nice factory.

I was hoping to see discarded orange peels in Carbon Black, Estoril Blue etc

BMW must get through so many, they should sell the juice as well.

This is incredibly less impressive than the Audi TTRS assembly tour.

Sorry. I didn't think you actually wanted to watch it hah.

Reasons why I think the Audi one is better:

1. It's the TTRS and not 5 seconds of an M2.
2. The workers look much happier.
3. The robots look cooler.

I'll give you #1.

Not one worker cracks one smile that I could see. These are Germans. Serious people. I want my car built by serious people anyway.

Uh, ok.

You are wrong! The TT is made in Győr in Hungary, so these are Hungarian workers.
Cheers by a happier Hungarian.
