Re: Cool BMW Video

Here is another good one. It says s1000rr but it is clearly the making of a new water cooled boxer engine.

Re: Cool BMW Video

I'm kind of partial to this one, I forwarded it to my kids as an example of how to treat their father.

Re: Cool BMW Video

Jeez...you weren't kidding! NO TALKING!

Pretty cool though, I wonder how many of each model they produce per day/week/month/year.

Spring here yet?

Re: Cool BMW Video

Some AA needed in Germany. Did not see one female worker anywhere. Would not cut it here in US. Great videos and gives me faith that my RT will run to 200,000 miles

Re: Cool BMW Video

I'm currently working on my BMW, and it doesn't look ANYTHING like those videos.
Wonder what the difference is.

Have fun,

Actually I was there when that video was made.

Before the shoot all the workers were talking, laughing, giving each other high fives, and such. Then when the camera guy started filming everyone just shut up. Very strange dudes.

BTW - There were women workers there in supporting roles like the one depicted here -
