Seriously, the amount of stereotyping and intolerance in this thread makes me wanna
I agree. But in their defense the German factories do look cleaner and more modern... Or at least in the videos they do.

I have read a little about the SA plant, and what BMW did there is simply amazing. It would have been like having the whites and blacks together in a factory working as equals right after the civil war in the deep south... Well thats a bit of hyperbole, but hopefully my point is made.


I wish they had more videos about the assembly of the engines. That would be interesting to watch.
