It rolled onto its side.

That's great not only that it's hard to roll in the first place but that are also testing things not mandated.

I remember back when the Z4 was developed that BMW made the A-pillars so strong that you could balance another Z4 on top of it.

This video appears old. Hint is the old tech Nikon camera he was using and the 2011 date mark at the end of the video. Still impressive.

Never mind - someone noted that already.

Customer spoof.

They are not doing this for every BMW Model! Immossible.
They used this one time for study and now everything is done virtually in the CADIA Software.

I wish they would do this with the new X6. Just too expensive for the car manufacture
