This week , according to BMWBlog.com, saw the start of production of the new BMW M3/M4 at the Munich plant, an event marked by a few photos and a stern announcement from BMW. Along with those two we also got a short video showcasing how the car is made at the plant where, 35 years ago, the first ever BMW M3 made its way out of the production line.
For the new M3 and M4 models, the plant had to be adapted and prepared but the process went smoothly, according to Plant Director, Robert Engelhorn: “The integration of the M3 went absolutely smoothly. We benefited from the vast experience gained with previous generations of BMW M vehicles. We are very pleased to be producing the new BMW M3 at our parent plant going forward. It’s such an iconic car and has many fans among our team at the plant, me included.”
