that was very cool. so that means they have to make new robots for every new generation of the car or just reprogram them? could you imagine programing the robots to do everything in the exact order needed... wow... amazing.. German enginnering. ftw.

The whole car isn't all built by robots.
Most of it is still by hand like the e46's times.
Its just robots have better quality work then humans(in some areas).

I always laugh at the e46 production video when I see them using a big expensive robot to drop the spare tire in the trunk... Also interesting to think that the guys at 19:20 and 19:30 probably sat in some of our cars!
