I speak them both, german and english, but translating it would take too much of my time, which I
could spend modifying my BMW
But if there are small clips that has a special interest to you, I could how ever translate it.

For me the most important part in this movie has been the dipping of the chassis into the KTL anti corrosion bath.
I live in a country that for month has temperatures around the freezing point. This means cars here, gets easy rust
on body and parts that are not good protected.
Previously I had Ford and they made so bad anti corrosion protection, that I decided to switch to BMW.

I also like to see how they install good parts into the BMW's that is very rare to see in Denmark. The price for a car
in Denmark is 3 x the price in most other countries. This means, most cars here has almost NOTHING installed. The
radio is still a casett play without CD, climate control is manual, there are no leather seats, no xenon light, manual
gear shift, back seat can't be lowered, and so I could go on. I guess the guys at BMW are laughing their a.... out
when they install the BMW's for the danish market. Those cars are really ripped for everything of value.

But great movie, I just missing to see how they manufacture the engines. Could be interesting to see. From the movie
I could hear the engines are manufactured in many different countries. The V6 comes from Austria.

V6 engines?? u mean to say the i6 engines?? as far as i know, BMW never produced V6 engines. it went from i6 to V8.

its not only in Denmark. Even in Mauritius we have few luxuries. though we have CD players, leather seats and xenon lights, we rarely have heated seats for 3-series. or maybe its bcoz we live in a tropical island.. i'm not sure. but its like our 3-series are never equipped of an i-Drive system and most of our bimmers come from South Africa.

It's an awesome process but Ferrari also has a video on their factory, that one is just EPIC. Their attention to detail is awe inspiring. Of course though because it's not a mass production car like the E46.

Good question. Wouldn't want to violate copy-right laws, but if they hand it out for free, I can't imagine it would be an issue, especially with something so old. I would guess you could put a password on it so it's not totally for public viewing, only those members of e46f.c (or other forums) you make aware would know the password. Or, you could just send me a copy.
