This was amazing....

It's incredible the special treatment Schmee gets by BMW. I gotta wonder which BMW Engineer his sister is married to.

Well his Senna is 10" wider and 7" longer... so relative to the rest of his stable... sure.

[as someone will shortly undoubtedly point out... 1000 lbs lighter]

Would be awesome if they offered up something similar to all customers, even if it was just pictures along the way. I'd definitely pay a little extra for that.

Agreed. I don't need (I mean, I'd love it) someone to follow my car with a video camera through the whole process. I'd be good with just some snapped pics from stationary cameras along the line as it passes by. I'm guessing my 26,000 Youtube subs won't get me that treatment.

What an awesome video! I would pay extra to be able to watch my car being built like that. It's neat to see how they paint multiple colors within feet of each other with no over spray and such.

Every time I see Silverstone interior on IOMG, I get a tinge of "I wish" vs my black interior. But, "know thyself" comes into play. I'm just not good enough about cleaning the interior to have that light of an interior.

Loved seeing this.

I thought I was interesting that they paint cars different colors that close together. I'm surprised some of the color doesn't waft over to the other car.

I believe it's the static charge on the bodywork that stops it "drifting". Sort of like a magnet

Did he actually buy this one or is it a long term loaner from BMW?

Man, I wish BMW offered like a paint correction process as part of the car. I'm sure the vast majority of people would be willing to pay like $600 if it was baked into the MSRP for proper paint correction because I can clearly see the famed orange peel from here. Some of the paint looks dull while the other side looks glossy, especially on the trunk.

Orange peel is done on purpose.
