February production figures says ~15,000 X5s and a few thousand X7s? Not including all the other X's being produced at Spartanburg. Kind of mind blowing that they are churning out 500+ X5s a day.

I have been following car manufacturing since the 911 was still being put together by hand.
With BMW, notice how quiet and the working environment is clean, bright and very open. I have noticed this with Porsche and Ferrari with the same theme. Itís orderly and calm. Look at how the Corvette is built and itís cluttered, noisy with random operations going on. Itís I,prestige how well BMW implemented the European automotive building practices here in the states.

That's pretty cool.

Can't believe it only takes 11 minutes to make an X7.
