Starting on January 20, BMW customers will have unique access to the creation of their custom-made BMW X3 vehicles via an online video portal that will show them footage of their customized X3 being produced at the company’s plant in Spartanburg, SC.

Customers can view the footage by creating a My BMW account on bmwusa.com and entering their X3 order number or VIN. Using seven cameras in BMW’s South Carolina plant, BMW deliver X3 customers with video that tracks their vehicle through the various stages of final assembly. The video does not have an expiration date, giving consumers round-the-clock access to the assembly footage, and the video can also be downloaded and shared with interested friends and family members.

That's sweet. I hope this will be made available to Canadian customers, once my order actually hits the assembly line.

Thanks for sharing the vid.

anyone notice some portion of the video stated "Live Camera Temporarily Not Available" ? Also, they showed X3 in dark blue color instead of Silver. So, they don't have all the footage for his/her X3.

Can't wait to see my video. Awesome video.

Interesting concept. I wonder if BMW is going altogether to a made to order system with lean dealer inventories. It's almost that way now on just about anything but the 328i.

Interesting concept... still a bit buggy? Why was your car deep sea blue when the windshield was installed but then turned silver when it finished?

I noticed the same thing. There was a message stating "Live video unavailable" or something to that effect during those steps in the installation process.

Very cool feature!

Great idea this. I think ultimately, when they get everything working, you'll see more of your own car being built rather than the random deep sea blue one! I say you because I doubt we'll get this feature for UK orders for a long time.

I think they only show the automated parts because those are easiest to film, and they don't want to have to screen every single live segment before sending it out to the customer for workers doing inappropriate actions (jokingly flipping the bird to a friend, etc.).

If you watch Ultimate Factories, or a similar show, there is a LOT more human parts.
