Interesting vid, thanks. I love watching the manufacturing process.

That bonnet slam at about 5:30 looked a bit rough!

Ha, that's what I thought too. Didn't close properly the first time so the technician needed to recalibrate his "persuasion force"

What does this have ANYTHING to do with being prejudice? It's no secret that the country builds cheap crap for the rest of the world. You must be fun at parties.

It was a joke, clearly. Dude, are you ok? Maybe you need a safe space to shelter in for the rest of the day. How thin skinned are you?

I have a feeling within 5 years all of the cars we get in NA, will be built in NA. I think the NA built X3 will be available as a full EV. They need to compete with the Macan and others.

True- but are they really competing when all the units are sold?

Dealers sit back and aren't selling. They are order full fillers.

I don't even think that a recession will stop this new normal at dealerships …

The torque wrench at 1:38 puts any tool I own to complete shame! I wonder how much one of those costs!
