Cool stuff, judging by the capture ,I think BMW wants to please European customers that they employ skilled workers not average low pay ones

I've seen these videos. The first one is the F10 in Germany. The second is the G30, but I think the screen shot is the Euro plant while the actual video is of the plant in China.

You can tell from the sticker where the car is made, and it's probably coded in the vin number as well.

The i3 is built nearly identically, it is just beaten with an ugly stick at the end.

Relax, China is producing L version of G30 for domestic market used only. Besides, if China were to ship out a 530Li to Europe. I guess not much ppl will willing to pay the extra monies.

Only L version made in China, and it's G38 (not G30). G38 only for Chinese market.

It is. In fact it's the very first thing in the VIN, a country code.
