Production

Does anyone know if the 3 series are made in one dedicated factory? If not, has anyone noticed any quality differences between the factories?

Garage List
The 3 series is made in South Africa (Rosslyn Plant), in Munich and a new factory in Leipzig (also in Germany).

No one can really say if there are any quality differences between the factories - but just from reading this forum we've noticed the German built cars have idle shakes that the south african built cars don't have!

South Africa won the BMW Quality award for the past 7 years (i think!)

Does each market (eg. Canada & US) get cars from the same or different factories?
