I wonder if the fellows working at the "Hochzeit" Station (the place where the lower frame with motor is bolted to the upper chassis ~ I mention it in case some one does not know what the "Hochzeit" means) have stollen any of the critical blots

BMW should have invested in better corporate loss prevention and security associates....$4mil then you see a problem????? Stupid....and anybody on here would have purchased parts from these clowns not knowing that they were stolen, so stop trying to be all high and goodie-goodie!!!!! If you were into VW's or Honda's (like most of us were) you most likely purchased stolen parts for your cars at some point in your life!!! lol

Apparently, something special happens when an assembly line worker calls for quality control check....and they must some how hide the parts or sneak them away.

The word is entrepreneurial

I wouldn't be so concerned about the $4 mil in parts stolen but the hold ups in the production line would have been even more costly!

This is the internet, home slice. If that's all it takes to get under your skin then you've got some waking up to do
