Country of origin.

I have heard that new e90 sedans with six-cylinder engines for the Australian market will now be made in Germany. The four cylinder models would still be made in South Africa. True or False?


UPDATE 30 APRIL 2009:
When I asked for written confirmation from the Dealer, they checked with BMW Germany and found the answer is FALSE.

BMW e90 Sedans with 4 and 6 cylinder engines for the Australian market are made in South Africa. The M3 sedan is 8 cylinder. It is made in Germany. e91 Touring and e93 convertibles are also made in Germany. There are some exceptions, eg. e90 sedan with 4 cylinder diesel made in Germany. Best to get written confirmation from your dealer if it is important to you.

See Post #25 on Page 2 about how to determine where your vehicle is made.
