Interesting, thanks for posting this. It's surprising that a detailed manufacturing video like this is publicly available.

Crazy part is how much hands-on time there is for a high production brand.

It's unfortunate that BMW opted to jettison the CRFP passenger cell.

IIRC BMW originally hoped to build vehicles where passenger cell was going to be made of CFRP and the front/rear frames were going to be metal. It was just too expensive even for the vaunted 7-series which was reduced to using CF to reinforce parts of the passenger shell.

BMW divested their ownership stake in a CFRP manufacturer back in 2017.
