The 2016 BMW 7 Series Factory Is A Surprisingly Chill-Ass Place

While automotive factories are traditionally thought of as loud, hulking buildings throwing fire and smoke everywhere, modern ones are actually pretty quiet and clean. It’s just the faint whirring of robots and the graunching noise. Especially when it’s a car like the new 2016 BMW 7-Series, which comes complete with a bunch of carbon fiber.


You might complain that a video like this doesn’t contain the sheer informative cheeriness of a normal “How It’s Made” video, but I kinda like this one more. It’s peaceful. It’s lovely. It’s a respite from all the cares of the world, where all the cars are nice and neat, and none of them have been destroyed yet.

This, friends, is your fortress of solitude.

H/t to Antony!

Man... I love watching these auto factory b-rolls. Other good ones to check out are the AMG engine build (one guy), the Porsche 918 assembly line (very silent — no air tools), and the Porsche 911 engine assembly line (since you can see so little of it in the car, it’s cool to see how it goes together).
