Recently I get a private 2.5-hour tour of the MINI Automotive Production plant in BMW. The most recent actions in BMW plant included strategies to cut 15 percent of its 54,000 North American salaried jobs, including a quarter of its worldwide executives, and to end production at five North American plants in 2019. At this period, I go to the BMW plant and see the vehicles on the production line, explore what vehicle they are producing and how is the condition in this year.
First what I see in their plant is the 1 Series, which is released in 2004, is BMW’s series of compact luxury cars that are offered in 4 body styles – five-door hatchback, three-door hatchback, two-door coupe and two-door convertible. The 3 Series, a compact executive car produced since 1975, is currently in its 6th generation. The 5 Series is a mid-size executive automobile, readily available in the sedan and station wagon forms. The 5 Series Gran Turismo debuted in 2010 and has actually developed a new segment between station wagons and crossover SUVs.
BMW’s full-size flagship executive sedan is the 7 Series which has the current innovations like the iDrive system. The 7 Series Hydrogen, including one of the world’s first hydrogen-fuelled internal combustion engines, is fuelled by liquid hydrogen and emits only clean water vapor. The current generation debuted in 2009. The German maker established the 6 Series in sport coupe and convertible vehicle based on the 5- Series platform. BMW likewise has an existence in the two-seater roadster and coupe segment with the Z4, which is on sale from 2002.
Available for every single world is the Technology and Driving assist, and the Parking assist plans. The Technology and Driving Assist plan add a host of convenience and safety technologies to the BMW i3. It includes the wide-screen Navigation Professional with innovative real-time traffic and the new touchpad, Traffic Jam Assist, BMW Assist with Enhanced Bluetooth and USB with BMW Apps, Online Information Services, Deceleration Assistant, ACC Stop & Go, Speed Limit Info, BMW ConnectedDrive services, Forward Collision Warning, Pedestrian Protection and City Collision Mitigation.

Before leaving the manufacturing plant, I ask the manager where can I buy the original BMW Mini accessories if my car parts are broken. They told me to Buy the car light products, including H11 Led bulbs conversion kit, led fog lights, taillight, etc. at Ledoauto, they are offering these products at wholesale price.
