BMW Special on CNBC

Anybody else see this? Just caught this show last night while channel surfing. Actually very good imo.
Brought back memories when showing a segment about ED......
Hope this isn't a repost....

It is an older episode. I feel that they could have done so much more with it.

Instead of wasting time on Rolls Royce and the amount of time spent with the 'chimes' department, they could have focused on the ///M brand.

Yeah, didn't seem much M brand coverage.
Although I don't have an interest in the RR brand, I did learn a few things about the RR relationship with the parent company that I didn't know...

The chime thing did drag on longer than it should...

Since we're on the topic of BMW documentaries, does anyone have any good M documentaries? I haven't been able to find any...

Yes, I believe this aired in 2012. Here is the link for the special.



This felt like an hour long advertisement and agree that they could have done so much more.

If you YouTube search 'megafactories porsche' this documentary felt much more structured and informative about the cars and would have been a much more entertaining and informative if cnbc followed this format

Ironically this came on right after my wife and I were booking hotels for Italy for our ED trip. Really got her interested in the whole ED process.

I remember seeing this special last year and it was really fun to watch. However, at least SOME mention of the M division was warranted!
