Where are BMW M cars made?

I’m very attracted to BMW’s performance cars, so I’ve been eyeing the M models as a bit of a dream. I’m curious, though, where are BMW M cars made?

The BMW M models are certainly dreams worth having. Most BMW M cars are made in Munich, Germany. Specifically, the M performance engines for the M3, M5, and M6 are exclusive to the Munich plant.
Though it’s a common belief that all BMWs are produced in Germany, that’s actually not always the case. Here are where some other BMW models are made:
  • Greer, South Carolina (USA): mainly produces X-series crossover models
  • Shenyang, China: produces 3 series and 5 series models for the Chinese market
  • Born, Netherlands: produces X1 models and Mini Convertible and Countryman
  • Rosslyn, South Africa: produces 3 series and BMW Motorsport engines for the South African market
Though purchasing a BMW M model of your own may seem like a stretch, cutting down on ongoing expenses, like car insurance](
