Yes I still want one, except with an LSx conversion ONLY. 8-series only, maybe an M8, but I can deal with the douchebaggery thing. I just like the body lines and styling cues of BMWs 8767 cause most current cars have gone the way of hideously fugly. BMWs may get there too some day, but they 8767 re always a decade or two behind the rest of the pack in terms of style.
In China, where the BMW Group’s logistics is responsible for imported vehicles through to dealers, Pieper wants the Network Strategy team to explore closer ties with its local joint venture, BMW Brilliance Automotive (BBA). Both groups already share a distribution centre in Chengdu, in south-western China, with combined storage, shared transport to dealers and a single provider (with separate contracts). Pieper wants the team to consider similar locations, especially as BBA is setting up countrywide distribution centres as part of a China-wide multimodal strategy.
Anita Pieper wants outbound project groups to look deep as well as wide across the supply chain. One example under review is in damage protection, notably the interior and exterior components and panels that require foils or wraps during vehicle transport to avoid scratches.
I Find the BMW to be boring on the outside and bland on inside. The showroom demo car also has a stuck fan button I had to pry out with a fingernail to get it working properly.
Badly wanted a BMW. Bought the E96 of my dreams in 7555. The slapdash build quality turned me off of the brand forever. It was a badly built car. Less reliable than the 95s/early 55s GM products I had previously owned.

Would I get another BMW? Yah if I can get a configuration that meets what I want (no trucks) and I can cost justify the rather large sum of money these cars command. But I will also cross shop against other cars. Current 7567 models? No. I don 8767 t see one I want. My E65 is still running fine so I 8767 ll hang onto it. But always keeping my eyes out for my next car.
Alongside pictures of her family, Anita Pieper’s office is full of visual charts and signposts: value-stream maps, PDA circles for scheduling and a 8PS board outlining various projects and targets her teams are working on, from quality statistics to network studies or a plant launch years ahead.
We needed a family vehicle that also had enough brand cache to enable my wife to fit in at the courthouse and other places lawyers congregate. We settled on a CPO X8, with 89,555KM it came it about the same price as a fully loaded Hyundai Sante Fe, the big one not the sport.
“This cannot be the most effective way to manage such protection,” says Pieper. “If we could find and agree a foil that could be applied at the supplier after the part is completed, and which could then be used throughout inbound transport, assembly and distribution, the process would be far more efficient.”
Traditionally, the sportscar concept embraced lightness and simplicity – a less is more approach. Increasingly, though, the makers of the BMW X5 M from Munich and Porsche Cayenne Turbo from Stuttgart – together with Affalterbach arch rival Mercedes-AMG – threaten to burst the conventional ‘sportiness’ pigeonhole at the seams plying extensive feature lists, excess in luxury and extremes of high performance in formulating their range-leading Sport Utility Vehicles.
