It seems that BMW is adding to the list of Plants that are going “Idle” according to Industry Week. Leipzig, Munich, and Regensburg  will be “Idle” Also, Landshut and Dingolfing may be impacted as well.  “Idle” of course being code speak for closed temporarily. 

It seems that a lot of Automotive Manufactures are taking note of this Global Downturn in the economy and acting accordingly. There is even talk that the allocations have now been cut from some of the BMW Centers so some cars may not be as readily available on dealer lots. M3′s M5′s and 7 series could be a rare sight!

What do you all think about the slowdown?

    They’ll be okay in the long-run. BMW has survived much worse than this.

    I never like seeing people lose their jobs (oops, I meant become “idle”). That’s never fun.

    Ultimately, though, life will continue for us, BMW, and those employees effected by this.

    Damn I’m thinking of ordering a 1er in November or December. Hope I will be able to. :(

    Hmmm if their factories are idle, why not lower prices for cars for a few months during the year to make sure they are going at full blast?

    Well, when the plant goes idle, the workers just stop, stare off into space and rock gently back and forth.
