Cars as charming as life

Leipzig. “Cars as charming as us” – That’s a motto
of an associate beginning to lift recognition among a group of
farrago during BMW Group Plant Leipzig. But this sign is now gaining an
additional definition as a automotive universe in Leipzig welcomes a
resources of new paint options. Starting today, a plant is finishing
vehicles in Individual paintwork as well. The initial BMW 1 Series and
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupes for those who cite reduction typical colours
are glowing in Speed Yellow, San Marino Blue, Verde Ermes Green
and Nardo Grey.

Black and white are still among a many renouned colours for cars,
though business are increasingly seeking some-more fluent and individual
paintwork. Dealerships now offer 160 Individual colour options for the
BMW 1 Series and BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe, that are going down well
with business notwithstanding a surcharge for matt and Individual finishes.
Leipzig’s sequence books for vehicles with Individual finishes have
filled adult easily until a finish of a year, and a subsequent vital order
is for 180 BMW 118d vehicles in Hockenheim Silver, Ruby Red and Sepia
Violet for BMW Japan.

The lead time for special finishes in a elite Individual colour
is about 10 weeks. Customers can even emanate their possess colours, which
will be specifically churned and used on their automobile only.

So that Individual finishes can be practical to smaller indication series
too, a existent complement has now been upgraded to hoop a special
paints. In addition, new paint supply systems and a new blending area
have been integrated. The paintshop can now paint 5 vehicles a day
in colours from a Individual range.

The formation of a special new colours means additional use and
organisation work for a paintshop group compared with what’s needed
for customary finishes. Some processes, such as sign-off, can no longer
be carried out by programmed means and have to be achieved manually
instead, so a paintshop group has been expanded. For matt finishes
a routine is generally time-consuming and complex, as defects
can't be treated in a required approach that is used with gloss
finishes. Instead, any matt-finished automobile takes 30 mins longer to
prepare. There are now dual matt colour options: Frozen Black and
Frozen Orange.

Individual paint finishes might usually usually be starting during Plant Leipzig,
though already a orders are divulgence a few special favourites:
yellows, blues, reds and violet shades are generally renouned during the
moment, bringing copiousness of colour not usually to a streets though also to
Plant Leipzig’s paintshop and prolongation lines.
