    No. It stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke. In English that translates to Bavarian Motor Works.

    Most BMWs are produced in Germany, with some in South Carolina. Z4s and X5s are made in South Carolina.

    There are some factories in Britain, where Rolls Royces, Minis, and small BMW engines 1.6L - 2.0L. Also they have factories in Austria, South Africa, and nine in Germany. All motorcycles are made in Berlin.

    I have to add my two bits in. Its Bavarian Motor Works. Its true the Brits could never produce anything close to BMW standards...its also true that BMW bought Rolls. What isn't true is that Maybach is better than Rolls, and that BMW still owns Rolls. They sold the manufacturing rights to VW many years ago. They maintained the copyright names though. VW is paying out the nose for the rights to those names. Brilliant business.

    No! I hate it when people make that mistake. They are German cars and the B stands for Bavarian. Bavaria is the southern part of Germany. BMW's headquarters are located in Munich which is a city locted in Bavaria.
