We had the news that Mercedes is opening its largest and most advanced facility in Abu Dhabi, and now it seems that BMW is jealous and want to have one of those! They went to Saudi Arabia to build this and they are dedicated to make one helluva center as they assigned a massive 40,500 square metres (the equivalent size of five football pitches) to it! Well this being BMW, they might design buildings and things in the service center so complicating that customers actually get lost in it! (just thought of i-Drive ?!)

Anyway, the Press Release below : by AMEinfo

The official customer launch is scheduled for Saturday, 22nd November.

The SR150m state-of-the-art service facility, covering a total area of 40,500 square metres (the equivalent size of five football pitches), will house a hi-tech workshop – including 66 mechanical work bays – a body shop with 22 work bays and paint shop with 16 work bays and the latest paint mix system and technology, a national parts distribution centre and an extensive training centre with the latest online and practical exercise equipment.
