2016 marks 100 years of production for BMW although the actual production of automobiles did not officially begin until 1929 with the DA2 3/15 PS.  Without going into a history lesson BMW was established as an aircraft engine manufacturer, in 1923 expanding into motorcycles, and 1928 automobiles.  The famous logo that we now recognize came into existence around July 1917.
