He also complained about scuff marks on one of the doors that was usually kicked open. It's remarkable how they design, test, assemble, and service all of their cars there --- the F1 road car, the SLR, and the Formula 1 race cars. That last picture is their wind tunnel.

Interesting pictures, thanks for posting. Stark contrast to many north american automobile assembly plants.

+1 People saw the VW and looked away. I worked in a VW dealership the summer of 05 and got to drive a few that came in for service and they were just beautiful cars.

At the aforementioned dealership, the shop and service area were incredibly clean...and this is the largest VW service center in the country

I think this interior is interesting.





I really like how there is very little red, other than the carpeting; it's just enough to make it cohesive but doesn't overdo it.
