Default VW Glass Factory at Dresden, Germany

I know its not exactly new news, but I just came across the official site for their glass factory and was amazed once again by the design.

Official Website

Also take a look at This Link from a VW forum

Awe-friggin-some!

The way they maintain it and keep it so clean is just amazing. BTW do they just make the Phaeton in there??

I highly doubt they'd invest all that for a flop show like the Phaeton, though it ain't a bad car.
