Great travelogue and amazing photos. Am surprised you guys got permission to take photos inside the plant. Usually they restrict photographers.

AMGs are not made here. All are brought down as CBUs

@ Techno: It was great fun. Btw, dinner at the Boat Club with you guys was great too. Time well spent

Dippy your really lucky man. Great pictures btw. The 3 pointed star looks awesome but the Beamer in the factory steals the cake:-)

Thanks for posting

Excellent pics, Dippy! The Germans sure know how to run their stuff.
You guys certainly deserve a spanking for driving to the Mercedes plant in an M3, no less!

Rating this thread 5 star.

good show dippy. a life time opportunity i guess.

the workshop is so clean and neat and clean. I had been to Ford's Plant in Vietnam and India but the Benz' is really astounding. nothing to match.

the cars are wow and the AMG is absolutely stunning.
