    I have the DVD of Ferrari Factory; produced by national geographic.

    I was very amazed about the fact of engine production place.

     I saw one with the BMW factory, making of the Z4.  

    quite amazed at how much of it is done by robots.


    Re: Mega Factories - Audi R8

     I went to Neckarsulm to pick up my Audi, as it included a factory tour and a nice meal and stuff. As I arrived there, they told me it was only A6 tours that day, man was I disappointed....

    As they carried us around in a bus, I could even see part of the R8 production line, but they did not even stop the bus!

    How could they do that?

    The tour was interesting still.


    Re: Mega Factories - Audi R8

    Did you pick up your R8? I would complain in that case...

     No! A4 Cabrio it was, still way more beautiful than those A6 I saw being built Smiley

     Sadly, no. Once we left the customer area, I had to leave the camera in a locker. Some people did take pictures with their mobile anyways, but I didn't.

    In Porsche they don't allow pictures too and they ask for mobiles to be hidden, but the following explanation was given:

    If any pictures with people (like factory workers) are published  in magazines newspapers etc, these people can sue according to German law  if they were not asked and approved beforehand. So, the photo ban supposedly is to avoid this eventuality. True or false Smiley

    It's not where you're going, it's how you get there that counts

    Re: Mega Factories - Audi R8

    That argument is true, but it also applies to every photo you take on the street.

    Everyone publishing a photo knows that anyways and there is no restriction on private use of the pictures according to german law.

    So while not wrong, it's certainly an excuse.

    Re: Mega Factories - Audi R8

    I toured the Lambo factory and almost everything is still done by hand, especially on the Murcielago line. No cameras or cell phones were allowed in the factory, probably so you wouldn't take pics of all the Audi labeled parts on the Gallardo!
