Mein Auto:
VW Delivery at the Autostadt

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autostadt

Don't kill me, I just want share...

last April, I visited my HS foreign exchange student from Wolfsburg. Both of his parents work for VW.

I want to share a few pictures from VW/Audi Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany. The cylindrical building is where ED (not available for USA customers) takes place. The Autostadt (museum + factory tours) is a nice place to see the various VWs, Audis, and now Porsches, all have their own display buildings. There are also special housing for their exotics, particularly the Bugatti, Bentley, and Lamborghini.

The last picture of the cafeteria for special guests shows the typical precision of the German culture.
