      Hi barrier12

      Ofcourse I'll try to translate it for You but unfortunetelly my English isn't very well.


      "Phaetons industry in Dresden is really very impressive. For a long time Im fancy to visit because of my friend who was there and he said its really worth it. It is said that entrance costs several euros but it will be a nice experiance to visit a place where my magnificent car was made. I hope that in near future I do that."

      Hi Fernanda:

      Almost all of the pictures used on the first page of this post were provided to me by Volkswagen, who also gave me permission to reproduce them here. They are, for the most part, press and public relations photos.

      So, if you contact Volkswagen's press department (either in Germany or in your own country), I think you will find it easy to obtain permission to reproduce these photos.

      Thanks to this forum, Michael's excellent introduction to the Factory (in many ways and threads), and several years of hunting for my Phaeton and planning this trip.... I'll be in Dresden tomorrow for my tour. As reported by others, all it took was an email to Katrin, my Phaeton's VIN, and I was warmly welcomed and scheduled a personal 1.5 hour tour. Following the tour, I've been offered a two hour test drive of my choice of a V6, V6 TDI or V8, and either a long or short version. Surprise, surprise... I chose the 4.2L V8 LWB option for my test drive. Autobahn here I come! ;-)

      ^^^
      Is this typical treatment at the factory for a Phaeton owner?
      If so, HOLY MOLY.
      I'm rapidly starting to think that VW group are the best company in the world.

      I visited the factory last September and it was fun, my tour ended up taking 2 hours mostly because we got to the "marriage" station just when the line stopped for a 10 min coffee break. Our tour guide was so nice to just wait it out so I could see how the chassis gets bolted to the body. They even let me push the button to start that futuristic looking bolt robot ... made my day!

      Unfortunately they didn't offer test drives back when I visited. Let us know how that went.
