C63 AMG
This is unsolvable.......?

I need reassuring that my new C63 has not been built by the office junior one Friday lunch.

I have seen the AMG builder list thingy (the video with the plates), but cannot see ANY reference to anything which even looks like my guy anywhere...!!

It LOOKS like 'Florian Brader'...?

Please help this is driving me mad!!

Call the factory. If he sounds like a slacker, you re f.ck.ed ..

It will be just fine stop worrying about it FFS
 
You will be fine I just found him on linkedin, he is very experienced in fact he came from Lancia where he was previously responsible for rust prevention during the 80's and moved on to Mercedes in the 90's doing the same role. For some reason he was moved to AMG when someone said what harm can it do "one man one engine"

No i'm not worried really, just a nosey bugger lol!
The car seems to motor ok, and if it breaks its under warranty - just interested that's all.

Foreign Barstool - it does kinda look like that!!! haha
 
at least the engine wont rust :)

on a serious note i think that list is pretty old and at least half the engineers on their have moved on and replaced, just enjoy it!
 
He's probably one of the college placement guys they use. They get six weeks at the plant during their summer holidays.
 
Your badge is different to the other ones I've seen.

I woud be more worried about the camera you took that picture with than your c63 - welcome and congrats you will love the car what spec is it ?
 
Isn't that the guy that got sacked for building c63 engines with incorrect piston ring gaps? He got sacked for producing a faulty batch that burn oil!
 
Is it just me that fails to see any practical benefit of the one man one engine philosophy? To me it is just marketing b.s. that probably seems interesting after about 5 pints on a Saturday night when c*ck waving about how many cylinders and how much power a car has. (Don't get me wrong though, I'd rather be stuck in this sort of bragging session than one with a prius owner about MPG)

I've just had a look at the Master Mechanics section on the AMG site and I can't see his name on there.

that's because the AMG site lists current builders, not all builders who have ever built ...
