    I'm going on Sunday. I know AMG will be there as I was at AMG just outside of Stuttgart yesterday and spoke with the sales manager who is driving an SL55 there to be displayed!

    A bit off topic but I will be in Stuttgart in 10 days or so and wondered if there was anything you recommended seeing(apart from the Benz/Porsche museum)...assuming I get the time for a bit of sight seeing of course.

    Give the S/CL plant in Singelfidden (sp?) a call and ask for a factory tour. If they have room they can squeeze you in it would be worth it.

    Also, try the classic center on Mondays at 2pm for a tour of the workshop reserecting the old timers.

    If your with someone else, boat trips up the Neckar are good too.

    Get any MB parts you need/may need at a dealership over there too, much cheaper than back here.

    Hope this helps! &nbsp;<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    Stuttgart is a nice place , lots of nice shops etc for the misses to abuse the plastic etc .. ;-)

    I have heard the porsche museem is a not worth seeing . The factory is great , we have been twice and the shop is worth a look as the stuff is cheaper there. The food at the kundencentre is great.

    You can just turn up for a tour , but , the w203 was on when we went the last time and the w210.

    When i say on , thats what they were building that week. The presses are somthing to see and you can stand in awe of how the cars are put together.

    Have a great time . On the way back up , if you are taking the car, is Dusselldorf . Its the best shopping i have seen and the atmosphere is good there too.

    ( im a fan of germany in case you had not noticed.)

    Thanks for the input.

    I'm only over for 48 hours so hopefully the server I am installing goes smoothly and I have some time to look about a little.
