The event was much bigger than I anticipated. It was a huge turn out. There were about 150 people. It was a lot of fun. Free food was good too. ;)


Check out the crowd.


Standing room only.


Mike on the stage giving a speech.


Engine training classroom. This engine is for the Panamera. How would you like to have a spare one in your garage.


I believe they are the instructors.


Transmission classroom.


How would you like to get hand on training under one of this?

I still have many many more pictures. I'll try to post them as fast as I can. Wait until you see the warehouse.

More close up on the engines.





I wonder does this run under XP or DOS?? They have 2 on every classroom.


You can eat off this Panamera belly.


All kind of fancy adapter for the hydraulic press use for transmission assembly.


I thought the 17.5 ton press was impressive...


Then they shown us this 40 ton press. Yikes!!


Another fancy tool to measure gap on transmission...


In micronmeter...thickness of a human hair.
