Bad Translation :(
Persons employed of the insolvent automotive supplier Karmann for the time being stopped the manufacturing for of Bremen the Mercedes car production plant because of the controversy with Daimler around unpaid calculations. Because Karmann supplies no more raw bodies, Mercedes must stop the production of the SLK for the time being in Bremen, said the IG-Metall authorized person Hartmut Riemann in Osnabrück. One recommended to take remainder vacation or work time assets to the coworkers, who are concerned with Mercedes orders with Karmann, abzufeiern.VOLKSWAGEN is sharpens -??javascript:oW('http://quiz.fsphp.t-online.de/index.php?quiz_id=969','pu',850,700);
Trade union guesses/advises to the Abfeiern

According to data of Riemann the manufacturing rests of raw bodies for Mercedes since past Thursday. A Abfeiern of work time accounts is meaningful for the Karmann coworkers, since with a locking of the enterprise for lack of liquidity the loss threatens the person employed of accumulated overtime and vacation entitlements. “If it to an agreement between Mercedes and the insolvency administrator comes, production surely again is taken up”, said the IG-Metall authorized person.

Another bad translation of a related story:

Mercedes SLK-stop production due to Karmann-Boycott
03.11.2009 | 15:14 | (DiePresse.com)

The insolvent is not a Karmann produces more body parts for Mercedes since Daimler still has outstanding debts to the convertible specialists. Therefore, the production of the Mercedes SLK had to be stopped.

Karmann workers have stopped because of the dispute with Daimler to unpaid bills to manufacture Mercedes plant in Bremen for the time being. Because the insolvent manufacturer Karmann provides no body shells must, to cease the production of the Mercedes SLK in Bremen, initially said on Tuesday in Osnabruck, IG-Metall-represented Hartmut Riemann. At the Karmann orders dealing with Mercedes employees it had recommended to take remaining vacation time credits or partying.

According to Riemann the production of body shells for Mercedes suspended since last Thursday. A Abfeiern of working time would be useful for the Karmann-employees because the employees threatened with a closure of the company's lack of liquidity, the loss of accumulated overtime and vacation entitlements. "If there is an agreement between Mercedes and come to the insolvency practitioner to safely resume production," said the IG Metall-represented by the AP.

According to Riemann's liquidity Karmann without payment of Daimler is still backed up by mid-November. The administrator had informed the employees. Insolvency administrator Ottmar Hermann talks with Mercedes about unpaid bills by Karmann in the amount of double-digit million amount.

It is reported by insiders at Karmann (Karmann is insolvent) that there is a dispute over unpaid bills and that Karmann is suspending the production of chassis for the SLK.
Therefore the SLK production facility in Bremen would most like also be forced to suspend production.

Cheers Wooly.

It just seems one thing after another! First it would be ready at best end of Oct but Nov was more likely. Then it would be ready mid Dec. Then Personal Collection wrote to me telling me end of Jan! After speaking to the the dealer he said I've got a build day of mid Nov so no reason why it wouldn't be ready this year...... well, until now!

If it's next year, I wonder if MB will pay the 2.5% extra VAT????

Ouch. Sorry to hear that, beef. I can't imagine waiting months and months for a car. I've waited that long for a house, but not for a car. Hey, who knows, maybe they already have the panels allotted for your car. It could happen.

there is talk of it possibly going up to 20% :tazz:
Stop the country, I want to get off!!

Anyways, I spoke to the dealer and he reckons that it has a built date of the 18th Nov and therefore would start to be built on the 11th. So as boogie says, they may already have them.

...well I can dream can't I?.....

:tu:Custom order is the best bet if you can tolerate the wait. I hope your SLK is built as scheduled without further delays. I also hope for a quick resolution between MB and the parts supplier.

My apologies for hijacking this thread for a moment, but I have to vent:soap:
VAT= value added tax
There is no Value Added!!! It is just a Penalty given to anyone getting anything of value :tazz::tazz::tazz:

True, still it's preferable to income tax, but guess what we got that also.
