Re: any difference between mosel and emden?? (av_audi)

What hafa_adai writes is perfectly right, I don’t think there is a difference in build quality between the plants.
I once read an article saying that the internal VW quality audit found the plant in the Czech republic best, this resulted from very motivated people due to a high unemployment rate so everybody tried really hard to stay with VW. If the same goes for Germany (I personally don’t think so) Mosel is much better as unemployment there is much higher than in Emden.
Nevertheless, here in western (west-) Germany people still prefer stuff made in western Germany, even I find myself thinking that I rather have a Passat from Emden than Mosel (no problem if you buy a Variant).
So to answer your question: Yes, I think they prefer Emden.
