Btw - Big changes in manufacturing processes have helped Ford of Germany nearly double its productivity over the past four years.

A prime example of the change is the Fiesta, built in Cologne. In 2003 it took Ford workers 24 hours to build the car. Today, it takes just 13 hours for the plant to build a Fiesta. And that's with about 1,000 fewer employees.

Ford of Europe assembles the Fiesta in three shifts at Cologne, the lead plant for the car. Currently, about 1,950 units roll off the line there daily.

It is scary when you think how many cars are running off the production line - in the time since I placed my order, and assuming they do not shut the lines down at weekends, 113,100 new Fiestas have rolled off of the Cologne production line alone.

They are getting more and more common though, it's sad. When I first got mine it was one of the only ones, every day I see more and more around. Shows what a good car they are though!!
