This thread is bringing up great memories for me. Back in the the Mark was valued much less than the Dollar. We were having the guys lucky enough to be stationed in Germany buy us Porsche racing parts at 60-50% less then we would pay in US.Plus the the military shipping was super cheap.! Guys were buying used 911's for the price of a 69 Mustang. but you could only ship one.

Fein is another good tool company. Although, I'm not sure if Fein is German. (Could be Austrian?)
Shoot, pretty much everything I've ever seen that was German made was excellent. US manufacturers could learn a lot from German manufacturers. Instead of trying to compete with cheap, Chinese products, US companies should focus on high quality that's not easily duplicated.
Yes Hazet tools are also good but I work with Snap On, I think Snap On and Hazet are close together but I like Snap On a little bit more. Maybe because itīs hard to become in germany
I have Snap-On SAE tools and Hazet Metric tools, inherited some of each from my Grandfather and have stuck with both for most new hand tool acquisitions. Yes, Snap-On is certainly a bit exotic in Germany just as Hazet is perceived by some here.

68-70 VW Busses are here but very expensive and more expensive when you want a samba or 10 window. But you really can get very good restored and original ones here thatīs true. If you have the money buy now because in some years they are unaffordable.

You can get the Kinder chocolate bars at World Market here in the US, but not the eggs. They were just a fun diversion when I was a kid living in Germany. Great small item to stuff in the kids stocking at Christmas or just a treat to toss a kids for no specific reason.
I do know a couple friends that smuggle them back in their carry-ons when they are in Germany.
That reminds me. My brother just got stationed over there somewhere near Graff. (Army). I bet I can get him to mail me some.
In the winter they will proably make the trip without melting.
