Which products from Germany/ Europe would you like to have in the USA
I´m from germany and I buy sometimes stuff in the USA like tools, fishing gear, parts for my cars, clothes etc. and today I were thinking which german products, maybe audi, mercedes, vw parts would be interesting for USA citizens. Is there anything? Do you maybe order sometimes products here in europe?
Festool woodworking tools! Festool makes amazing tools. You can get them in the USA, but they're very expensive. I don't know if they're any cheaper in Germany.
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.

Friends! met a german fellow and his family last year after he purchased a 68 mustang convertible that needed restoring and has a house about 10 blocks from me-my mailguy told him about my love of mustangs ect and we are now great friends along with his family and my wife and i. Unfortunetly he can only stay 3 months at a time because of immigration restrictions. Ive never drank soo much beer since! wes
Yes the beer is good ;-) but for sure the festool and fein products are really amazing in germany the prices are pretty high also for festool and fein products because they try to keep the prices high. You can get a rebate of maybe 10% with a lot of luck but never more. If you want festool stuff, I can help with shipping etc. if you want. But you need another cable plug for your us standard, but not a big problem you can solve the problem with a adapter.
I like the Rotex tools from festool because you can polish your car with them and also use them for woodwork or taking off the old paint from you mustang etc.It´s the only tool I know which really work for both things perfect. http://www.festool.de/Produkte/Seite...=ol_rotex_1600
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 it´s hard to become in germany ;-)
Maybe I can ship a container of german beer to the US and then all the people who want some beer put the money together for the beer container and buy me a perfect mustang fastback from the money and ship the container back with the car ;-)
Yes the windows ;-) I know everytime when I´m in the usa I really think that all the windows and doors are like 30-50 years ago here in germany, every normal house has these modern windows/ doors here. But the housebuilding in europe and usa is so different I think thats one of the biggest differences I noticed.
