Hi Karsten,
  Yes it's Bjoern (I don't like useing the "e", it's amusing enough when
people have to read it off of a list or something any way ;) ).  Sorry
to take so long to respond, I was off line for a while :( , but I'm
feeling much better now <g>.  $29,000 for a Passat, I think I'd put a
couple in my pockets and resell them here ;).  Some things are much more
expensive in Germany than here (cloths for exanple) but some things are
less (The examples I was thinking of were Marklin model train supplies
(that was many years ago when I was a kid) and last year I replaced a
"swiss army" knife.  I guess it depends on the product.  Who knows about
Dupla.  I'll check when I go and send the results.

I remeber one year when the exchange was $1-3DM, what a shoping trip!

Hi Paul,
  I have no idea how or why I sent that post twice. Sorry about that.  I
think that its time to do both (ie one with HCl and one with HNO3) and
see what happens.
