And thus spoke David… but in this case it was Bob….Previous newsletter I cited several reasons why the dollar would revalue, whereas the euro would decrease further on. Meanwhile the European Central Bank came up with the vicious plan to buy up Treasury bonds at a ratio of 60 billion euro a month.
It puts pressure on the euro and therefore the euro seems to be collapsing the moment I write this text. Is this a good thing to happen ? About the half of our products still have to be paid in dollars. These products will definitely become more expensive. As a matter of fact the new price lists include a lot of increasing prices. However it’s beyond our will. It’s merely a matter of currency rate technical speaking.
What’s though important for us, is that our export to dollar countries has increased considerably at this moment. Nevertheless in Europe we’re doing a game of currency display of force and the end is not within sight…one dollar for one euro or even less that’s an obvious scenario, possibly it will be a fact the moment you read this newsletter.
But don’t spoil our favorite season : springtime by worrying about the price of parts. In comparison with other car makes Volkswagen parts are pretty cheap! There is another full calendar with meetings scheduled for 2015. The principal event will be in June, in particular on 18 June with our open house (do you come too?) and on 19 June when we go in convoy to the mother of all Volkswagen meetings : Bad Camberg.
A lot of sunshine, splendid weather and unforgettable trips with your Volkswagen. That are the things we wish you and with regard to the prices, we’ve just got to figure them in.
