Mohtaram c4capricorn Sahib c4capricorn,
Phaa Jee! It is not a matter of belief. It is pure science of engineering. Scientific facts are concrete. Neither you or I can change them! In my post # 16 I've explained in detail how AMG engines are assembled by technicians and not engineers. In the quality control department, engineers check the engines for any shortcomings. Our common 'Billa ustad' in Bilal Ganj can become an AMG technician of assembling engines after a crash course and that engine will be claimed to be 'hand-built.'
If you had been an engineer sir, you would have understood what I have been saying.
I would refer to the great Italian automotive engineer by the name of Etorre Bugatti who would hand craft his engines. He would manually scrape his engine blocks to such a perfection that no gaskets were required... WOW! That was before World War One sir. Now we have very powerful machines which assemble engines at Daimler Benz AG, BMW, VW, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mazda and they are called 'robots.' You can achieve higher tolerances if you do things by machines these days. In the past hand-assembled engines (wrongly called hand-built) achieved high tolerances but not any more in the 21st century where we can achieve higher tolerances through robots.
AMG engines assembled by hand which are wrongly claimed to be 'hand-built' have the nostalgia associated with master engineers like Etorre Bugatti. AMG engines have the pinache ('KASHKA') of Etorre Bugatti.
The fact is that today's engines assembled by robots are better than engines assembled by hand (wrongly called hand-build) because the former ones (machine-assembled) are engineered to higher tolerances as compared to latter ones (hand-assembled). This means that AMG should switch to robotic assembling of their engines because doing so will not only improve their quality but also bring down their cost! On the other hand, switching to machine assembling will erase away the nostalgia associated to them which is so much loved by their admirers!
Whatever you say or whatever I say, both of us can't change the facts sir, that is the beauty of science. Wikipedia is not a textbook of automotive engineering.
