You’re the coolest!

Since September, we’ve been searching for the coolest workshop on the planet. You entered the battle for the title by submitting your workshop photos. And now, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. Read on to find out who the lucky winner of the tuned air conditioning service unit is. And second and third place don’t go away empty-handed, either.

And the winner is ...

... the training workshop at the BBS 1 Uelzen vocational school!

1. First place

Uwe Moldenhauer, master vehicle technician and on-the-job training instructor at BBS 1 Uelzen, is training supervisor for exhaust emissions testing and air conditioning systems, as well as high-voltage technology. He submitted the contest entry for his training workshop with the following words: “The students at our one-year professional vocational school for automotive engineering are AMPED UP! Amped up for input, amped up for everything that involves moving parts, and amped up for anything to do with cars! With any luck, our amped-up boys will be voted the coolest and can soon launch their professional careers with even more expertise under their belts.”

We think it’s awesome that a teacher considers his students to be the coolest “up-and-coming” mechanics. MAHLE also places great value on a comprehensive, high-quality apprenticeship. And that’s why the MPULSE jury has decided to award first place in the competition to the training workshop at BBS 1 Uelzen. We’re sure that our tuned service unit will add lots of fun and variety to the daily lesson plan thanks to its special features and technical performance.

So, we would like to congratulate you on winning the title of “Coolest (Training) Workshop” and scoring first place!

This tuned ACX 150 model is a real one of a kind: unrivalled anywhere in the world, thanks to its underbody lighting, engine noise, rims, and countless other features. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. And it’s all yours to enjoy!

  • First place: A pimped-out ACX 150 air conditioning service unit with lots of special features from MAHLE...

And now, on to second and third place in the competition!

Hard work deserves to be rewarded
