    Mercedes-Benz is using a new identifikation system in the prodcution sequence for the new SL. Each body shell carries a micro-chip on the radiator cross-member, which has been programmed with all individual data of the car, and is independently connected with the stations.
    The robot used in the body shell section is thus informed, for example, of how many bolts must be welded in accordance with the ordered optional fittings. More bolts must be used for cars with ASR or the new adaptive damping system (ADS) to fasten the additional cables and ducts than for a standard production car.
