Hailstorm damages up to 30,000 Volkswagens awaiting delivery

Those currently waiting for a new Volkswagen, take note: up to 30,000 brand new VeeDubs awaiting customer delivery have been damaged by hail near the VW factory in Emden, Germany. Reports indicate that the hail was ping-pong ball sized, which is certainly large enough to leave a nasty mark. Unfortunately, the naked eye cannot be relied upon to spot each minute piece of damage, so special workers have been brought in from around Germany to help inspect the vehicles under special lighting. Volkswagen, of course, assures its customers that no car will leave the premises with any damage whatsoever.
The expected cost for the large scale repair work has been estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars, so the German automaker is particularly thankful that it carries insurance for this particular act of God, and therefore shouldn't need to pay for any damage to the vehicles left outside. Thanks for the tip everyone!
