Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Great! that makes a HUGE difference. Soooo now I see why you made the choices you made for your schools.
First thing I would recommend: Drop LBS. It's really far more of a finance place, than an industry one, and I think it would be a bit of a stretch for you, anyhow, so better to concentrate your energies elsewhere. Besides the schools you listed you might look into IMD also which has very strong industry connections and is very good for older students such as yourself.
Otherwise, I noticed you were interested in Mannheim.. if Germany is a goal for you (and given the importance of the Auto industry and your experience this makes sense) there are a few other schools in Germany that although not necessarily highly ranked outside Germany, can help you get where you want to in Germany: WHU, Leipzig, Frankfurt (more for finance as you would imagine) and ESMT.
Otherwise I think Sloan and INSEAD will be challenges for you (although you should still apply and give your shot). You have good work experience in a good industry, but come from a tough pool, and the experience is not superstar experience either, so those schools will be tougher. Otherwise, I think if you apply to all the schools on your list (or most) plus add a second and/or third German school, you might come away with some positive results.
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, just drop a line,
Wow! What a truly amazing GMAT! That will help you a lot dude.
Now, I would love to help you out regarding suggesting which schools for you to apply to, but I need some more info from you first! It's a bit hard for me to tell you exactly where you can get into because I am missing information from you. Can you write me back with the following info:
1. Exactly what your position is, how your performance is, whether you have any leadership experience, how many promotions you have had, what extra curricular experience you have, what volunteer work you have.
2. Can you elaborate on what your goals are - what are your short and long term goals? Why do you want to go to business school?
If you can give me some more info, I can help you better.
Have a look also at several fuller profile requests in this forum, it will give you a better idea of just how detailed you can get.
Looking forward to hearing from you, my friend.
