Dear Hans;

When using "external" or "non-interactive graphics devices, you need to put the par call after the device is opened rather than before it. 

Try instead:

S=read.table("Sarrazin-2.5",as.is = default.stringsAsFactors())
# moved this call after the device opening call

plot(V3,V2,xlab=" ",ylab="BIP, rel. zu Deutschland", pch=16,xlim=c(630,930),ylim=c(95,135))
