The World championship soccer kicked off in Qatar.

Should a soccer championship be a platform to make political statements?
Or should sport stand above that discussion?

Not an easy game to play.

Nothing to see with soccer as our “GOAL” is to make your VW world a better one.
This week we enter an extra line of engine bearings, for you to choose from …. without penalties.

BBT is adding Silverline engine bearings to our program!
We complete our VW engine bearing line and also added the Silverline brand.

Together with Mahle, Sintermetal and Kolbenschmidt bearings we now have the most comprehensive line of engine bearings on the market.
Our direct imports guarantee very sharp pricing.



The brand new BBT engine bearing tables will guide you for easy search to the correct engine bearings for your engine.

With the midterm elections America voted different as expected.
So different even Mr. Donald Trump put himself back as candidate for President 2024.

Looking forward how that will end after he kind a lost last three elections.
Like a rocket up or down perhaps?

About rockets, a Russian missile not launched by Russia landed on NATO country Poland.
That is weird and gave high tension.

Investigation is not open to everybody, only to selected few…
It was “not intended” and “an accident” or “mistake.”

If that is true, we can only thank God for that.
If it is not what would be the truth?

Is anybody waiting on an escalation? Not us for sure!
BBT News hereby might not be a missile, but investigation is open to all, feel free to join….

BBT’s rocket launch this week of our brand-new side gates for your split window double cab pick-up truck!

Did you trick or treat?
Halloween is like an entry of the extended holiday season, Thanksgiving is coming up, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, St Maarten, St Nicolas, X-Mas, New Year, all consumption related holidays. Man can ask if we get only ”get off” to spend money, right?

Consumption is a problem, both good and bad.
Without consumption no or little economy, but also no landfills and no waste of energy…
It’s a double feeling, are you doing good? Or doing bad? Most importantly, reading this, you’re aware, that’s a good start.

Another good start for an answer to that question is durability. Of course we have to spend money and let the world running. But maybe we should think more about durable goods, goods that stand….
What is more durable than classic cars? They’re here to stay, don’t get recycled anymore. The few that will get lost from here will be donor cars for others.

Also reproduction parts, if chosen right, can be an addition to let survive your classic ride. So reproduction parts can be considered durable in most cases, if they’re the quality that your car desires.
We, @ BBT, are working continuously to make our parts better, the many feedback swe receive we use them well.

Think about durable goods when you have to buy presents for your beloved ones, keep it durable and help our planet… our kids will need a livable planet as well.
