BBT News

Its friday again, and friday means NEWS time. Plenty of news again, but still the wild fires in Australia are taking more from our feelings away as stupid quotes from Mr Trump or Mr Johnson, nevertheless Johnson seems on the win in the new Brexit elections. The path is now that nobody wants out, and nobody likes to stay in anymore. Seems like many Brits are happy with the current Brexit status that “we will go out one day”, uh… weird folks… If they vote Johnson they will go out for sure, if they vote Corbyn there is a change they stay.. why don’t You stay British friends? Together we’re way stronger as on our own, we all know that, don’t we?

Well anyway, new products came in on our shelves this week, and they’re here defenitely to stay.

All to help to build a better and more accurate Volkswagen world.

The only reason we’re here for….

Finally we have the correct seal between glass and frame for beetle vent wings .
We preformed this seal and is so much better as our economical BBT ref 0342 roll.

We finally got our good German made brake shoes in stock again.

We still believe we supply the very best brake shoe that’s currently on the market on a very competitive price.

Why? Simpel because ours brake shoes are really Made in Germany (not only packed as others), we use high-grade of brake lining and “brake in” EVERY shoe before packing. So we guarantee our shoes are in perfect radius of your brake drum as per original Volkswagen specs.

Nobody can beat that…
