BBS Declares War on Brand Pirates

Piracy knows no bounds. Whether it’s Sunglasses, Clothing or in this case Wheels, it seems that the marketplace is constantly flooded with counterfeit goods sold to unknowing (or willing in some cases) consumers for what is perceived to be a ‘good deal’. Aside from cutting into the profits companies use to develop new products, these goods are oftentimes poorly built and can cause damage to a company’s reputation or in the worst case scenario- physical harm to the end user. BBS is taking a stand against these fake wheels and their distributors, and has already put a stop to one internationally active ring of counterfeiters.

Find of the Day: 1984 Audi 4000S quattro in Portland, OR

by on 1 June 2012 in In Market

A clean and well-kept 4000 is hard to come by nowadays. These cars were driven hard and put away wet if put away at all. They were pre-galvanization so usually give way to rust, particularly around the taillights. Use on snowy and often salty conditions didn’t help matters, though that’s why no-salt areas like Portland, OR are rich in pristine survivors. We should know, we bought one there ourselves and part-drove and part-shipped it back to our Pennsylvania home office. More…
