April 2017


The nicest season is coming and we’re ready, we already had  some sunbeams in Western Europe!  The sun makes you happy, certainly after these cold dark winter days…. Enjoy the sun to the full!

After a couple of years we can speak of a small revival on economic matters, even it is just frail, the unemployment figures are decreasing as well as the figures of poverty.  As we say it is still frail and fragile, but is always better something than nothing at all… Let’s hope the tendency will continue.  A strong economy is always a good thing for our niche market.

Our first (cyber) achievement for 2017 has been executed.  A new host has been set up, that’s quit a task and it wasn’t without problems. Our online parcels service got to deal with some nasty problems, but defects got monitored and restored. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.  Nowadays it’s back working very well… next step will be the introduction our new platform in April.  We’re very excited, at this very moment not less than 9 different IT companies are working for us. That’s quit huge for a SME, I should think so.  The cyber world has become a normal part of our daily life and that count’s for BBT as well, though that should go well together... ;-) To be continued…

At the end of June we’ll have our huge open house, bigger than ever. Followed the next day by our famous convoy to the Vintage meeting of Hessisch Oldendorf in Germany.  You’re all welcome, of course.  All information can be found here.

The week after there will be the greatest VW nostalgia meeting that you can imagine with the European Bug In at Chimay (yes, the town of  the  famous trappist beer) and we’ll be present there too.

We wish you a nice spring season, enjoy the sun and nature’s fresh green… we’re looking forward to the next months to come…

Keep the VW faith!

When prices go ridiculous for used parts we, at BBT, try to step up and bring  a good reproduction on the market.
