    I was thinking to myself, "I heard this before" when I read it:

    This isn’t the first time that BBS has undergone financial turmoil. In 2007, the company also filed for bankruptcy, and managed to pull through. This time, it appears that the company’s precarious situation got the better of it, although partner company IG Metall was apparently planning a large investment in BBS just before the filing.
    The name is too well known to just let go so something or someone will scoop it up or the parent company will invest.

    Remember when they had contracts with some manufacturers to put wheels on certain models? That was lucrative for them and subsided within the last few years.

    I read an article that the economy finally caught up the German aftermarket manufacturers and they are now hurting, badly: http://www.roadandtrack.com/column/g...ers-in-trouble
