2011 BMW M3 E92 By IND Distribution

I am not even going to try to sum up all the exterior upgrades IND made on this M3, but as you can see, they didn't hold back. The most obvious mods probably are the red Volk TE37 rims with those racy looking Falken tires and the Varis Japas GT wing. 

This extensive upgrading continues in the interior. Again it seems that what could be changed, has changed!  Steering wheel, doors, seats, even the shiftknob, everything changed! They even added some temperature and pressure gauges and a nice rollcage matching the rims.

2012 Honda Civic Si ready to be chopped

The Honda Civic has been one of the most widely tuned cars in the aftermarket and tuner industry. The Civic has always been such a tunable car, even for photoshop artists. That being said, I think its a great time now to have a go at the new Civic and start pushing the limits, once again. View and download more photos to chop at The Vault, in our forums.

BBS stated bankruptcy

 

It's not something new, they stated this situation back in 2007 too, but Punch International stood up with the cash they needed. This time however. things are a bit worse, even Punch Int. can't handle it no more. The statement was released on 30th of December, which shocked employers and their business partner IG Metal. 

There are some rumors that rival company Ronal is ready to buy BBS' Herbolzheim factory.

UPDATE: I found some statements on Autoblog of BBS officials explaining their situation:

Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 spec. by Reiter Engineering

The latest race-spec Gallardo developed by Lamborghini's motorsport partners at Reiter Engineering, the LP600+ is designed to GT3 regulations. Its 5.2-liter V10 has been tuned up to 600 metric horsepower (592hp by our count), joined with a retuned gearbox, competition aerodynamics package, rolling stock, suspension and more. With a curb weight trimmed to just 2,624 pounds and a 40mm ground clearance, the Reiter LP600+ promises to give the competition a run for their money with a relatively modest price tag (for a race-ready supercar, anyway) of €288,500 ($386k).
