VAG are doubtless only looking to aquire businesses they can make more profit from, BBS isnt really one of them, in todays climate people who can afford to pay 250 quid for one wheel without a tyre on it are getting less and less common. BBS have always been at the high end pricewise and admittedly they make a good enough product to warrant it, alloys are however a luxury and who isnt cutting back on those these days.
plus they are a one time buy. You dont need more than one set, you spend that kinda money on wheels once or twice, not every year.
