About Buchmann

Based in the heart of the European stock market flourish of the Seventies and Eighties, Rainer Buchmann and his b+b Auto-Exclusiv-Service was perfectly placed to cash-in on the growing number of sports car owners looking for something that little bit different. Frankfurt was bustling with new millionaires - and Buchmann's garage was doing superb business.

b+b Auto-Exclusiv-Service

Buchmann was a small company based in Frankfurt, Germany. The company, spearheaded by Rainer Buchmann, an accomplished mechanic, specialised in enhancing performance automobiles, such as Porsche's 911, 928 and 924, and the Mercedes S-Class. Buchmann launched the company with his brother, Dieter, giving the b+b tag. Tuning programmes were also released for more run-of-the-mill cars, such as the Volkswagen Golf and Polo, and Volvo's 240 Estate car.

The company was launched in the mid-1970s, when demand for modified luxury cars was at its highest. As Buchmann found, collectors, enthusiasts and normal customers were willing to pay for a series of special tweaks to make their car stand out from the norm. Buchmann, with his 'b+b Auto Exclusiv Service', traded on Germanic efficiency and teutonic build quality to deliver some truly breathtaking motorcars. Buchmann delivered many firsts for the car modification world - he, and his highly trained team of mechanics and bodywork specialists, could mould together 'hybrids', taking styling cues from a number of different models and bringing them together into the one, and could place sophisticated electronics into the tight confines of sports cars - for example, colour televisions, CB radios, gold plated switchgear, stereos with graphic equalisers and even fridges into their cars.

Buchmann and his mechanics were forward-thinking and ambitious - and this shines through with some of their projects. For example, a special, based on the 1978 Mercedes W-126 S-Class featured an electrically folding steel roof - a first for the modern era. The bodyworkers pioneered the use of new, as-yet-untested plastics, for areas such as bumpers, and new paint finishes to create some stunning (and equally, some dreadful) versions of normal cars. The company became a byword for interior fittings, and the first 'real' Buchmann Porsche, called the (deep breath) b+b Porsche 911/30/28 Targa, featured the televisions and stereos which had become the norm, but also a refrigerated champagne cooler fitted under liftable gold metallic leather rear seats.

Basic Information About Full Coverage Auto Insurance

Full coverage is a common term used in car insurance. However, it has many different meanings to many different people. This is because full coverage auto insurance depends on the needs and requirements of the person buying it. In addition, not all insurance companies have the same rules when it comes to the actual coverage it includes. It is not a “buy-1-take-all” kind of insurance policy. The coverage it includes may still vary, and if it is your first time to buy auto insurance, you need to know the basic terms used.
