Sure, it's always sad to see someone fail in business. A lot of people get hurt in the process, and the stresses imposed on the families is incredible. But in all fairness, to blame the entire thing on the economy is tough for me to swallow. Over the years, BG's products have received as many poor reviews as raving ones. Maybe even moreso. One has to believe that if a better product was offered, they may have had better success. Many other automotive aftermarket companies have weathered the storm successfully. In business, especially in a specialty segment, you have to provide a top notch product combined with impecable customer service to succeed.

My 2c.
