I've seen the catalog at many newstands in Switzerland and Germany.
It's immediately recognizable because it always features a
scantily-clad woman romancing the male owner of a heavily-accessorized
car on the front cover.  I had thought it was essentially a German
version of the J.C. Whitney catalog, but it sounds like this is not
the case, and I'll certainly look at one when I go over there at the
end of August.
