>From a news service I s*bscribe to:

** Ending one of the most bitter fights in corporate history,
automakers VOLKSWAGEN and GENERAL MOTORS (GM: 59-7/8, + 5/8) late
Thursday reached an out-of-court settlement of alleged industrial
espionage by executives who quit GM to join VW. In exchange for GM
dropping its U.S. racketeering lawsuit against Volkswagen, the
German automaker agreed to pay $100 million to GM and committed to
purchasing $1 billion worth of GM auto parts over the next seven
years. For the full text story, see

So... Where will all those GM parts show up?
