German term or phrase: Rohbau / ZMS / NAG
Unfortunately, there is little context available. The terms are from a laundry list of items that go into the construction of a passenger car with their respective weights.
Specifically, they are
--Rohbau
--Motor incl. ZMS
--Getriebe (NAG mit Wandler,Öl, Schaltung)

Explanation:
The "Rohbau" can be called the motor block (without any extras).

Motor block with ZMS transmission.
ZMS is the type of transmission but I don't think that it should be translated in case it is a company name. I would definately include this in your translators notes.

NAG is an automatic transmission.
(Automatic transmission with converter, oil and gears).

Hope this helps.
