Not techs job to tell customer the prices its the reception staff.

Re: Official Fiat Presence on this site

Im pretty sure Fiat UK are keeping an eye on this forum! Its too big to ignor and i bet they do take our comments into consideration.

As for Dealerships, i had very bad experiences with Reg Vardy, Leicester (now closed) however i cant "big up" the Research Fiat Dealership in Nuneaton, fantastic service, friendly and even shows you the problem so you can fix them yourself should something need fixing again.

Re: Official Fiat Presence on this site

My local reg vardy fiat dealership was very intrigued by the forum and would take a look every now and again especially on the GP bit as they were a bit short of info on it at the time

Re: Official Fiat Presence on this site

My local Fiat dealers...well, its shut down thank god. Parts and service were possibly the biggest heap of...yeah.

Blackburn Fiat on the other hand - some 55miles away are possibly the best dealership Ive ever dealt with.

Not that Id ever entrust my car to a dealership. Im not gonna pay full whack for a technician to look over my car, when it trains me as an engineer to do it myself and costs nothing!

If Fiat do monitor this site...they should speak up

Re: Official Fiat Presence on this site

Anyone guess the band (or song) lyrics below...cream doughnut for the winner!

"Spying, lying, there's no denying
You can't escape, just be discreet
Computers are abused, school records are fed
Police are checking on what you've said
The number of your car's fed into a box
Your journey's being checked, it's a paradox"












....mmmmm that doughut was nice ........well lets face it you were never gonna get the answer anyway

Re: Official Fiat Presence on this site

Hawkwind

Every time I go out,
I think I'm being checked out
Faceless people watching on a TV screen
Do you begin to sense it,
Just beneath the surface
Reflections off a window
Whilst walking down the street
Spying, lying, there's no denying
You can't escape, just be discreet

Computers are abused,
School records are fed
Police are checking on what you've said
The number of your car's fed into a box
Your journey's being checked,
It's a paradox


Duplicate forms and ID cards,
Are next in line to disregard
Future generations are relying on us
It's a world we've made - incubus
We're processed, we're processed,
We're processed
