Thanks so much, we're half way there now.Just added the other independent MoT test centres I've used and would recommend.
I also do my own servicing (except when my OBDII reader wouldn't work...), and have never been to a FIAT specialist, so afraid I can't be of any further help.
The (ex-Lancia works and Citroen factory) mechanics I used to turn to for help have retired. Can't say I blame them.
Sadly I can't convert posts to reviews, so please post it in the directoryI always get the 500c serviced by;
The Owner Greg is a lovely chap and he’s done pretty well all the jobs you need to do to keep a 12 year old 500 on the road.
Last week I got him to replace the front struts.
We've had the garages forum since forever and while I do sometimes get requests to take posts down, if the post looks genuine I'll leave it.but if somebody gives a garage a complete roasting, it could leave the forum in hot water if the garage concerned comes after you.
Ben,It's Friday, the weekend is nearly here and you're bored at work - great!
Then can I just ask for a minute of your time?
I've been working on a dealership/garage directory type system for the forum, basically like a Google Maps review thing, but in-house, so it's going to be a lot more relevant to us all.
I think I'm done with the code, but need you guys to test it - which will 1) help me and 2) help everyone else, as we'll get some businesses in there!
Everyone here has (probably) used a garage in the last year, so if you can write me a short review of it that would be great!
So what I need you to do is this (pretty please).
If all works, that should have created the garage and added your review. If the garage already existed, it should have just added your review!
- Head over to the business directory.
- Click the Add Item button.
- Select the type of garage it is (independent or dealership)
- On the next page, type in the name of it and Google should automatically find it

- Click it and check on the map that it's the correct one - if so, click the "save" button.
- If everything worked correctly, you should now be forwarded to the add review page

- Fill it in and hit submit!
Everything should then get added to the map, so over time we'll have an awesome way to find forum member recommended places! Hurrah!
We'll test this over the next week or so (so I'll push it a bit more) - then if all is working, release it properly (link the header etc!)
Not at all mate, I'm really grateful you added it - the more people add (wherever in the world) the more useful the directory becomesBen,
I wrote a review on my local Fiat dealer, in order to provide some favourable feedback on your new feature. I had intended to delete the review, but this is apparently not possible. The garage is very competent and friendly, but is nowhere close to most forum members and they don't speak a word of English.
If you think that the review is unhelpful or inappropriate, you can delete it.
