Well, I am now booking into the third week of September ! Around here we have just lost a Mitsubishi/Fiat dealership, the local ford main dealer group is now making 13 redundant, I think it is the big players with £100 /hour plus labour rates that are suffering to the independants advantage.One of my reps was in yesterday who I do work for wanted a cambelt done on her 2001 Clio 16V, told her it would be back end of September before I could get it in so she got a dealer quote, £700 !!, needless to say she is going to take it gentle until I can do it in 7 weeks time, the dealers have cut their own throats and are now suffering.
