Just to say thanks for attending our "workshop" I am pleased to read that a few thought it was the best to date. For the next, I was thinking of doing a section on diagnosing CAN-Bus faults using an oscilloscope, what do you think? … Any other suggestions would be welcome. |
Thank you from Aftermarket

"Thank you for all your comments; I am really pleased that this event is working for you guys. Dave has asked for your input in reference to the technical presentations and I would like to do the same. We would welcome you comments on the day’s format and content and let the team at Aftermarket / GEA have your suggestions as to where you feel we can improve the workshop in 2009. |
Do you need a longer day?
Do you need more time to talk to each other, the sponsors and the speakers?
These were just two of the questions put to me on Monday.
We will be announcing next year’s venues and format shortly so your comments would be most appreciated. If you wish to direct them directly to us please send to email@example.com.
P.S. Aftermarket goes on tour in aid of BEN, OUR motor industry charity on Monday, 10 days 100 workshops from Lands End to John O’Groats, so keep your eyes peeled for Tom & Simon as they may turn up at your workshop uninvited!!
Once again thank you for your support.
One more thing – Mark B, forget Top Technician, how’s the anorak?"

Thank you for a good day on Monday, but in my opinion and a few others it could have been better. The anorak competition just seemed to waste valuable time (approx 1 hour +) which could have been used to ask the panel some more questions ( but well done Mark). |
The bosch tech talk, I think could have been more interesting, the other three were well done.
I think that a longer day would be better, say 9am to 6pm
The sponsors demos are a little basic and one in particular was more of how good we and our equipment is and how we have pioneered this and that (v tech). I think we all know that the equipment promises everything but very rarely delivers.
Who would change an AMM after checking powers and grounds then deciding that because the output is low it must be the AMM (come on bosch we know you can deliver better than that).
Asnu did a good talk, (a couple of comments anti diesel though).
Aftermarket Magazine session was the liveliest (well when the orange group were there) good debate (although one sided) on the merits or not of ATA and garage schemes (hopefully it can be sorted).
Good to meet you a last Peter,
It would be interesting to get uk autotalk members opinions on which way the ATA should be heading (to give it more value).
