Favourite system and why.

There is a problem with using lots of different brands, engineers have to know how to program lots of panels.

No one can know all about all brands, I'd say a company can train and support a few well, all less so. Specialise in a few, train and know the products well. Much like cars you wouldn't take your merc to Hyundai garage

I bet you were climbing the ceilings by the end of it.

 

I spent a nice afternoon in Merc a few months back only 2 Lattes. I managed to plug my laptop in and get more work done than I normally would at the office, their setup is far better than Jags I do miss my Jag though

I was only climbing the ceiling because it took them 3hrs to do a 30 minute job. 

 

I booked a waiting appointment for the fuel cap solenoid to be changed (20 min job as I'd already removed the inner side panel for them) told it would take 30 mins and I could wait. 

 

3 hours it took them, worse places to sit and wait I guess but I won't be funding the fancy showroom and free cafe menu for anything outside of the warranty.

My last one was similar, JW said you should always ask for a courtesy car because they will fix your car much quicker. It took them 2 days to find a blown fuse, while I drove around in a poxy A Class, there are only so many handbrake turns you can do in Asdas carpark before it gets boring. Thats the last time I listen to JW

I had a loaner q5 when they "diagnosed" it, even though the Mrs diagnosed it within 30 seconds of me telling her. 

 

I had a 5 week wait for the courtesy car so even though I wasn't in a rush to fix it I just couldn't be arsed. 

 

Very nice 'experience' better than the BMW garage and much nicer totty, looking round in the 3 hours I was there, there wasn't a bird working there I wouldn't smash.

I'm sure jw's spent enough in his local stealer to have had one gifted. 

 

He probably has the cufflinks too.
