    Could we have a register of dealers or VAG specialists that forum members have used and would recommend? I was thinking something along the lines of the current Google Map that shows members' locations, but for garages instead.

    Thats not a bad idea at all. Though you may end up with garages registering and recommending themselves I guess.

    You never can trust garages ;) Maybe each recommendation could be made to be required to have a post backing-up the recommendation, or you can only recommend if you've posted five times, or a mod has to approve them to ensure it's not spam.

    Could you not get the people who have Vag-com on this as well, there are always people asking for vagcom i certain areas of the country on the car forums!

    say if you got a columb with what type of vagcom they have, Canbus non-canbus, etc etc,

    Haha, not quite.

    I think you have proven by now that you like sticking your nose into lots of things on here Sarah, and of course the site sponsorship too.

    I was thinking more of random garages that just crop up and might just 'big up themselves'.

    Maybe a way round this is to for the garages in question to have a minimum no. of users recommending them, say 5 or 10 or something. All the good ones would have this no bother and it makes it to much like hard work for the un-known ones.

    Or am I just being paranoid????

    OK, I've created this on here: http://www.platial.com/nivagh/map/18572?IFRAMEMODE=true&style=3
    (It's a Google Earth mash-up site)
    I've made the map so that only I can edit it at present - if you have a garage to recommend, please send me the town, postcode and a short description of your experiences leading you to recommend it.
    I can't seem to work out at the moment how to allow specific users to add places to the map - it seems to be either just me or anybody at all, so hope you don't mind if I retain control at least for now, to avoid the possibility listed above that garages will vote for themselves!

    Please let me know what you think. :meeting:
