sbreland73 You made it!  You've done a great job ofearning reputation from your peers.  You now have secret access to a new hidden forum!

I just want to chime in with one of those "Don't know how nice you have it!" - to Brad_m = while this won't help your cause, I do appreciate you sharing your experience with us all. It has helped me to be more grateful for what our government has done to help the independent shop survive. Good luck.

I know posting it here won't help us.
Some times you just need to have a whinge to any one who will listen.

Thanks to everyone for listening and for the comments too.


Seems as though I'm the only Australian here.
We should have an SO TechEd in my city in the next month or so.
I'm going to try and get some interst from the other shops here and ask the TechEd instructor to spread the word around.

Hi Brad,

I've heard about your troubles before, and that's what prompted me to respond. Over on the Autonerdz site there was a thread in the "Open Discussion" forum that included a number of your neighbors chatting about this very problem. Turns out I know very little of your frustration . Anyway, take a look. Maybe you could contact some of those 'blokes', and get something started.

I'm pretty sure you have to do the free registration process to read this, but those boys are a pleasure to talk with.

Euro car makers are obliged to give info by way of the Block Exemption Regulations but they will charge for it.

We use Shopkey/mitchel1 for our vehicles and when so don't have the info, we always call their tech support for more info. They always fax or email us back with info from the dealer manuals. I'm not sure if alldata does the same but you should try calling.

Late reply I know.

Shopkey, Mitchel, Alldata are not based on Australian delivered vehicles and we get cars that you guys don't.
