    Is it allowed?

    I've just had a lot of restoration works completed on my UK spec and the car looks fantastic.
    I'm going to post a written summary of the works, plus some photos.
    The garage isn't an Official Club Business, so am I allowed to mention them by name?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Yes of course mate. Traders pay a fee to advertise services etc. There's no reason you can't post up your experience of another trader, it's a members forum after all!

    Thanks Greg.
    I don't want to break any club rules.
    Following your advice, I now have Agreed Value Insurance through Adrian Flux. Thanks for that too.

    It's fine as long as you're not posting as a representative of the company in question. That would be advertising. If you're simply a happy customer then fill ya boots!

    Lol ....Greg.
    The garage are posting the report on my behalf, as I'm rubbish on the computer.
    It should be done next week, some time.

    That's OK Mike, I wasn't even sure you had received my P/M, as it wasn't shown in my sent messages area.

    Hangon, if the garage are posting the report for you is this not advertising in some form?

    It's all advertising in some form......it's always a contentious issue, Arpus is obviously more than happy with the work done and wants to show it and give credit to those that carried out the work. I have no issue with a detailed write up from any source as long as Arpus backs it up, although it would look better coming from him, to stop any ambiguity.

    If you are a trader you could look at this specific thread in two ways.

    1) they do what I do, they don't pay towards the forum they don't deserve any airtime/free advertising

    2) they do what I do, but are the other end of the country and Arpus chose them partly because they were closer, I doubt I will lose customers to this lot, in fact more of these restoration/clean up threads might encourage others that are local to me to get theirs done.

    2) might be a reach, but is 1) really that bad for business? I just want to see forum traffic and positive and interesting owner stories, but I appreciate behind the scenes there is a trader paying for advertising and a degree of forum exclusivity and that these recommendation threads can cause them to question that.
    Number 8 ...........doing my best to keep
    Number 9 ........been and gone!
    Number 10 ........on its way

    Agree , if Arpus is posting his own stuff and not making an advert for his mates garage to "help them out" get them further work?
    I`m not a trader but know a few that are paying good money for their ads on the forum,
    Guess we`ll have to see how the thread turns out then.
