Looking at Evilution, there seems to be a lack of indie's in your area.

I know Roadie2003 on this forum uses Smart of York .. It maybe worth giving them a call to see how much they will charge for diags ... they might be £45 as per Lakeside .. Also, check your yellow pages for Local Merc Specialists. If they have a STAR machine, they can take a look for you, but might not be able to fix .. :(

i have heard good things about smart of york providing you're able to get your car there

if your covered for recovery to a garage of your choice through the AA etc then you would probably be better getting it towed to a indie as the difference in price would probably cover your costs to collect the car

Hi Ami 1,
We live in Shipley and both or our Fortwo's are serviced by Smart of Leeds. They do a good job but like all main agents are a bit pricey.
I suppose you have already tried Mercedes-Benz Harrogate on the way to Leeds. I was impressed by thier reception but haven't needed to try them yet. The other option, and one my son is considering, is a day trip to Smarts-R-Us in Nottingham but this is 80 miles away.
A local garage has said he will service my car but I don't think he has the diagnostic software.
I did ring independant Merc specialists in Skipton and Pudsey but they don't want to know about Smarts.
I would definatly be interested if there is an indie closer to home.

Well were here!
and we rock!

Whats up with your car? i mean, theres a wealth of knowledge here, is it a service, or like an issue/problem?
whatever it is, chances are SOMEONE on here usually evilution) will have had it happen to them, or someone they know!
DAFT is just a meet for northern monkeys... i dunno where it is, cos im too scared to go north of bristol... im sure one of that lot will be along to gives you more details :)
