Can anybody please tell me, for the love of all that's holy, why the LandyOnline workshop closed down? Predtave - perhaps you have some inside info? And can they not at least PLEASE refer us DESPERATE Roodepoort and Krugerdsorp inhabitants of worthwhile local West Rand Indie? I am well and truly GATVOL with all the LR "specialists" out there that don't even know that the Disco 4 V8 has a 5.0 litre as opposed to the 3's 4.4 litre.

Cant help , sorry. This forum i actually virtually independant of the business side. It is simply web space that has been set aside by Landyonline for Landy owners to chat . My role is simply to see that members behave acceptably and to regularly delete spam ...

Thanks for the courtesy of a reply Dave. I am just really quite puzzled as to why a reputable and thriving Indie would close their doors. Perhaps they, in turn, became GATVOL of some customers?

This is pure speculation on my part - I suspect that for many entrepreneurs the social/labour climate in the country today must be very unpleasant . To the extent that many businessmen are tempted to simply close the doors...

Tell me about it Dave. As the owner of my own business I am tempted just about every 6 months to closed down. I'm sure many guys on the forum with their own businesses will agree that South African's (including corporate companies) have no clue what "terms - strictly payable within 30 days" means. Then they have the cheek to get ever more demanding. Well, that's life I suppose.
