    Hi,
    Just wanted to ask you guys what is a good reputable Indy in the East London area for servicing? Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    I doubt you will find anyone honest in the East end these days, probably hard to even find someone that speaks English.

    Not sure about London but we do seem to have some members Kent and Essex way. Maybe try posting in Regional LZ you may get some more helpful answers.

    I was born in the East End. I went back a while ago to look at where I used to live, it was like a foreign country. I don't know what Woolwich is like now, I used to enjoy the ferry and the tunnel, but Wanstead, Manor Park, East Ham, Leytonstone, Mile End etc seem to have few indigenous English left. certainly I felt out of place.
    I prefer my isolated ruin in France.

    They say the past "is another country, they do things differently there", and they are not wrong ....

    Didn't you know....... the only immigrants/foreigners are those daring to settle in England. English settling in other countries aren't immigrants or foreigners in those countries. They are merely ex-pats :rolleyes:;)

    I've had the privilege of living and working in a few foreign countries, I never felt uncomfortable even in West Africa where I made a few good friends among the locals. I certainly felt uncomfortable in my old home area.

    I'm an immigrant in France and unlike many of the immigrants in the UK I have made the effort to integrate.

    When we used to go and see my Nana and Ganda, who lived 'over there', we took the Ferry to the North side and then the 101 bus to East Ham Town Hall .... all the world used that bus route, it was great ... being little and a bit cute everyone thought it was super to talk to me ... I still love London ...

    'Many' ... you don't get far in the UK by not integrating ... so you may have had a biased view ...

    A very interesting view , through your proculars. For every immigrant that doesn't integrate there are not only thousands who do, but most likely a story behind it.
    Sorry Datatek but I cannot stand those who move to another country and then insist on telling those of us living here, how things are.

    Not been to Birmingham, Bradford, Tower Hamlets etc then? The Muslims communities there live for the most part entirely separate lives even to the extent of having sharia courts.
    There is a similar problem in parts of France, however the government take a much stronger line, Muslim religious schools for example are controlled in the same way as other schools unlike the UK and the Burqua is banned.
    You must tell me where you get your rose coloured spectacles.
    I have family in the UK, so I take an interest and I'm in France because my wife is French and she needs to be here for her handicapped son.

    The 101 ran past the end of my road, occasionally it went to Lambourne End in summer which was a real day out treat for us. No family car in those days.

    This is the main reason I usually choose not to interact with you or read your posts that are not technical. You are one of the most negative, down on everything, that isn't you or yours , people I have ever come across. There is rarely a post from you that does not knock anything you are not, do not own or do not understand.
    Whilst your technical posts are very informative and usually helpful, you as a person come across as nothing but miserable. Please have a lovely day and respond as you wish, however I am going back to ignoring all but your technical posts, as you suck the life out of everything else.
