Dear Member,

The first half of the year is complete, and over the last six months we have taken our member events to a new level with more people attending than in the last two years put together. We are now preparing for the second set of events which will start in September, dates to follow.

As you know we are never standing still and the new IGA website is now live, which you will find easier to navigate around than before. Have a look at www.IndependentGarageAssociation.co.uk and read more about it in the bulletin below. Please let us know your thoughts.

Our Technical Committee had its first meeting yesterday, looking at the challenges faced by independent garages when working on today’s cars. We are examining the finer details of access to technical information, Pass-Thru and security.

Phase 1 of Car Repair Plan is now complete and we have achieved national coverage of participating members. Phase 2 is now underway and we will start to promote the Car Repair Plan to consumers.

Finally, once again this year we are supporting automotive charity Ben by signing up to Bangers4Ben 2015. If you have a suitable ‘banger’ you would like to donate for the event which is roadworthy and capable of making it around Europe, please get in touch.

Best regards,


Stuart James
Director IGA
