In this article we are going to go through how as an independent service centre you can gain access to these systems.
A lot of manufacturers have already switched to digital service records and you may think that only the main dealers can get access to and update these records. However this is not the case as independent garages can do this as well, although they don’t always make it easy!
Since the two brands are part of the same group you only have to register once. Once registered you will not only be able to view and update service records but for you also also see the vehicles specification including options fitted.
