Members who have a special skill...advice given?

Post by gsal » Wed Oct 14, 2015 8:12 pm

I am new to the forum and keep asking questions and unable to give anything back. I was thinking if we have a section that some members can give other members advice on all things, not necessarily BMW's to help each other out.
I am a white goods engineer with gas skill so if anyone on here wants some advice please feel free to message me on all things to do with domestic appliances.
Cheers Gary.

I'm also a white goods engineer. In the trade for over thirty years now.

We usually answer and help through the "Off Topic" section of the forum.

I've been in the trade nearly thirty years!,,,got the knees to prove it!.
Just thought if we had a section with specific skills would be helpful and hopefully cost us all a little less.
