Welcome to the new F&I website

Getting around:

In the absence of red and white flags, I hope no one gets lost while negotiating the new website. You can choose your own line…. everything is accessible from the menus across the top of the site, but you can also use the categories or archive lists to find content.


Advertising is free for members. Use the ‘Membership’ drop down menu and click on ‘Place an Ad’ to fill in the form.  See ‘Members Ads’ to view current adverts.

Signs of Resistance:

The website has been checked with the browsers Chrome, Safari and Firefox and on a laptop, iPad and an iPhone. It displayed correctly on all those during testing, but if you have different ‘facilities’, there’s a possibility the site will become crooked and there could be signs of disobedience! (in other words not display as it should!).

If you find a problem, please let me know. I’ll need to know what you’re using – whether it’s a computer, tablet, or smartphone and what type or make. Also, what browser.  I haven’t tested the site with Internet Explorer, so again, let me know if there are any issues.

To contact ‘Technical Support’ aka Sally, please use the ‘contact us’ page.
