just-auto is taking the customary seasonal holiday and today’s daily newsletter will be the last one for a short while as the office shuts down for the annual Christmas and New Year celebrations.

We will be back at our desks, bright eyed and bushy tailed, on Wednesday, 2 January, 2013.

The editorial team and management of our parent company Aroq would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
