Hi Paul,

Sorry for any problems you might be having. However, when I look into your case I see that all the other businesses with 20 miles of you are also listed under Auto Repair Shop, Car Dealer or RV Dealer. I have seen Autohaus as an approved category for MyBusiness listings in the past so it may be worthwhile to reach out to the Help Center

Hallo Paul

nimm einfach "Audi-Händler"


Du kannst nur noch solche Kategorien benutzen, die hier gelistet sind:



Was andere Autohaeuser in frueheren Zeiten konnten geht jetzt auch fuer diese Autohaeuser  nicht mehr (jedenfalls nicht, wenn die ihren Eintrag ueberarbeiten oder erneut erstellen wollten).
