    No.

    If you are unable to come to a resolution with a good friend using normal methods, it's all over, and bringing someone else in would only make it worse IMO.

    I agree.

    By the time you need an external arbitrator, the trust and mutual respect is gone, and that genie can't be put back in the bottle .

    I've seen this happen in quite a few times. Friends get together, start a business, at some point there is a dispute and then it all turns to .......

    Typically its about money or how much they are contributing to the business, both think they are right, and usually they fight until their's nothing left... for anyone.

    Well, if I found myself in an awkward position with a friend, I'd rather go down the arbitration route and know either I'm right or wrong and see what happens. The worst thing is that at least you end up with resolution. There's no point in a yelling match or a physical altercation.

    At best, the friend who's "wrong" for want of a better word, might at least see the error of their judgement and things might work out ok.....especially if the arbitrator articulates their thought on how they reach their decision.

    I'm NEVER wrong, so an arbitrator can only just be ANOTHER wrong person :)

    I think this whole hypothetical scenario is just a way for PP to figure how he can kiss and make up with FF without losing face. Mind you with a face like that he should like to lose it. lol

    Understandable. ****box wont even start. Can't be JMs fault as he says he is never wrong, so it must be the car. Maybe JM and FF can do a class action against PP?

    oh look....a gutless turd rears his ugly head!!

    Weren't you permabanned?

    I think anyone pretending to be someone they're not is a gutless turd, so don't take it personally.

    Doesn't sound like 'real' friend to me. Real friend would trust you enough to believe that indicators aren't connected to tuning (or whatever else it was you did). Doesn't seem to appreciate what you HAVE done for them, just criticising a perceived fault. I'd let it go.
