Thus, “extra” now has participants in 19 countries and so far 50 000 workshops all over Europe have registered for the reward system.

In Germany, “extra” has in the meantime become the largest reward system in the workshop area.

In August 2013, the Motul Deutschland GmbH with its broad range of lubricants, care and cleaning products joined as well. Since September 2013, the workshops can also collect “extra” points with the brands Spidan and Löbro by the GKN Service International GmbH and as of September 2014 also the Westfalia-Automotive GmbH with its tow bar and carrier system products will become new partners.
