Just read this on the forum. My 1995 993 is in having its engine loom done now! Can't believe that previous main dealers who had serviced it at the time of the recall hadn't done it! It's something I didn't even know about - being someone who lacks in depth knowledge of everything 993.


OPC at Towcester, were very helpful recently in confirming my car didn't have any outstanding factory recalls.

All done efficently by email.

Just picked up a 1994 Hamburg car - black on black.
Sent the mail to Porsche Brooklands - let's hear what they say.
My 964 had also been with an OPC for many years (as has this one) and had a steering column recall and some other elec issue to not yet done by the OPC.

Thanks to the OP for the advice!

Recently bought another 993, a high mileage early tiptronic, obviously a glutton for punishment, and was advised by 2+2 it needed the wiring loom recall. Sutton Coldfield OPC collected it and returned it within the day. I missed a trick though, could have had the courtesy car for the day. Fabulous old beast. Smile

Cool widget.

As my car has been serviced by OPC, I assume if it had required any, they would have gladly offered to fix them all for free (and bill Porsche AG).

But in any case, that page has offered a little bit of happiness today via a notice of no outstanding recalls.

My 1995 Tip is going in for the loom in August for 3-5 days, as they need to take the engine out. It was checked last week when I had an oil and brake fluid change. Cardiff OPC.

Is there anything else I should get them to do at the same time?

cheers

Mark
