Hi Nigel, WD don't provide a courtesy car, but given the repair was being done by OPC, they do as usual. Makes no odds to them that the repair is being covered by WD other than WD require them to send in the details and cost before the work starts for approval. Yes, WD requires an inspection, it's not as thorough as a Porsche 111, costs £70. They also need to see full service history and MOT.

Another claim with Warranty Direct. Despite geos by indie and OPC I wasn't happy so went to center gravity. Their road test and detailed suspension examination revealed a leaking rear damper, delaminated bushes in both rear coffin arms, a shot front inner rod end and the geo was out.

CG talked the claims engineer through their findings and the cost of Porsche dampers, coffin arms, inner rod end, labour and geo. I can imagine many warranties would class these issues as wear and tear and not cover them, but WD approved (except the rear damper that wasn't leaking, which I chose to replace anyway) and reimbursed me soon after I sent the invoice in.

My 2 pennys ..

T8 .. keep your warrenty , i dont think ive ever known anyone to have as much done as you have Very Happy .. excellent service from your OPC .

I wouldn,t own a Porsche Without a Porsche warrenty ( too poor but if i did lol ) .

The only downside is when they switched to wear and tear so that now the older a part is the more likley it wont be covered ..

Anything on exhausts for example .. or a/c condensors that used to be covered now have to be removed and inspected for any damage so they can be rejected .

Over all though .. i would pay for it .

OPC experience over Indy ...

Theres good and bad for both so its kinda a mute question .. i switched but left behind some very experienced collegues and friends .

My Indy also has some very experienced mechanics .. so in our area both are good .

Reguards prices ..

Ive watched a lot of cars go up in value .. i feel the reason is the economy .. i think once interest rates start riseing the price of cars is going to drop .. its artificially high imho .

Very interesting to hear. I have an OPC warranty which runs out in July. Having changed the PCM2.1 to a pioneer unit, in theory I won't be ale to extend the warranty! So, interested to hear people experiences over the next 6 months or so with WD please.

cheers

Fairplay mja911 ,your successful wd claims are impressive. And now you have an even healthier car as a result Thumb

i know its down to your due dilligence and especially your email trail that has won the day. Any salesman can give you any old b8llox over the phone or even face to face but when its in writing ...

Well done

Haha, hope the car settles down now Andy and not have more gremlins for a while, it's becoming embarrassing. Glad you got though the 111 to get on the OPC warranty, nice move for the, lets say, more mature 997.1! Sorry my moll battery was no help, owe you a beer Duh

Michael it was decent of you to try and help me out of my moll holl. Thank you once again

There is no embarassment when a car needs reparing.

Yeah i went for 2 years opc warranty paid for on a 0% credit card for 24 months. Im repaying the card at £83 pcm. Really is a no brainer for a 2005 car , someone with a half decent credit score and loves his zzzz at night !

I even managed to get the opc to waive the credit card processing fee but i suppose that was apt as i bought a friggin brand new moll battery , im not bitter honest ...

And theres nowt wrong with a gremlin (s) providing you have a decent warranty in place, if anything you want all the gremlins remedied before your wd cover expires,
not being funny i wait with baited breath as to your

renewal premium and permission to renew, fingers crossed and keep up the good work ( claim ups )
