Hi, having just acquired a 996 3.4 C2 that's been looked after by Northway Porsche for the last 11 years I'm looking for the right specialist in Sussex to look after the car.

I guess my main options are Parr, Nine Excellence, both in Gatwick/Horley and Precision.

I have also found Addspeed and GCS in Horsham, although not exclusively Porsche.

Any info/recommendations?

Hi Pearcy,

I may be biased but have you considered Paragon?

Saw your other thread, the car looks very good!

Welcome to the community, enjoy.

Cheers, Keith.

Can recommend both Addspeed and 9E.

Haven't tried the others.

Or main dealer for general servicing as they are cheaper.

I have used Parr for servicing and a few extra recommended works.
Seemed to be helpful, friendly and professional.
I cant really compare the bill to anything, as I also asked them to do a full check of everything, due to the vehicle not having been used much over a couple of years. Hence it was probably a bit more than a normal service, but they gave a fully detailed condition report which gave me piece of mind that all was well.
I had a list of work that was put in order of priority, and agreed for them to attend to anything that we thought should be done immediately.
Interestingly, they didn't put the IMS upgrade on the "critical" list, but they pointed out that it was something well worth considering.

Would go back again when next service due.

Ken knows Porsche very well. Thumb

You could also try Autotechnics in Chichester - I think that they do the work for some of the local indy dealers....
