My mechanic has just called me with an update on some work he's doing. He was quite surprised as he ordered a water pump and window regulator from ECP and when they delivered them, they were genuine Porsche parts. Didn't know ECP did that, neither did he?? Dont know

You can order most PET parts from ECP. They have a dedicated chap (ex parts guy at OPC Reading) at their Wembley office. I bought a 996 GT3 bumper from ECP at half the cost of the identical part from Porsche - turned up in a Porsche box too!

I don't know if the service is available to the general public; I ordered on a trade account.

If you order parts with brand "VM" from ecp/cp4l

This means "vehicle manufacturer" and they are genuine parts.

My flywheel bolts and rear main seal ordered from ECP (actually CP4L) were missed off the delivery, I called them up and they had OPC kendal deliver them.

Make sure you order from their sister company carparts4less, they carry almost all the same parts at significant discount compared to ECP prices and they regularly have special offer discount codes.

I ordered some parts recently and they were genuine Porsche parts that were just missing the Porsche logo on the packaging. Rest of the package was identical to the Porsche packaging including the anti-rust plastic bags etc..

I always use cp4l but this was my mechanic. He gets a good discount so I can't complain.
