They're usually on back order Question
I needed one last year and it took 3 months from order to delivery - but that was 18 months ago.....

I thought Porsche had just announced that they were being reprinted, or maybe that was just owners manuals.

I saw the article about all the owner manuals, but not service books.
It's still worth just contacting OPC and ordering one - might be a long wait, or they might just check stock at other depots....I know they do that for other parts?

what would be the process to get them restamped by the previous dealerships if so?

Would our service records be on computer?

I know another OPC can see all of the UK OPC service record but I don’t know how far this history goes back given how ‘old’ our cars are

Sadly the service records are on several computers that can't actually talk to each other as they are operated by several dealer franchises. If you're lucky your car may have been kept within one group but otherwise it'll take several phone calls and visits.

Whether early 993 services would pre-dates the computer records ......... Dont know

How many years of service record was this? And was it all with the same dealer?

Good question, as the car was just 3 yrs old it had only had one service from the dealership I went to, who happened to be the original supplier. So it was quite simple.

The new data protection laws make it hard to get service and history info on cars because you don’t get names and details of former keepers. I’ve always contacted former keepers where possible to get a bit of background on a car but not so easy now.

That sounds like a huge increase!
I ordered mine in August '17 at OPC Chester, and it came in November '17

I’m sure I paid £40 for mine a couple of years ago. Ran out of space in the original as there is not enough space if you are doing a yearly revive and want the stamps.

Porsche Brooklands managed to get one for me recently but it was on back order for about nine or ten months.

Just check they get you the right one .... OPC Tewkesbury got mine and it is the correct one for the early cars ..... later cars the service book changed. They generally just tap the VIN into the computer which should sort it.

As mine is an early one it shows servicing schedule for the 964 (kid you not) and the replacement was thankfully the same. I waited around 12 months for it and the OPC didn’t charge me for it either..... result

Has anyone has this done?

Cheers
