True
Unless you go on a PCGB OPC night for a free checkup and they do a special offer on any work found at £50 per hour plus vat.

They hold the price for any work you have done after the night....

And they normally have PCGB night once a year so time you work with the visit a save £'s

Most OPC's have the Porsche club nights as it's an opportunity for work that would normally go to none franchised and chance to sell you in to an upgraded car.....

Top tip.....

So, does that have a knock-on effect on the so-called Porsche fixed price servicing Question

Also, to big up OPC Tonbridge, they replaced my windscreen last week, which only cost me the insurance excess, and whilst the car was there I got them to do another small job, for which they didn't charge Thumb

And they collected/delivered and valeted the car. The latter being pretty much a waste of time, as it was driven back in the pi$$ing rain frustrated

They told me that compared to Ford, Volvo, BMW, they were one of the cheapest main dealers around.
