Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS! What a beautiful car.

When I purchased my 997 from an OPC they did provide me (via Admiral) 7 days cover.

Enjoy! thumbsup


Thanks! thats what I would have expected too....perhaps its because of my age.....not yet 25, thats probably why they are too scared to insure me? (I must be the luckiest man on earth to own a 911 at this age)


I would guess that any policy they offer of this type would be based on the purchaser being over 25.

You are indeed very young to be purchasing a brand new 911, I must be doing something wrong. All the best with the new car. Very Happy

Don't bother with Diamondbrite, if you want to protect it then spend the money with a professional detailer. You should be fine with the film re warranty, but I have mixed feelings about it, especially on white because it can 'yellow' with age. My OPC provided cover, who is your dealer?


Firstly congrats!!

Secondly as above dont bother with Diamondbrite...which OPC is offering this???

Contact Elite Detailer (on this site) to book a full pre-delivery detail....it is astonishing how scratched a car is on delivery! It will be the best thing you can do.

Paintshield (based in Peterbrough) are very good and Tom the owner will look after your car. Many companies offering this will use a knife on your car so you need to be in the best hands if considering this. The main area to protect is the front end, there are varying amounts of protection ranging from a bumper to full frontal shield. There are also different grades of film ranging; lower end are thin, yellow easily and also have an orangepeel appearance, top end are very durable and almost undetectable. Neitehr will protect your licence Wink



Tom at Paintshield is your man ! Make sure you listen to the care instructions and follow them. The film will not yellow unless you use the wrong products. Mine was fitted 18 months ago and its still perfect.

Congratulations, I am quite sure that you will be delighted with the car!

I have got to ask, as I am sure others must be thinking the same, what's the insurance cost at that age?

Pictures up here tomorrow please thumbsup

Welcome, and congratulations.

I think the unwritten question we all want to know is how can you afford it at your age!

Smile

Should we do a poll from:

Daddy's money/ family business
In the City
Computer geek
Media /pop star
Advertising
Drugs/pharmaceuticals
Lottery
Other

Oh come on, you can tell us what you do for a living - we won't tell anybody, promise!

Fantastic looking car by the way - I bet you can't wait to drive it out of the showroom.

Congrats, looks amazing, youre gona love it!

Are you picking up from Reading OPC by any chance? Was in there a couple of days ago and like a naughty kid in a sweet shop sneaked a peak at a white 991 under the presentation robe.

I found the money quite good, because they pay by the inch, and of course it is performance related pay.

Very Happy
