PostPosted: Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:15 pm    Post subject: Anyone know a good garage in Poole/Bournemouth area? Reply with quote

Hi all,

I'm new here but have had my 996 turbo about 5 years.

I need to find a good garage to do a service + suspension work + other bits and bobs. I've tried a couple of indie places and haven't been entirely satisfied.

Anyone know anywhere good? I keep thinking of resorting to the OPC but I feel pain at the thought of taking a 16 year old car to a main dealer!

Cheers

Russ did his learnt his trade at AFN in the 70's and ended up on the Moby Dick race team, and Dave is a proper whizz. They're reasonably priced and I can't fault them Very Happy

I used these guys for a PPI on a 996 Turbo a few years back, they were excellent, but as stated it was a little while ago.

I'm also from the Bournemouth area, my car alternates between 9E (for majors) and the local OPC in Ferndown. Don't write them off, prices are very competitive considering its a main dealer and they quoted cheaper for a major service than JMG (also in ferndown).

You also get a nice courtesy car and Porsche club discount Thumb

I agree always worth checking the opc as often they can be cheaper for bits especially after the discount we get just by asking lol. the guys at Bournemouth OPC are a nice bunch Thumb

Yeah I had some work by them which seemed OK. Unfortunately I came away feeling somewhat ripped off. I won't go into it too much but I had an almost comical conversation partway through a job regarding their convenient "fixed pricing" :

garage: while part x is off, it makes sense for us to replace part y
me: ok, how much is that?
garage: we change part y for a fixed price of ££££
me: but surely that should be cheaper as you've already removed part x? You just told me that!
garage: but our prices are fixed......

It's a shame as they're convenient & sounded like they knew what they were talking about (to my non-mechanic ear!) but I just don't trust them now.

I hear 9E are very good. Do you know if they do any sort of collection/drop off service as they're quite far? How are their prices? Thanks

Ken was able to offer me a car whilst mine was in, as you say its quite far for us so thats why it goes up there for the 'bigger' services, prices were honest/fair. Thumb
