Just got an invite through for the above. Does anyone know if this is a national thing or just a marketing campaign trying to flog me one of the 500 Macans they've got lined up out the front.
I'm dropping mine of for a minor service on Wed, but thought I'd ask here first if anyone had the good oil on it before I went in.

Hi bud
Doing the same event in Perth Scotland so I would say it’s nationwide. Not sure what the scrip is to be honest.

Didn’t this come up last year and it’s a used car event over a long weekend? It had a GT3 on the front of the invite last year....there are a few of those to shift.

PS think I saw your 4C on the roads around goodwood at the weekend. It certainly was a yellow one Thumb

It's got a red 991.2 GT3 on the invite this year. I'll be making myself visible for this to get me on the radar with sales for any impending purchases should the opportunity arise

Got my invite, chucked it in the bin.

We would like to invite you to come and be sold a car.

Would you like a timeshare too?

That wasn't mine but it was parked in the same car park (field) as me. Brave man driving over that rutted grass what

I'm going to see if they'll let me order a 718 GT4/Spyder. Otherwise I'm not parting with the folding Grin

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

PostPosted: Mon Sep 10, 2018 9:15 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I have had invites from 3 Of them !!

I’ll go along to one of them in particular to see what the new dealer principal has to say for himself as I am down there on business on Wednesday anyway .....

Their cars are usually way overpriced and poorly prepped ,swirls and scratches seem to be the order of the day there ..., salesmen have rotten attitudes that I don’t like ....I like the service staff , they are a different breed from the sales boys ......

I don’t know how they have the nerve to print the invites with GT3’ S on it ...

It’s like Jim Bowen’s catchphrase on the Bullseye show ....’ this is what you could have had !’
But didn’t !!!

Ok, so I went along and as expected it was an excuse to get you through the door. Only difference was they'd put out a flashy floor mat. With the excuse of heading down I thought I'd go and get my car valued by them and was surprised by their offer. After the horror stories I've heard from people who have gone in for trade in value, it gave me food for thought. Good news is that I'm still in positive from when I bought it 4.5 years ago Thumb
