Just went online to book the old girl in for service at PCT (coventry) who have done her for the last 7 or 8 years. Am met with a webpage saying 'we're ceasing to trade from 22nd December' How sad.... they were brill' Sad

Anyway.... I now need to find an alternative, obviously somewhere that is good with our 993s, but hopefully not too far away! I originally went to JZM when I first bought her in 2003, but it's just too far.

I seem to remember somebody saying there was someone good in Leicester?

Any pointers much appreciated.

Thanks

Will

Quorn sports and classics have a great rep. Ex-OPC technician.
DW in Northampton also good. Ex-Silverstone OPC
Portech are new and also ex-Leicester OPC
Zentrum in calverton is my choice.
Cavendish have a mixed reputation.

You should get yourself along to our regional TIPEC meet in Loughborough when the weather improves.

Will,

I was a regular customer of PCT and now PCT Select (Richard Harrison) does the work on my precious 993. Richard was one of the top PCT mechanics and set up on his own last year.

I alway use Martin Brown, across the road from where PCT were.

Not Leics or Derbyshire though, but neither were PCT!
