after giving my car its first clean this weekend after a salt ridden road trip to caffeine and machine i noticed rust on the rear of the front wheel arches (where the tyres have created road rash).

anyone recommend somewhere north manchester (I'm Bury / Ramsbottom) who has experience of working on 996s and who won't charge me an arm and leg....i don't mind paying for good work but i've got loads of other jobs i want to do this year Very Happy

Road and Race is used by OPC Wilmslow and Bolton. You won't find much better.

The quality is fantastic. Someone's just keyed my lads 650i and he'll be doing that for him in a week or 2. He's a really sound genuine guy too.

Thanks for the heads up. Got a couple of slight scuffs that I can live with for the time being (just settling into ownership after the initial mechanical issues) but was looking for somebody I could trust with the paintwork. thumbsup

Ian Burton is a one man band, old school paint shop. I haven't used him for the 996 but he has done extensive work on my classic Alfa and did a great job.
