Welcome to 911uk

Your User Name is going to cause confusion. We've already got a very prolific poster called Phil 997.

Which side of London are you enquiring about? There are good Porsche specialists in all four compass points.

welcome Phil , I have to say I was confused at first and thought I was losing my marbles , nothing wrong with the username but would hate you to get abuse aimed at me (and I do get some stick on here lol) and never post again Grin hope admin manage to sort you out with a decent user name

maybe "Phil with a 997 but not Phil 997 or even Phil997 or even 997Phil"

its a bit long winded but works ok Floor Floor

Thank you all for your prompt replies and my apologies to Phil 997 for accidentally chasing a name so close to his.
I note NineExcellence and PorscheTorque were recommended more than once. Anyone heard about Precision please? (further down South)

Again thank you. Phil

Precision Porsche are very well regarded on here by many. Friendly, very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Had you asked of Indys south of London, I would have pointed you in their direction.

As it happens Precision Porsche are holding a Cars and Coffee event on Saturday 6th April, you could pop along and check them out for yourself.

You could always change your user name to 'Phil Who Has Not Seen His 997 For Some Time Now'

Only negative here (based on experience) is that Sid is often really busy, so you might have to wait a while. I guess there is always a price to pay for quality work somewhere along the line.
