After years of taking my car to the same indy (no names) their lack of customer service, I recently booked 3 weeks ahead, turned up and they said they were to busy and sent me away and to come back a week later, I am looking for a new company.

I am going to try DW Performance....they get good FB reviews.

I've been on the receiving end of appalling customer service from two indies that are closest to me (North Bucks). Excellent service from Porsche Silverstone but very expensive (£550 for a minor service Surprised ). Would be interested to hear what you think of DW as they are not too far away from me!

Kevin at DW really good guy. My sons 968 went in for front end belt change, found leak on crank seal. Contacted him to say would change for cost of part only as did not want to leave in case affected new belts. Two other neighbours use him for their Boxsters. Next door neighbour will be changing to him when his OPC warranty runs out (fed up with being ripped off-his words by OPC)

DW would be my choice if I were closer.

They did my Gundo, and are a great outfit.

Kev is ex-Silverstone OPC Master Technician, and one of the nicest guys you'll meet.

You wont be dissapointed.

I have used DW a few times over the years and been very happy with them, great bunch. They are highly regarded in the local area by local porsche owners.

I live 80 miles away from Kev at DW and have used him when my go to bloke Chris Cobley at Diablo Engineering is booked. Can’t rate Kev highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

I only saw you yesterday and you managed to avoid the main job the car came in for (don’t blame you for not wanting it though) Very Happy

You are going to see SO many forum members Saturday week too

You are a star Iain!

Iain, only this week I booked into your Indy for the first time and specifically booked you to do a couple of jobs on my car. All because of this forum and your excellent knowledge and willingness to share it for the benefit of others. Cool

Bless you , they mentioned at work a car coming in ref the forum but i wasn't sure who it was .. now i do Very Happy

Make sure you say hello if you have time .. if waiting then its no problem .. i often don't get to meet customers and it's always something i enjoy .

No pressure though for me on fault finding Very Happy

@ Albionmuz ..

To be honest i ran off and hid !!

The mechanic i wanted to do the job sorted it in the end but it did give him a bit of a headache , he mentioned it was one of the tightest he had done and made up a puller tool to do the job .

Saturday will be a busy day for me indeed .. but should be fun !

@ basildon993

Hello stranger Smile not seen you here in a while which is always a shame , trouble with your car is its every 2 years for a service and you don't really have any problems so i don't get to say hi very often .


I think in all we have about 7 forum members that actually use us and i can have the occasional chat with ..

The jobs i like are the difficult problems but the owners with these cars are always too far away for me to have a look .. hence i do what i can on here instead .


Sorry for the Hijack OP Embarassed

Iain and his friends will need sunglasses this week. Two yellows in the same week...... Mine is in on Friday for a wax job and a preventative actuator rod replacement (must remember the car’s wax job is different to mine at tanarama Surprised Thumb)
