Has anybody bought this recently?

Just got off the phone to my local opc and they’ve quoted me £2100 Surprised

I was under the impression that it’s around the 1k mark

Also I know the kit varies between c2 & c4. Is there a difference between manual & tip? Mines the latter

Thanks

Marc

IIRC they are only about a grand for a 3.6 these days

dunno what the difference is.

Try Carnewal. Konis and eibach is a good choice.

Yes, that's where the 030 name came from.

That’s a bit steep, I ordered mine in Feb and paid circa £750 (excl vat) with some discount applied through my local OPC.

The dampers are different 3.4 and 3.6

the springs are different coupe, cab and targa and again manual and tiptronic

This is why you get different prices at OPC.

I have no idea which car the porscheshop listing is for, but I would never ever buy anything from them - they simply markup OPC prices - sometimes extortionately - if you just ring the OPC it will be cheaper and you will get a discount if you ask.

You could just work out which variation its cheapest for and buy that....I doubt you will notice much difference.... probably what porscheshop did and added 20%.

To the OP Marc - did you manage to find the M030 kit at a lower price? I am looking around and it looks as though the kit is no longer available at the lower prices...I would be grateful to know if it is still possible to buy this without coughing up £2000 plus.. Many thanks.

Where can I get the kit at a reasonable price for a 3.4 C4 coupe manual?
