2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Sat Oct 27, 2012 4:37 pm    Post subject: OPC Silverstone Reply with quote

I needed a front splitter as yet again the old one has failed to return from a 911UK tour.

I wanted it for the Brooklands meet so rang OPC Sutton Coldfield on Thursday to order one.

They said they had none in stock and neither did Porsche GB, but there was one at OPC Silverstone. They rang Silverstone and reserved it for me.

I rang OPC Silverstone yesterday to see what time they closed, and said I might be tight on time. No problem, they will wait for me.

We went today to pick it up, all ready for me, along with a nice cup of coffee.

(Apparently they keep one in stock for both the 996 and 997 and sell about 6 or 7 a month, due to their proximity to the circuit.)

As we left my wife commented what a nice friendly dealership it was.

Never been, but Thumb for the service.

It's nice to be treated nicely; it shouldn't be a pleasant surprise, it should be the norm, but all too often isn't so it's nice when it happens...

I had to spend a few hours with them a couple of years ago (had no oil
pressure, prior to a Silverstone trackday)...they were really helpful and
sorted out the software issue. Cool

Very friendly dealership.

I ran for an opinion regarding a 997 Turbo couple of months back, very honestly (Dean) told me not to buy it as it has been over rev'd ..revealed after their checks!

2001 Porsche 996 Targa

PostPosted: Sun Oct 28, 2012 7:09 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I use them if I need something coming back from London after work and rate them nearly as good as my local Nottingham OPC.

On a side note is the fully restored 993 still in the window at Silverstone OPC near the coffee machine, £40k to bring it up to that standard?
