Has anyone got any recommendations from their own or a friends experience with any of these OPC's; Nottingham, Wilmslow, Chester & Leeds. In particular the sales departments for new and/or used vehicles.

Thanks!

Never had a problem with Leeds.

Bought my previous GT3 from there, excellent service before and after the sale. Would quite happily got my RS from there, but they couldn't get the spec I wanted....

Wilmslow were decent when I bought mine from them. Sheffield have been excellent, and had good service from Nottingham too.

Had mixed results with Chester. First time my Boxster went in, they really messed me around. Couldn't give me a hire car but said they'd drop me off home and then pick my up the next day. The next day they called to confirm and cancel three times, in the end said they couldn't pick me up and that I should get a taxi which they would reimburse me for.

When I collected my car, the woman said, "Your car is waiting outside all ready and nice and clean for you." When I went to the car, it hadn't been cleaned, they'd forgotten.

Next time I went they gave me a goody bag as a way of an apology. After that they were OK for a while. And I was overall happy with the service.

However a couple of years later I took my 911 Cab in as the AirCon wasn't working. The woman I dealt with (Sarah) said it was most likely in need of gassing, and they apparently never gave it the proper checks and re-gassed it.

A day after collection (and £200) I tried to use it again and it still didn't work. I took it back and they then diagnosed a leaking radiator. They quoted me £500 for replacement. After I paid I felt that I should get a refund for the first botched attempt to repair it, but they refused. Even upon emailing the Dealer Principle they wouldn't budge. I left there is disgust and never returned.

Four months later I went to Wilmslow and bought my current 997 Turbo from them. A sale that Chester most likely would have got, but for the sake of £200 they lost a car buying customer.

Congrats on the car chap. Never been a fan of yellow cars but that's the second recent Porsche I've seen in that colour combination and it looks good. PCCBs as well if I'm not mistaken.

Wouldn't be my choice of colour in a cab as I don't like the black roof contrast. I'm presuming its speed yellow (pics look like banana yellow) which looks great in coupes.

Anyway colour is a personal choice buy what floats your boat Thumb

I saw my first Turbo S on the road a few months ago. BIG just doesn't come close to describing it. How the hell you are supposed to thread that thing down a back road is beyond me! I'm happy with my 'snug' 996 turbo.

I personally hate the trend for 'Some is good, more is better and too much is just right'. No offence to any 991 Turbo S owners, just not my cup of tea....

OP, car looks fab in yellow! Congratulations.

Colour is for sure a personal thing and I have my own wouldn't haves. I had a 2012 black 997.2 cab for a few months but didn't feel 100% with it, this on the other hand is f@@kin awesome it really.
While I was negotiating the deal I came across http://www.autogespot.co.uk/porsche-991-carrera-4s-cabriolet-1/2013/09/03 photos on the net of the very same car, which seemed a bit twilight zone to me Laughing

Great spec !

Agree the new turbo s actually seem larger than life . Saw one going out on test recently and it struck me how much bigger they are.
