Anyone been on the factory visit with the Porsche GB club.

I went back in September, left thursday evening and got back monday night. Some 2500 miles, went to Zuffaunhaussen and Leipzig and was given a full tour of both factories and even went out on the test track.

Managed to even get out on the "ring" for a few laps. Brilliant time, good food, v. nice people and plenty to drink and more importantly beautiful Porsche driving conditions.

Next trip is in April and September.

Made an impromptu visit to the Porsche museum this year (had a day spare between Frankfurt and Paris), but the factory tour was fully booked.

There is a new museum opening soon (may already be open, but I think it said 2007), which sounds like it would be worth waiting for.

Had a misfire en-route and the dealer opposite the factory changed mass air-flow sensor and a pedal switch for less than half the OPC cost in the UK... Worth knowing if anyone is coming up for a major service and planning a visit around the same time?

When was the last time you saw plants in an OPC workshop? Novelty plant pot though... wonder if I would be allowed a couple of them in my garden :twisted:
