just got a 996 C4 2001 last week but only just had it insured yest!! As with many people this was really a dream come true!!
it has full service hist and is @40000Miles

only had it hpi'd and hoped for the best!! looked at some threads here and although many ppl said to get it inspected some said as long as theres service history it shouldnt really be a prob!!

hopefully i dont have problems and will surely ask many more q's here !!

need a good place to get it serviced (cheap) in london if anyone can help!!

thanks!

Welcome! Porsche and cheap servicing? Now there's an oxymoron if I ever heard one! Lots of votes on here for JZM, but a little way out of London and certainly not cheap, although very thorough.

Follow these simple steps and you'll be fine:

1. Floor it when you can
2. Smile like Tom "sh*t eating grin" Cruise
3. Repeat as often as desired.

Don't let that scare you, I get 25 mpg on average (mostly motorway).
