  1. Hi all, Giving an update here as promised. So dropped the car off at No 5 garage around 11 am. Was immediately met by Sam who was a friendly guy going through what I need doing. He spotted there's some condensation on the rear right light and said he will look into this for me as it can be very costly if not fixed early enough. As well an intermediate service, I wanted to get the following looked into too: - Rear spoiler. Noticed when I put the spoiler down, there's like a 1 inch gap that makes it look like the spoiler is not shutting properly. Sam told me he thinks the rear spoiler is warped because it's plastic... Kinda took his word for it and left it like. - Front wheels judders when I full lock. Sam assured me this was very normal due to the size of the alloys (20"). Sam informed me I might not able to pick the car up by the time they closed at 5 pm but that's ok, I didn't mind going back to pick it up on Saturday. Popped off to the gym nearly and at 3 pm, I received a call from Richard that the car was ready so made my way back. Total was £510 inc. VAT and Brake fluid change. The condensation was sorted out too and car was cleaned. Overall pleased with the service. Sam and Richard were friendly. Thanks
  2. Cheers CraigIm68! I've gone ahead and booked at No. 5 Garage next week. My family live around West London and conveniently I'll be around the area next week. Booked a minor service (£330) + brake fluid change (£85) exc. VAT. Will give an update after!
  3. Thanks! Would much prefer to keep it within London. Jaz Porsche quoted me just under £600. Their facilities look fantastic but not keen driving all the way there. Porche Tech quoted me just around £740. Much expensive than OPC. I think I'll probably go with 911 SBD. Did some research on them and they seem reputable as they were previously (Or still?) a Porsche racing team it seems? Think I remember they quotes me for around £500. Need to double check tomorrow.
  4. Hi all, As some of you may know over on another thread my 981 is due a minor service asap. Been pondering if I should go to an official dealer or a Porsche specialist Indy to get the work done, however my nearest official dealer who will offer the minor service for £615 is in Sidcup, South London. Ideally like to keep it abit closer and Indy's I've found can do a minor service for around half the price vs. official dealer. Just wondering what's everyone's thoughts on these 5 Indy Porsche specialists? Does anybody have experiences on any of these, or can recommend me something within the M25? Ordered from closest to me but not in price order: Belgravia Garage (Central London) - https://www.belgraviagarage.com/services/porsche/ RGA Porsche (Vauxhall, London) - https://www.rgaporschelondon.co.uk/ 911 SBD (Neasden, NW London) - https://porscheservicelondon.co.uk/london-independent-porsche-garage/ Porsche Tech (Finchley, NW London) - http://porchetech.co.uk/porsche-servicing Charles Ivey (Surbiton, Surrey) - http://www.charlesivey.com/services-parts-and-mots/ Hoping to book something in very, very soon... Thanks for your help all!
  5. Also how does everyone feel about taking their pride and joy to an independent Porsche specialist for a service?
  6. Thanks for the replies everyone! I've called Porsche East London and they quoted me £740 for the minor service when I was expecting it to be £615. Apparently all London Porsche centres don't follow the fixed price service. Call Tonbridge, Kent branch and they are doing it for £615 but no dates available until from 11 July. Going to try the Reading branch and other surrounding areas of London to get the best price and best days/time. Ideally would had liked to get it done this Saturday.
  7. Hi all, Hope everyone is well? Recently I've been getting in car display that an interim service and oil change is due however the car was last serviced 8 June 2017 with an engine oil change done already. What I understand from Porsche's service intervals are the first service is 2 years after manufacture or 20,000 miles (whichever comes first), then repeat after every 2 years and 20,000 miles. Here's some details of the car with what was done during the first service in June 2017: Car manufacture date - April 2016 Service was performed on 8 June 2017 at 5,595 miles (Intermediate maintenance, maintenance, spark plug replacement, drive belt checked/replaced, engine oil change) Current car milage is 11,489 miles What's everyones recommendation? Reckon I should get it serviced or just leave it until June 2020 for the 4 year service or when the car gets to 20,000 miles (whichever comes first)? My thinking is it's 2 years this month since the first service however I've only driven the car under 6,000 miles since the last service. Thanks for reading!
  8. bump... still can't figure out why this has just happened.
  9. Hi all, Out of the blue the rear sensor on my 981 boot is not working for some reason. Always found it very useful without having to get the keys out to open the boot. Does anyone know how to get this working again or is there an issue somewhere? Cheers
  10. Hi all, I'm one step closer to being an owner of a 981 2.7ltr Cayman. Before finalising the purchase, what should I really be looking out for in terms of the servicing and general maintenance of the car? I'm purchasing from a non-Porsche dealer too. It's a 2016 car with just under 9,000 miles. It has a full Porsche service history so I've asked them to send me the document via e-mail, I've asked whether the tyres have been changed and salesman said it probably hasn't been changed since new and reckons they're still within the legal thread limit (I'll check on the day of collection though). Thanks
  11. Update: looks like the car is provisionally sold as the site says reserved. Unfortunately i’m not the one that reserved it. My hunt continues!
  12. Furthermore I received pictures of the interior and looks like these are standard seats instead of sport seats? Suits me fine because the sports seats were abit uncomfy for me as I have wide shoulders so they kept digging into me....
  13. Hi all, Here's the car in question: http://www.stratstone.com/search/vehicledetails/used-car-porsche-cayman--automatic-petrol-white-coupe-BR14HAL/ The options that were a must is to have 20" alloys and Sport design steering wheel which this car has. The nice to haves were twin exhaust pipe, Porsche crescent on headrest, Sports Chrono but for the price of this car, I thought it's a bargain so didn't mind none of the nice to haves were on there. Spoke to the sales rep on the phone and he said the next service is due 2020. There's only been one service and that was at a Bentley service centre. Unsure if it has Navigation, PASM and Air con. I assume it has Air Con... nearly all modern cars have Air Con these days??? I can check on these things tomorrow though.
  14. Hi all, I might pull the trigger on purchasing a 981 Cayman from a dealer soon but the website I saw it on does not give any information about the car. I'd like to find out some answers first but not exactly sure what are the things I should look out for when purchased a used Cayman. Any helpers here? I got the usual service history, tyre thread covered. But is there anything specific I need to ask? It's a 2014 model that's done very little mileage. Thanks!
  15. Great! Thanks very much DJMC :)
