  1. I should have known better. Having bought a fine, unmolested example of a 2007 987.1, and aiming to continue the unblemished OPC service record, thanks to its previous 2 owners, I decided to trust the upcoming minor service to my local OPC. I knew it would cost 824 GBP - more than twice the service cost at Cotswold Porsche. I knew I was being irrational, supposing that the OPC stamp was worth 500GBP, yet I persuaded myself that, along with the stamp, I would be cosseted by first class, personalised service. I was wrong. Whilst I had no issues with the nuts and bolts of the service, I was otherwise unimpressed. This was my first visit to this OPC, and potentially the first of many in the future. No attempt made to ask about my relationship with the vehicle, and what recent work may have been done during my stewardship. So, for instance, the visual check suggested a (surprise, surprise) A/.C service, despite the obvious signs that most A/C components had recently been replaced-why not contact me to clarify this? I queried this, and other points, with the sevice manager. Obfuscation reigned. A final note...I'm sure a visual inspection of the drive belt is not a minor servce item..it was ticked, but I doubt it was done, otherwise why did the service stamp not indicate this...etc. etc. Anyway, lessons learned..more brass than sense, some folk !
  2. ......thought so! Having taken the cupholder apart to fix erratic latching, I imagined a whole section in the Stuttgart drawing office office tasked with creating the cupholder equivalent of a Swiss watch. Having nearly succeeded, they were awarded the job of deadlocking flat battery access. They excelled with that - can’t beat a Porsche for hidden wheezes.
  3. Hello, Can anyone explain the dynamics of the rear hatch counterweight? I have accessed mine in an attempt to fix the infamous rattle (nod of thanks to WindyMiller). Such a cryptic design - to what problem was this the solution? If simple resonance, would not conventional damping material have been the long-lasting solution..or am I, as yet, too new to the marque to get the philosophy..?
