I took my car in for a service last week to OPC Bristol, expecting the usual Cayman / Boxster loan car, but they had none available so gave me a 991 Targa 4S PDK!

needless to say i was pretty surprised and what an amazing car it was - makes mine feel like S*** now!

has anyone else had any similar experiences?

I haven't, I had a brand new Boxster 2.7 with PDK and it was absolutely awful. Couldn't wait to hand it back. Apparently a lot of people who have had them said the same, but at least I tried it.

BMW returned my company car to me last year, after it received an MOT and 2 tyre changes, but it came back to me with the locking wheel nuts in the glovebox...... :-(

....after lengthy 'discussions' with the dealer principle, he loaned me a box fresh 991 S-PDK for a long weekend and a visit at Gleneagles to top it off.

Not a loan car per se, but the best compensation I've had. When my 8yo daughter screamed 'Dad, it's like riding on thunder' from the back seat, I had to own my own.

It had no go. The gearbox was way too smooth. Even on full-bore redline upshifts I just couldn't feel the gear changed. I didn't expect it to be like a CSL but it would be nice to know it is happening. Not loud enough either. Brakes looked silly as it had 20" wheels with tiny disks. I guess there is a big enough market for this kind of gearbox calibration, it was very well done but not for me.

I agree, its the 20" rims though, not the brakes, the brakes are just fine under those over sized range Rover wheels.

Ouch! I guess you had to pay £1000 excess on the insurance policy?

This is certainly the most expensive car I ever had on loan. From OPC Chester back when I used them. Panamera S

Had this from OPC Wilmslow recently. A brand new GTS with a panoramic roof. Fantastic car, and it really shifted as well. I had to rev it more than my Turbo but that's normal I suppose. Once the revs were up there it felt really fast. At the time I was thinking it felt just as fas as my car. Until I got back in my car. But it was really impressive.

Had a great spec also.
