I think I've just visited an OPC in an alternate reality.

I was having a problem with rough idling and took my car in this morning. Pleasant chat with the lady on the desk, cup of coffee whilst the guys out the back ran the diagnostics.

Result: faulty variocam thingy in bank 1 requiring a replacement with 6 hrs labour (1400). Thankfully covered by the Porsche warranty. Letting them have my car next Wednesday morning. Will be given a brand new loner for the day.

Assuming that everything goes as planned, I'm very happy with my first trip to the OPC with my 996.

Only problem I can see is that the loner is a Boxster Wink

No I dont think so, just diffrent problem, diffrent cover.

Dont think Cardiff OPC is bad at all, just my bad luck for type of faults.

Jay T - best to drop the Cab off Tuesday eve, then you can drive the Boxster under the cover of darkness....

Daz, I think you have been really unlucky. The MotherIL has had hers for years from new and hasn't built up many bills at all. Just tyres, servicing and a bit of warranty work. Maybe only 4K in total. But maybe that is the advantage of buying the car from new. You get to cherish the car from day 1, ensuring it is looked after perfectly and kept the way you want to.

Try not to lose the faith. Smile

Jay - I use Lovett's at Bristol as well and so far (touch wood) they have been great. Mine is in for RMS next week (joy!) and they have always been very accomodating and helpful (apart from the fact that I always get a Cayenne as a loaner!!)

When they were giving me a choice of loaner, I thought they said Cayman. Turned out to be Cayenne Embarassed

So Boxster it is then ...

Yep, I thought they said Cayman at first as well!!

Got the Cayenne S next week so at least it will have a little more go than the last boggo standard one I had.

No Box available Sad
