Hi all,

I have decided to go for my first Classic Porsche but equally one that is quite modern to drive as it will be my only car. Don't really use one as daily driver living in central London but I wanted something reliable that will start on a button and be good for some holiday trips. So 964 seem to be the best option.
I have done a fair bit of research and read through Adrian Crawford Buyers guide for 964 and visited Williams Crawford the other week as they had a nice 964 on sale. Before I could commit to buy it someone else did but over the phone so I kept searching.
I now have found one with Ciaran Woods in NI - woods911. After a phone call and email exchange I was quite pleased to hear the car is in perfect condition so I have paid a holding deposit. Now I'd like to do a PPI before flying out to confirm everything myself.

So can anyone recommend a Porsche specialist that is based in/around Belfast that could visit Ciaran and do a PPI for me?
Since it is going to be my first Porsche and a classic one I want to play it safe,

When I'm home I use George McMillan for all my work. Can't recommend him highly enough and he's based in Ballyclare which is just outside Belfast. Not sure if George does PPI work or not but he'll know someone who does so worth giving him a call. He might even know the car in question.

Website is in this link: http://www.mcmillanporsche.com/

Edit: Embarassed Just looked at the site myself and he does offer inspections at the seller's location so there's an option to consider.
