2004 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:18 pm    Post subject: 2nd Hand Porsche Parts - A thoroughly decent chap.. Reply with quote

Here's something you rarely experience these days..

I purchased a N/S/F headlamp unit last year from a fellow forum member on here. They are not cheap at around £2k new..

The lamp unit was 95% as described and clarity a perfect match (main concern) for my O/S which I had recently changed.

However there were a couple of reasons why I was not totally happy with it.

Anyway, after a comment I made on here the seller contacted me to say he would keep an eye out for a replacement and exchange it when he could.

That was last year and I did not persue the matter.

A few days ago I posted in the 'For Sale & Wants' section for a manual steering wheel to carry out a DIY 'paddle shift' conversion and possible retrim. I wanted to spend as little as possible and use my existing airbag/cover.

To my surprise, I received a text from the same guy who said - "I have one, do you want it?"

My new steering wheel arrived this morning, nicely packaged and all postage paid for. No charge!

To say I am delighted is an understatement..

My company's business motto is "Your entire satisfaction our minimum standard" and I can honestly say that I have experienced exactly that..

HSC911 (Jin) - Thank you Sir Thumb

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jin a few times. From my experience he is one of life’s good guys. The type that is hard to say a bad word about.

A well deserved recommendation. My only criticism would be description/accuracy but talk about honourable.

This must be by far the best enthusiast forum out there. A valuable resource and some real genuine people on here thumbsup

Jin has just helped me out with a very fair price for the rear alloy wheel I need due to mine being cracked!

Sent to me and insisted that I wait and make sure it balances up and I'm happy before I send the payment or return for a refund; so yes a great guy from my experience and matches the great help/advice I've received from many on here Thumb
