No personal experience but I seem to remember one of the forum regulars having a nightmare experience when attempting to purchase a 993 & the dealer not happy the purchaser wanted an independent inspection done after the dealer had carried out some work on the car. Easternjets, is the member I think.

I am that man!!

First thing avoid them like the plague!

The thread got pulled by Sundeep, at my request but only because they said I wouldn't get my money back unless it was!!
It was actually the owners wife who sorted it as she had no idea what was going on and she is a director of the company!
It very nearly put them out of business, TBH just go and experience their customer service, I'd be very surprised if you bought a car!
The phone call was a beaut!

Oh and the car did sell, it overtook me one day on the A66, apparently it was a 'pup', bullet dodged Very Happy

It actually was, I wrote to the directors, of which she was one of them and she called me and refunded the deposit, the owner John was adamant he wasn't going to refund me but things were getting that 'bad' for them he had to give in.
I don't think they realised the power of the internet, it really did get out of hand. Their biggest mistake was to come on here and try to defend their actions, every post they made they dug the hole deeper.
The phone call was put on SoundCloud and got 500 hits in 24 hrs!
They then got solicitors onto me and threatened to sue me but that was a non starter!
If I remember rightly the thread got 10,000 hits over the 5 days it was up, epic!

#bringthethreadback. I missed all of this. The SoundCloud bit sounds super interesting.

They've been at it again with a guy on the Porsche Facebook thread, he's bought a 996.2 and had a heap of problems with the lovely Jon at Yorkshire Classic Porsche! How the heck does he manage to stay in business?
