2008 Porsche 997 GT2

PostPosted: Tue Dec 02, 2014 1:09 pm    Post subject: Midlands OPCs, recommendations Reply with quote

We should be moving to Staffordshire over the next few weeks to be nearer family etc. The GT2 is going to need an MOT, oil change and warranty renewal soon in the new year. I've never been to any of the Midlands OPCs, can anyone recommend one, Sutton Coldfield will be nearest, are they good?

Also any recommendation for indy garages near Stafford would be useful.

Hi

I've used Sutton Coldfield for a service and extended warranty about 6 months ago and also for a couple of warranty items since, and would highly recommend them. Pleasure to do business with.

Cheers Mick Smile

Sutton are great, but are relocating to Telford in the not to distant future.
Solihull are a waste of space nooo

Cheers guys, and welcome Mick thumbsup

Sutton are sounding good, Telford is pretty close too, do you know when they're moving?

As far as I know, they don't know themselves yet Dont know
Apparently sutton is to close to Solihull, so they are moving west to spread out the dealerships.

I love in sutton so p:ssed of doesn't cover it frustrated
Still, Telford isn't the other side of the world Laughing

Another vote for Sutton Gav.

You will be eligible for our Midlands Meets, too, including our Xmas party, 28th December.

Sorry Pete, totally missed this post, I've not been on here much as our move went a bit wrong and we had to live with the wife's parents over Christmas... which was nice.


We've moved in now though and I'll be up for the midlands meets, still getting used to the accent Wink Smile


I'm planning to pop to Sutton soon to have a look around.

Also... does anyone know of any detailers in the West Mids? I'm based near Stafford.


The car's caked in road grime and was sat outside for a bit whilst I was homeless, it's now in the new garage but badly in need of a proper detail.


Any recommendations appreciated.
