Devon & Cornwall Porsche Service & Repair Specialists.
Any age and all models of Porsche receive care and attention in a way that an Official Porsche Centre cannot match. Modern or Classic Porsche, our mechanics have the expertise and interest to look after them all.
Flexibility: Our advantage is that we have flexibility in our approach that an OPC is unable to offer.
Better solutions for replacement parts and Porsche repairs: We can service with original Porsche parts, or where appropriate, we can repair rather than simply fit new. There are literally hundreds of alternative solutions or repairs that we can apply. Our Porsche specialist mechanics can offer improved reliability, durability, performance or are more economic.
Examples: Improved suspension by Bilstein, KW and Exe-TC, more durable Ceramic Intermediate Shaft bearings (IMS bearings) which an official Porsche centre do not offer. Cayenne centre prop shaft bearings are another, replacement more durable suspension bushes yet another. Many alternative repairs exist.
Broad range of expertise: We offer a broader range of services and expertise, any model, any age and any issue…. we are not governed by ‘group targets’, neither are we ‘incentivising’ technicians to ‘look for work’, but we do target quality and care.
Porsche Services – a taste of what we do
Engine and transmission rebuilds: Rebuilds, repairs and modifications in house by our dedicated technician. Air-cooled and modern 987, 996, 997 and Cayenne engines and transmissions.
Porsche Modifications: For performance or for special needs. Suspension, brakes, (power steering for classics), engine, transmission, competition or special needs and requests.
Porsche Accident repairs: For all models of Porsche. We are especially proud of our abilities to reinstate your classic or collectable Porsche to its pre-accident condition. We apply the same care to your modern Porsche. Although your insurer will offer their ‘approved’ repair solution, we are not contracted to them and do not offer them a heavy discount. Therefore we have the budget to repair thoroughly. It’s your right to choose where your damaged Porsche is repaired.
Corrosion repairs for classic Porsche. We have our own in house metal fabrication facility capable of any Porsche body repair from replacement kidney bowls on 911 through to full restorations for 356. All classic Porsche, 356, 911, 964 and 993.
MOT for Porsche: We have in house MOT testing with the latest equipment.
Porsche Diagnostics: We have the latest diagnostics for your Porsche. And for those before diagnostics was a word, our Porsche mechanics have old school expertise.
Air conditioning. Repair, service and retrofit systems.
Hunter Wheel Alignment. Porsche respond well to accurate wheel alignment and this is the most accurate of equipment. We use the latest ‘Hunter’ wheel alignment technology (click here for their website) The result is better handling, better straight line stability, less tyre wear (which alone can pay for the alignment) and improved performance and economy. If your wheels are out of line, they drag, wear out more quickly and handle less well. should you have a specific issue, or want to change the characteristic (eg for track or rally) then come and discuss, we will use our expertise to make a custom alignment for you.
Corner Weight. We offer corner weight (corner balancing) in addition to precise wheel alignment. If you have an air cool Porsche, or any Porsche with adjustable spring platforms then corner weighting is the business. Lots of 911 I drive exhibit poor behaviour, locking one wheel under braking in wet conditions is the most obvious. Few cars have been balance with weight. If you drive alone, we will adjust to your weight, or with passenger. Any of you using cars on track, irrespective of Make are welcome to use this service.
