    Thanks.. Hoping to get the car on the road soon, my wife and I have already booked a weekend away near Fort William 28th 29th July, It would be nice to go up in the Porsche, if not, my wife has a BMW Mini Cooper S, still quite nice on the twisty bits...

    I just spoke with D&G. They have started putting the Cylinder Heads back on. The right Cyl head 4-6 was cracked and one of the cams was pitted due to the cracked Cylinder head spraying water, both are u/s. I managed to get a replacement head, with a pair of good cams, new timing chain and cam followers, the valves were reseated and the head was pressure tested.
    They are replacing the AOS, doing a gearbox and diff oil change, checking the condition of the IMS, not sure if it is a single bearing  or a double bearing yet, single bearings can be bought for about £40.00 but double bearings can only be bought as an after market kit for £600.00 unless someone knows different?
    Might get the car back next week......

    Hi Steve and welcome,
    I too have only been a member for a short while and have found everyone I've met to be really friendly and approachable. Good luck with the repairs,  Gary at D&G is a super nice fella and has been really helpful in respect of my broken Boxster, they are very highly regarded as Porsche engineers and go out of their way to make the occasional perils of ownership a little less painful.

    Thanks Kevin, I agree, Gary and Dean are really helpful and not money grabbing like most, they will give you honest options that are best for the car and your pocket.  Should get the car back next week, it might be a little more sprightly since the cracked head renewal, It had apparently being going on a while, only noticed when white gunge was spewing out of the header tank...Ironically I was driving to D&G to get them to replace a the AOS at the time..
