New to the owners club, having previously owned a 987 Cayman S for 6 years & now a 718 GT4.
Looking to attend meetings & events when possible in the future & to share tips & advice with other Porsche owners.
Any advice on quality ppf installers welcomed.

Hi , I’ve just had a 718 GT4 done with APS detailing at silverlink ( Newcastle ). Seems decent to me so far but I’m no expert . I still really struggle to see it as good value , but took the  plunge finally after talking to the guys at a demo event at Ferrari a couple of weeks . Lusso detailing is a couple of doors down from them which I think a few Porsche people on here will have also used . If you do call APS ask for Henry or Craig and mention I’ve just had the Python green GT4 done .

Hi thanks, yes know what you mean. I'm just hopeful it's effective as want to keep it spotless. I'll probably opt for front end, sills & rear lower quarter/intakes if I go for it.
My previous Cayman S did pick up a fair few stone chips on the low front end although it was a daily.

Hi Gareth, welcome to the club and R3, although the forum may at first appear a bit antiquated, it's definitely worth checking in and keeping an eye on from time to time, alternatively if you don’t mind filtering through a few emails, it’s easier to subscribe that way hopefully you don’t miss anything that may be of interest.
On the subject of PPF I can also recommend APS, formerly DDB in North Shields, David and his team did a great job previously on a Cayenne I owned then again on my 718 Spyder last year, being black I had the whole car done including the ceramic package which makes it extremely easy to keep clean.
Hope to catch up at an event in the near future.
