    Give Stuart a call at SP Autobahn in Stirling, he's recently carried out this job on a Tipec members car & he was delighted with the service.

     Brian - Set off to visit SP Autobahn yesterday but less than a mile from home and still in the 30mph limit there was a loud bang from the rear of the car. The engine continued to run normally but there was no drive in any gear. Since the car (51 plate 996 C2 3.4) was only purchased four days ago it was loaded onto a flatbed to be returned to the selling dealer for investigation. I doubt that I will get it back in time for Porsche in the Glen. This is Porsche number 11 for me and the only one which has ever suffered a roadside failure.

    Brian - good news/bad news - turns out that a driveshaft had popped out due to incorrect installation and that has now been corrected and the car is capable of moving under its own power. Unfortunately the AA Relay operation have managed to put a sizeable dent in the NSF wheel arch while transporting the car. The estimate for repair is around £800.

    Not such good news ...I take it they will admit all liability and it will not involve your insurance in any way.
    Did it happen going to the dealers or on the way back as the AA can say it was like that when we picked it up.

    AA videoed the car before it was loaded onto the flatbed and there was no damage. The AA operator has reported the damage on his final report which has been sent in. I have been asked to forward an estimate to their claims department.
