    Factory Collection question ...

     Folks,

    I am giving some thought to doing a factory collection for my GT3 next year. However i wanted to get some stone projection film fitted to the car before driving it (especially as it is a long drive back to blighty !). Does anybody know if it is possible to arrange this with the factory ? 

     

    Cheers,

     

    Chris

    Not as far as I am aware. You might be able to have this done locally in Germany on the day after pick up.

    Had mine done as soon as I was back in the UK, fortunately picked up no FOD on the way home.

    Definitely do the factory collection, it's an unforgettable and fascinating experience it and it makes your car feel more "special" somehow, having collected it personally from its birthplace (even if mine was technically made in Finland albeit with components made in Zuffenhausen)!

    you will find plenty of outlets in stuttgart that can do this. should not take them more than a day or two at max.

     Got any web links as i am having trouble finding any...


    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    Try this and search under Stuttgart´s zipcode (PLZ).


    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    thanks mate,

    have you used them before ? 


    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    Maybe it is even possible to have some cheap shop install some sort of temporary film? You know, quick 'n dirty, and when you're back in Blighty, you could throw some serious money at having a proper film? Might be a stretch, but it'll probably save you one or two days waiting in Germany...

    Or, have porscha arrange it for you, before picking it up?

    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    Interesting point, The big concern i have is getting an installer that can do a quality job (Not cut the film on the car !)

    I have talked to my Porsche dealer in the UK but they are a waste of space as far as sorting this or offering advice is concerned. I think i might talk direct to the factory.


    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    May be, you should contact  TechArt - they are near to the factory. If they can´t help, they should know somebody who can.

    Haven´t used them but were suggested by a friend who deals with foil covering regularly.

    Alternatively, could you request to keep the delivery foil on the front of the car for transit?


    Re: Factory Collection question ...

    One idea: you might want to contact the Porsche dealer right next to the factory. I am sure they can install the protection film Smiley
