Black paintwork is difficult to maintain whatever the circumstances. This daily used Cayenne required an extensive paint correction and finishing with 2 layers of ceramic coat.
Check out the before and after photos. It’s safe to say that we can let the pictures do most of the talking…

911UK Cars & Coffee on Saturday 29th April hosted by our expert team at Precision.
On the day, members experienced Precisions state of the art service facility whilst enjoying a coffee with fellow enthusiasts and the Precision team. Using the latest Porsche PIWIS testers, Precisions Porsche trained technicians were able to provide one-to-ones and diagnose any fault codes/errors detected and understand the car's recorded data including Rev Range activity.
In support of forum member “deMort”, members were able to help his daughter raise money and enable her to visit Zambia and Botswana as a volunteer at a local school in Mkushi. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/zambiaexpedition
911UK moderators were also present at Precision, with 911UK stickers, event passes and lanyards.

His extensive background includes: Head Detailer for McLaren Automotive, Previous winner of Rolls-Royce and Mercedes Benz National Concours, working on Ayrton Senna’s JPS Lotus-Renault 97T and 6 magazine featured vehicles.

Porsche has confirmed it has axed all diesel engine options from its range with immediate effect. They said the decision was made due to a 'cultural shift' by the brand's customers which means that 'demand for diesel models is falling'. Porsche customers will no longer have the option of a new diesel-powered Macan, Panamera or Cayenne as Porsche switches full attention to petrol and hybrid models.
And fanning the flames of a complete move away from the 'devil' fuel, Porsche confirmed in a statement that the Macan S Diesel had been 'taken out of the production programme' too, meaning it will only sell petrol-powered 4x4s for the foreseeable future.
No matter. If you own a diesel variant, bring it to Precision Porsche for all its servicing and maintenance and take advantage of our Fixed price Servicing, available on all Porsche models.
A new report claims the next-generation GT3 will forego its naturally-aspirated flat-6 engine in favor of a new turbocharged flat-6 unit. They also said an 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission will handle shifting duties. Although forced induction may leave some loyalists feeling soured, power will supposedly climb to 550 horsepower, up from the current 911 GT3's 500 hp. The current car employs a 4.0-liter flat-6 engine.
Porsche will perform a balancing act with the addition of a turbocharger system, which means added weight to the car. The report said the next 911 GT3 will rely more on high-strength materials to offset any weight gains. Active aerodynamic systems will likely be present, too.
Ahead of the next 911, which should debut in late 2018, Porsche will reveal the 2018 911 GT3 RS at the Geneva motor show. Images of the new car already leaked and show more aggressive front fascia and other exterior tweaks. We'll also likely see a 20hp increase to 520 hp total.
Whether you have a turbo-d GT3 or naturally aspirated version, here at Precision we offer fixed price servicing on all models, using only genuine OEM parts, ensuring your Porsche warranty remains intact. At more preferable rates than a main dealer.
See you soon.
The high-pitched noise sometimes emitted from brake pads and rotors that causes stress, and sometimes embarrassment is a completely normal occurrence, say Porsche.
In an overly informative video explaining what brake squeal is, and why it happens, owners should rest easy knowing the noise occurs when energy and heat convert to vibrations. The brake rotor then acts as a "speaker" and amplifies the vibrations to create the squeal. In Porsche cars specifically, the large brake pads can create more squeal at low speeds due to pad pressure distribution. But, if an owner is concerned, a Precision Porsche technician can confirm the noise is nothing more than the parts operating in a normal fashion.
So don't worry too much about the brake squeal. Instead, just enjoy the car no matter what obscure sounds it may make. Besides, a Porsche powertrain and its associated soundtrack should more than make up for occasional brake squeal.
At Precision Porsche we offer Fixed Price Servicing on all Porsche models including the GT's and because we only use genuine Porsche parts your warranty always remains intact. Using the very latest Porsche diagnostic equipment we offer more favourable rates than a main dealer.
GT 911s are rare. Only one of them was built in limited-series numbers, for example. They’re also not as fragile as you may think – the 996 and 997-era cars didn’t even suffer from the oil leak issues that famously let down other variants. The ‘Mezger’ engine is hugely strong – and although it was replaced in the 991-series car, and the first ones of these subsequently blew themselves up, they should all have been substituted by now with perfectly solid motors.
