We ensure that only those Porsche with a comprehensive history that have been major accident free will be considered. Each car is appraised either by Mark Sumpter or Jamie Tyler who have forty years Porsche experience between them.
As part of our initial inspection we check the chassis number and VIN plate. Each car is HPI and national mileage register checked for any discrepancies. We also check the service book schedules, MOT's and supporting paperwork.
There's only so much you can discover from a visual appraisal and test drive - we use the most modern and comprehensive computer diagnostic systems to give us a full picture of each Porsche we consider.
Our comprehensive appraisal includes checking the chassis and inner wings for evidence of repair - we get 'right under the skin' of each Porsche - years of experience mean that we know exactly how things should be for each Porsche model and variant.
A vital component - we check wear, general condition and tread depth at this early stage.
Our years of driving, selling, servicing and repairing all types of Porsche give us a keen insight into what makes a great example. A thorough test drive alerts us to any potential issues that may warrant further investigation.
After a vehicle has passed our stringent pre-purchase criteria and has been purchased, it is then handed over to one of our in house Porsche technicians to start its comprehensive mechanical inspection.
Here, the brake pads and disks are checked for condition and wear using a micrometer and will be replaced if necessary.
If brake discs are above the recommended thickness tolerance, they are then checked for run out (the cause of brake judder) using a dial gauge and replaced if necessary.
Now the wheels are off, the technical team recheck in detail the tyre condition and wear profile on the inner and outer edges.
At this stage we check suspension joints, bushes and shock absorbers to ensure everything is as it should be. Any issues are immediately rectified.
Every Paragon Approved Porsche has the next due service completed (irrespective of the due date) and a new MOT issued by our in-house testing team before being offered for sale.
We only use Genuine Porsche parts and recommended Mobil lubricants to strictly follow Porsche own service standards.
We firmly believe that if something is worth doing, it's worth doing properly. Bodywork and paint preparation is carried out to our extremely high standard - no 'smart repairs' here.
With state of the art equipment and expertise to help us prepare our Porsche for sale to exceptional standards.
Getting the wheels absolutely perfect is a key stage of our preparation. If needed, they can be professionally fully refurbished to our own exacting standards.
Once the mechanical and bodywork preparation is complete, we give each Porsche a thorough valet, and is then ready to be presented into our showroom.
Now ready for the showroom, each Paragon prepared Porsche now qualifies for our bespoke 12 months/12,000 mile comprehensive parts and labour warranty - included in the price.
We are extremely confident in our selection, preparation and presentation of all of our Paragon Aproved Porsche for sale.
