I brought my Porsche 911 (997 C4S) from Kier at Chappell Sports cars almost a month ago now. I’ll cut right to it in case you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to read the rest – you’re here reading, looking for some confidence in buying your car (I did the same).
Should you buy your car from Chappell Sports cars? - YES
Will the service be as good as Kier says? – YES
Can I trust this car ‘dealer’ – YES
Is this review for real? - YES ;)
I was looking around for a month before I found my car at Chappell Sports Cars. This included a couple of test drives at Porsche. I went and saw the car at Chappell and pretty much knew it was the one – fantastic condition – and it had been sold and brought back a few times by Kier so they knew the history very well.
Kier is very knowledgeable with a strong background and history with Porsche – he knows his stuff. I immediately liked Kier, but I’m also a sceptic who thinks that’s part of his job – he’s doing a sale – the service can’t be that good? (it can) the warranty surely doesn’t cover all that? (it does).. Is he really such a nice guy (he is).
In my first month of ownership the Porsche has been fantastic – I’ve loved it. It’s my first, and certainly won’t be the last. I would happily buy again from Kier and Chappell Sports Cars, and would check them first before the trader.
I had a minor issue with the car, which I had repaired at my local Porsche as I didn’t feel it was Chappell’s issue, and as Chichester was a drive for me it was just easier. Anyway, I spoke to Kier about something else and as soon as he found out about this – he paid for the bill. That was Friday afternoon, by Monday morning the money was in my account.
I also spoke with Steve, very helpful – he’s been with Porsche’s for the past 20 odd years (heaps of knowledge & experience) and lastly Dan, who looked after some prep work and a little Audio upgrade for me. Very nice guy, and again, exceptional customer service.
In short – if you’ve seen a car you like here, I wholeheartedly recommend buying from the guys at Chappell Sports Cars.
Lastly, enjoy your Porsche, best move I ever made!!
