The video is still up, so I'm guessing nothing has happened. Make sure you get their promises in writing, faxed to you right away.

The video is still up but I have put I note on it that this is resolved. I think I will leave the video up and point people to a new video to talk about what happened.

In the end TV and Radio were wanting to get involved as well and it had frankly gotten a lot bigger than I had ever expected so I was glad to get the call.

PCNA were offering me what they thought I would get a arbertation which is the standard offer for these sorts of cases, where as my position was that I felt what I had been through was more than just a standard case and wanted a full refund or replacement. People can decide themselves if they agree or not.

I can certainly see PCNA point of view and I hope they could see mine. The difference between what was offered and what I wanted was just a few thousand dollars.

It certainly was not worth the mess that this all turned into sadly.

Anyway they have not bribed me or asked me take down the video or anything and because they came to the party and I do still believe in their product I am happy to make a new video saying so. Also to thank everyone (you guys/ladies in particular) for all your support.

I did not want to damage the brand, and I think I need to help people understand that my case was pretty much a one off. Too much hate has been thrown at Porsche for the wrong reasons here and I would like to do what I can to fix that. Their product is good, I just had a disagreement with them over how serious my particular case was. That has been fixed now and I can move on to a new car.

If you don't mind me asking, are you going to get another Porsche?

At the moment.. but even search engines are based on recent event.... a week from now it won't..

Don't get me wrong. I'm not disagreeing with you, but controversy and scandal always dies down.. Just ask Bill Clinton..

Nick, my early build 991 was recalled early on for a major refit of front compartment water seals. It had to go off to a certified body shop with a thick manual and large box of parts, and the job took several days-- so Porsche certainly knew the likely cause. It almost looks like that job was botched in your case.

I was thinking that was the problem also.

Nick solved his problem & that's great!

To jump into another car from the same manufacturer would be insanity!

I hope he continues to stand his ground.....

900,000+ views. Would you call that viral?

I am surprised for that kind of exposure they didn't offer you a full refund.

And as much as I hate to say it, I agree with HotHonda. Turning around and getting right back into a Porsche would be a mistake. Had they given him a trade (like I believe they should have) it would have been one thing.
