The team at William Francis are trained and experienced Porsche mechanics, equipped with the tools and diagnostic equipment, to perform the vast majority of work in-house and to the highest standards. Many main dealers now lack the experience to work on some of the older cars, but we have the knowledge and training to ensure that your car is serviced and repaired the right way – every time.

Whether you’ve bought your first Boxster, or have a high-end classic, the same attention to detail and commitment can be expected from our team. We use a range of suppliers and contacts to ensure that costs are always kept in check. For advanced work, such as engine and gearbox rebuilds, we work with some of the finest engineers in the country to ensure that your projects are turned around in good time and to the highest standards.

So whether you need an MOT, or are looking to revive a classic – we can help.

 

 

We recently became a Mobil Service Centre (MSC), joining an elite group of garages that bare the internationally renowned Mobil 1™ brand.  Reflecting excellence and long-term care, the Mobil 1™ name is synonymous with the history of Porsche and is used in world championship and passenger vehicles alike.

We Recommend: Advanced Formula Motor Flush with an oil change

i.axd.png

  • Cleans engines internally and provide anti-wear protection
  • Frees sticking piston rings, hydraulic valve lifters and variable valve timing systems
  • Removes lacquer, varnish and sludge deposits from the crankcase
  • Neutralises crankcase acids, keeping new oil cleaner, for longer

Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush has been specifically formulated to combat the effects that extended oil drain periods and modern driving habits have on today’s technically sophisticated engines. Urban cycle and start/stop driving patterns increase the rate at which acid builds up; leading to accelerated and premature engine wear. Excessive lacquer and varnish formation reduces the efficiency of oil system components, such as VVT systems, piston rings and Hydraulic Valve Lifters.

Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush is fully compatible with all engine components and engine oils which are formulated to meet API and ACEA Service Classifications and international motor manufacturers’ specifications.

We consider it essential that engines are flushed with Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush at each service.

Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush is fully compatible with and will not affect wet clutches.

Forté Petrol Specialist Injector Cleaner is a complex blend of specially selected cleaning agents which act together to dissolve deposits that are formed in fuel systems which restrict the efficient delivery of fuel to the combustion chambers. It is compatible with all fuel system and engine components, including lambda sensors and catalytic converters.

Testimonials

There is plenty to like about Porsche servicing with William Francis. For me the best thing of all is that the team is always very interested in what I need doing, and whatever needs fixing, they take the engineer's approach, finds the root of the problem and fix it. Personal service and no-one's on a Porsche-fuelled ego trip - it couldn't be better!

Having bought my first Porsche which was in need of a refresh after 70k miles and 18 years I had completely impartial advice from Charlie . There is no pressure in fact the opposite. The 996tt is now a very different car due to suspension changes. Won't be going anywhere else

I’ve owned my Porsche 3.2 Carrera for so many years that it has become almost one of the family. Charlie treats it like a caring uncle; its health has never been better.
