Economic Stimulus Plan for Porsche Owners
Last year Porsche was named the Top Prestigious Luxury Automobile Brand amongst a sampling of 1600
average very wealthy Americans. These well healed Porsche fans have an "average income of $349,000 per year and average net worth or $3.7 million." Average? There's nothing average about those numbers. If you were part of the sampling conducted by the Luxury Institute (you lucky bastard) then this post may not be for you. If however, you're like me and simply want to save a buck when you can, then by all means read on, as I'm here to help.
Used Porsche Parts vs. New Porsche Parts
I know a lot of you like to turn wrenches and do some of the basic maintenance on your cars for both enjoyment and for cost savings. Changing your own oil or spark plugs can give you a great sense of accomplishment (so I'm told) not to mention save a few bucks over the cost of having the work done at a dealer on independent Porsche specialists. What about when it's a bigger job and you need more than just oil, filters or plugs? There is an alternative to purchasing brand new Porsche parts.
Used Porsche Parts
Ever wonder where Porsches go when they die? What happens to those Porsches we see on wreckedexotics.com and other news stories? They end up at places like LA Dismantler, one of the largest Porsche only salvage yards with acres and acres of neatly cataloged and arranged Porsche parts (parts you might not even be able to get from a dealer). What's even better is that because these parts are coming out of a car that was damaged cosmetically, they are in "as new" condition, mechanically sound and can be purchased up to 75% less than buying from the local dealer.
5% Discount on Used Porsche Parts
I'm sure by now you've noticed the LA Dismantler advertisement over to the right. Full disclosure coming (as if you couldn't already tell) LA Dismantler is a paid sponsor of FlatSixes.com. But, and this is a big but, that's not the reason for this post. As part of their sponsorship (and part of my economic stimulus plan for Porsche owners) LA Dismantler is offering a 5% discount on all part purchases (up to $1000) by simply mentioning that you saw this post and saw their advertisement here on FlatSixes.com. So for your next planned project or unplanned maintenance needs, simply call Sara at LA Dismantler for a quote and get an extra 5% off by mentioning this site. If, like me, you would prefer to write a check to have your work done, then feel free to pass this along to anyone else you know that does their own maintenance and repairs. Someone should benefit from their generosity!!
Race Ramps Discount Code
Do your own maintenance, but don't have a lift? If so, take a look at this review I wrote about Brute Industries Race Ramps. I won't re-post it all here (you can read the original review) but I did want to point out the Rich Heinz, owner of Brute Industries, is still offering a 10% discount to all subscriber and readers of my site. If you've done your own research and/or like my review and decide you want to purchase any of Brute Industries products be sure to use the following Coupon Code “993c4s8” when entering your order. This coupon code entitles you to a 10% discount off your entire order of any Brute Industry product (not just the Race Ramps) and you can use it and share it as many times as you like.
