Great news, I take it was too late to make any changes?
She did say I could make a change but decided that the spec we had was spot on. They haven't asked for additional money yet though which does confuse me as I believe you need to make another payment at this time?

It varies with OPCs. None of my three new Porsche cars required any interim payment. Just the initial deposit of £3,000/£5,000 and then the final payment on collection. :)
The deposit can vary as well. OPC Bournemouth wanted £5k deposit for a Macan whereas everyone else I spoke to wanted £3k. Bournemouth also couldn’t even arrange a test drive of a Gen 2 Macan with 6 weeks notice and agreeing a date with them :roll: …. So not all OPCs are born equal.

the standard deposit amount “should” be the same because I believe its published by Porsche and varies only based on the car ( presumably based on value )

That was my thought, but that was what I was asked for.

When I ordered my Gen 2 I offered to pay a larger deposit and OPC Reading said no all we need is £3K.

I'd personally actually be happy to pay a larger deposit/interim payment as I could put it on a credit card and get airmiles, whereas my final payment has to be bank transfer and my OPC dont seem to be budging on this. (I assume they would also accept a big suitcase full of money but havent checked)
