I saw this post:


I would like my local Indy shop to get one of these. They work on german cars exclusively.

How does one go about getting one of these testing units and what does it cost ?

Last time I checked you order a lease through your local dealer. The last cost I heard was $18,000 for the first year and then $10,000 per year for updates after the first year.

Check with your local dealer(s).

Thanks for that Loren, but.....

My goodness....that is rather expensive, no ? Now I see why my shop doesn't have one !!

Also, I take it that PIWIS II is the latest and greatest unit ?

Thanks Guys.....wow, great "lock-in" by Porsche for their dealers.

My local dealer is not so hot....they're good at inspecting and diagnosing cars, criticizing 3rd party add-ons, and selling new Porsches.

Now fixing a broken Porsche ? .... not so much.
