  1. So fyi, I went ahead and bought the car and I love it. There is nothing quite like the sound of that engine as it reaches for redline (perhaps that's why the previous owner exceeded it every now and then). Anyway, I wanted to thank everyone for their advice. It was very reassuring and I look forward to some seriously fun times with this car. -John
  2. Thanks, you have set my mind at ease. The paperwork is finalized and I will be picking her up sometime next week. I can barely sleep. -John I have yet to see any Porsche without some type 1 over revs. Type 1 are the safe over revs - they were controlled by the rev limiter. As said here before we suspect that the actual count is "ignitions" - so in one crankshaft revolution there would be 6 ignitions. I would not worry about any type 1 over revs when buying a used Porsche just type 2.
  3. So I checked, no type 2 overrevs but 2800 type 1 in 41,000 miles. Is that an unusually high number or par for the course for a car like this? I already put a deposit on the car but have one last chance to back out before it is finalized. Thanks for everyone's help.
  4. Another thing, the clutch pedal seems quite stiff. Is this normal or is it a sign the clutch is going? It otherwise seems to engage fine and I don't feel any slipping. Any good way to check the clutch? Thanks. I appreciate the speedy feedback as the dealer is pressing me to make a decision soon.
  5. Hello all, great forum. I am considering an 04 GT3, Porsche Certified with 41,000 miles on the clock. I have not yet seen any cars with higher mileage than this. Should I be worried and wait to find a lower mileage car? Aside from routine maintenance, are there any major repair or problem areas I need to worry about that wouldn't be covered under the warranty (in particular, the 2 year extension). Also, under hard acceleration, it seemed to pull to the side. I couldn't tell if it was cold tires, ruts in the road, or a true alignment problem. It felt like an autocross car with a toe out align
