About me: - Never had a Porsche before - I was in a market for a 996 - I'm intending to use my first Porsche as a daily driver but I work from home - Don't have a garage just a car port. - Don't have tons of money About the car: - 2005 997 C2 - manufactured in 2004. - Tiptronic - sport seats, bi-xenon, sport steering wheel - Over 80k miles - Clean carfax (1 owner) The First PPI inspection results: - exterior: 3 out of 5 (repainted quarter panels, hood and bumper but no accident/ frame damage; also paint damage in multiple areas from bird residue - can't be buffed out) - interior: 4 of of 5 (minor interior issues like back window carpet discoloration etc) - engine: perfect, no leaks etc. - transmission: multiple error codes (C202, C141, 8001, 8003) prevented further investigation. The mechanic is saying, it might be a minor issue (new battery install) or else... Also, the Sport Button doesn't work - issue, probably, related to the same error codes. The owner is saying, he will get them fixed at a Porsche dealer. Aparently he wasn't aware of the sport button issue !!?? - no metal in the oil filter - good brakes 50%(front) & 100% (back) - good tires - new water pump other issues: - the right tiptronic button is not working properly.Owner will have it replaced - minor misalignment ($250 to fix) - the windows will not dip properly when interior door handles are used (possible microswitch issue) - the car spent a lot of days in the sun. Q: $34k, to buy or not to buy?
