I have a July '05 2.7 Boxster 987 Left hand drive registered in the UK, I recently had my car up on a ramp and I noiticed that there were traces of oil around the engine /gearbox join.

I've got a nasty feeeling that this is down to a RMS failure, although the car doesn't drip/lose or burn oil. My warranty ran out in July last year.

I take it that I have to cover the costs for a repair myself?? Is it possible to put a porsche extended warranty on the car and if and when the issue gets worse, have the work done then under warranty??

Thanks

It certainly is possible, but it all depends on the thorougness/expertise of the warranty company's inspection procedure prior to issuing the warranty.

If they catch it beforehand, they may disclaim that problem as a "pre-existing condition".

Will, is a new car warranty from Porsche different in other parts of the World? Here in the USA we get 4 years years/50,000 miles. That would still be under warranty, as long as you don't have >50,000 miles.

UK Warranties have different (shorter) durations.

So I take it that the car has to be inspected before an extended warranty is granted, you can't simply pay and get one?

To qualify for a Porsche warranty in the UK (assuming its expired) you must first have a full inspection by the Porsche delaer (approx £200), and then have any issues rectified before they will issue warranty cover (£895 per annum). You don;t have to get the dealer to do any repairs, but you may need proof of the parts used to be Porsche genuine ones, and then pay for a reinspection - if the dealer does the work they wont recharge for inspection.

Thats the worst case !

Provided the car has a full Porsche dealer service history then they should honour any RMS replacement free of charge - the attitude of the UK has changed somewhat, the internet traffic has finally worn them down a little :D
