Is it true that l can get a porsche dealership to do a pre-inspection on a porsche thats being sold by an independent dealer. Is this right. If so, does anyone know how much it costs. The car l'm trying to buy ('07 C2 997) only comes with factory warranty and l want to be sure everything is okay. Thanks for any inputs.

I'm not sure where you are, but if you are in the UK then yes, any OPC will do the Porsche 111-point inspection. The cost varies by location, and what you want it for. For example, OPC Cambridge usually do it for free if you want to take the Porsche Extended Warranty, wheras if you just want it as a PPI, centres charge anything between £120 and £200.

PM me if you want details of the 111-point check.

Thanks Richard, l have the CPO checklist. And l am in San Francisco.

I did mine at Michael Stead, it was $300 ($270 if you mention you're PCA member).

The tech inspection seems to be ok, but the service rep did not mention a couple of the things that the techs actually found to me (2 visor springs broken).

They also didn't check for the fact that the cluster surround was not in the car's original options, and was a replacement. I wouldn't have know if I didn't compare the option codes myself. The replacement surround was dark wood grain while the rest of the interior was aluminum / black. It was hard to tell in certain light conditions, but if I paid $300, I'd expect them to catch little things like that.

They do not do any of the leak down or compression tests. Looks like road test was 4 miles. They do check the brakes and tires.
