Porsche Dealer can't print out DME report for a PPI ?

Recommended Posts

I cant believe a Porsche Dealer Cannot print out a DME Ignition Range Report ?

Back in September 2012, I was looking at an 06 997 coupe with low miles. I never got far into the hunt because I could never nail down answers to the litany of questions anyone would have including a PPI report. The Sales rep at that time was not customer friendly. Lo and behold, yesterday, I get an email from a "new" salesman inquiring if I still had interest in the car? Being inquisitive, I found my original notations and decided to explore. When I got to the request again about the Ignition Range Interrogation, I got this back from the service manager ;

"Hello Phil,

Thank you again for your interest in our 2006 Porsche 911.

Unfortunately, we are unable to print out the information, so we are showing it to you in hand written form. The ECU data did not show any beneficial information. This will show over revs from ranges 1-6.

Please let me know what you think!

Sincerely, "

This can't be legit. Maybe the office printer died yesterday, but something ain't right here? Perhaps this is why a perfectly good 06 has been sitting for 265 days ? Opinions please.

Many thanks

RUN! Now!!What a joke!!

First, yes they can. I just had a dealership run a DME report on a 2011 911 GTS 2 weeks ago.

I like this salesman's line the best:

"The ECU data did not show any beneficial information"

That's because it shows that the car has been beat to pi$$. So it is not beneficial to him to post it. But it is beneficial for you to run from the car.

Renge #1 and #2 are fine and normal. Range #3 is a little of a gray area. Ignitions in range #4 and #5 show abuse (missed shift most likely) and would be about the time when Porsche start to void warranty claims.

Keep looking. There are always MANY Porsches for sale. A better car is just around the corner. Embrace the hunt. You are very fortunate.
